Expectations remain sky high for the Oregon Ducks in 2013, anything short of competing for the Pac-12 title and a BCS run considered a disappointment barring catastrophic injuries. A business-as-usual tact remains despite the head coaching change, with only subtle changes expected in the works.
■ Michael Carrow says that just because some Oregon players weren't drafted doesn't but they aren't loved.
■ Ryon Healy's bat is still on fire as Oregon beat WSU yesterday in Pullman, 6-3.
Healy went 2 for 4 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead Oregon (36-11, 18-5 Pac-12) to a series-clinching win. J.J. Altobelli was 3 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI.
Game three is today at noon.
