Duck Stuff: Sunday Edition

■ Jason Selby gives tribute to Phil Knight after he announced he is stepping down as chairman of Nike.

Uncle Phil, I will never be able to thank you enough. Not only did you have the willingness to create the Nike shirt, shorts and shoes that I am wearing right now, but you provided me, and so many others, with countless memories that will flash in front of my eyes until I die. Many athletes have chosen Oregon because of the opportunity that you have given them. To that point, many students have chosen Oregon because of what you have done for athletics. I wish you the best in your future endeavors, and I certainly hope to see you around campus again some time soon.

■ Joey Holland believes our current wide receiver corps might be one of the best in Oregon history. Time will tell.

Uncle Phil is retiring from Nike, but not from the University of Oregon...that's a promise!
