The by-this-time-tomorrow-night-there-will-be-actual-real-live-Pac-10-football-to-talk-about edition:
--- Here's the latest on Oregon's injury situation from the Eugene Register-Guard as well as a note that Patrick Chung will wear No. 29 Saturday night to honor deceased player Todd Doxey. Certainly, Saturday figures to be quite an emotional game for both sides.
--- Also in the Guard is this blog from former football coach Ken Woody, who worked at UW, WSU and Oregon during his career. He has an interesting observation about how Oregon may simplify its defense for the Huskies this year to avoid the big plays that happened last season.
--- Here's a good scouting report on the Ducks in the words of the team's two coordinators from the Portland Tribune.
--- Here's a site I could get hooked on pretty quickly, showing the changing movements in the betting lines for all college football games. (The UW-Oregon game is incorrectly listed as a 3:30 p.m. start, unfortunately). it shows that 63 percent of people who have bet on the game have taken Oregon and given the points, meaning 37 percent have taken UW and the points. It features an even cooler breakdown of betting activity over the last six days, showing again that the betting public likes the Ducks.
--- John Tamanaha of MSNBC.com picks the Ducks to win 41-23.
--- In case you missed it, some guys at USC had a little fun with the Rick Neuheisel ad that ran in LA papers this week.
All for now.
