Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Close

They say you have to win a couple of close ones in the big tourney to sniff the National Championship.

What if you're Oregon?  How many close ones do you have to win to maintain that #2 seed the experts divine for the Ducks come tourney time?

It was a hell of a weekend in the Bay Area for Oregon.  It always is. This time Oregon skated with a couple of close calls, beating Cal on a last second dagger by Dillon Brooks, and Stanford on a lucky and wild tip in by Jordan Bell.

Oregon is good, but I don't know if it can survive by playing down to the opposition.  As I've said all year, the Ducks need an athletic big man who can consistently slash the middle of the key and create his own shot.

Better rebounding is key as well.  Chris Boucher gets pushed around if a board is disputed. Sometimes Bell is lonely out there without rebounding help, and if he happens to be napping at any given moment all you can say is WTF?
