9/22/2010: John Hunt has an Oregonian story on the latest in Ducks basketball troubles. They are expected to fall below NCAA academic standards in Spring, and then have their allowable practice time and scholarship support cut – unless the NCAA gives the new coach a break. A commenter points out that Coach Altman still hasn’t signed his contract with UO. He didn’t know what he was getting into, and now that he does he is holding out for a better deal. Kilkenny, you rascal. Meanwhile we hear rumors that the athletic department will be renting out Matt Court for a series of big time wrestling events. That lot has gone from a bakery to cage matches in just 4 years. Gibbon would have loved it.
