Media: TV: ESPN-U 5 a.m.   Pac-12 Network 5:30 p.m.

Football recruiting geeks live for this day as high school seniors across the nation sign on the dotted line, committing to their favorite school. Oregon’s class has shaped up to be very good; they’re ranked 14th nationally by Rivals.com. The burning question for Duck fanatics: Will Vernon Adams, Eastern Washington’s exceptional quarterback, flip to the Ducks? Check out FishDuck.com for the latest updates throughout the day.

2/4/15 Men’s Basketball – Oregon vs Washington – Matt Knight Arena 4 p.m.

Media: TV: ESPN 2   Radio: Oregon IMG Network

Lookie here: the Ducks are tied for fourth place in the Pac-12, along with the Beavs and the Bruins. They’ll have to up their game to stay in the hunt for a spot in the Big Dance. In the trip up north earlier this year, the Ducks were swept by the Washington schools, but with Michael Chandler and Roman Sorkin helping out at the post position, this isn’t the same team.

Raised in the Central Oregon mill town of Prineville beneath deep blue skies and rim rock, I attended the University of Oregon and during my collegiate summers, I worked in a lumber mill and also fought range fires on the Oregon High Desert for the Bureau of Land Management. After graduating from college at the University of Oregon, I swung from being budding hippy to cop work. I’m still wondering about how that came about. I was a police officer with the Port of Portland and after leaving police work, I obtained an MFA degree in Creative Writing from Vermont College. I live in Portland, Oregon with my wife, my daughter and a spunky bichon frise named Pumpkin. I’ve had short stories publishing in two Main Street Press anthologies. Harkness is my first novel.
