After a two week holiday hiatus, the Morning Radar resumes this week for a daily tour around the blogosphere.
Oregon's Men Basketball team beat #21 Arizona on Saturday, but lost to Arizona State (a very good, up-and-coming team) on Thursday. After the loss, here's what Dave from Addicted to Quack (say that ten times fast) had to say:
Thank God that you can win the conference tournament and still go to the NCAAs. At this point, that may be our only chance. I mean, this is a conference game against Arizona State. You don't get that back. Are they going to fight and turn it around? They have all the talent they need, but they need to get over the mental humps that are plaguing this team right now.
Puh-lease... You're lucky you're not an Oregon State fan...

Rick Neuheisel and UCLA may be in the process of landing a 5-star quarterback, who is considering transferring from Michigan. Just another sign of how coaching moves (Dennis Erickson to ASU, Neuheisel to UCLA) are making the conference a much tougher football conference.
As you may know, the BCS National Championship Game is tonight. Jim Tressel's bunch got rocked last year by Florida in the championship game, and he hasn't forgotten that. Tressel had his video production staff put together a 10 minute video, basically trashing the Buckeyes. He then made all his players watch it. Here is a short portion of the film, called "Take Home Talk", that was intended to motivate Ohio State for tonight's game.
Watch this as if you were in an Ohio State players' shoes:
