Never had the chance to meet Dick Harter. Obviously I was not living here during his tenure as Oregon head basketball coach. Despite that, I've always been stricken with the passion people have expressed to me over the years regarding an era that "ended" in March of 1978. When you hear fans speak of the Harter years it's as if they took place within the past 5-6 years. The tone of the voice, the twinkle in the eye. Amazing. I'm sure there will be some kind of celebration of what he meant to the program prior to the LSU game this evening.
I still think Peyton Manning should sign with the Broncos. I'd go Arizona second but Denver has the best young offensive line with 4 draft picks the past 4 years. On the outside Eddie Royal is a heck of a weapon who was injured last year. Opposite him you have Demaryius Thomas who came on a ton with more than 700 receiving yards his last 7 games of the season. Willis McGahee is a legit front line back and of course the division is mediocre with the always underachieving Bolts and the very ordinary Raiders & Chiefs.
Tiger Woods tweeted this morning his achillies is okay, just a strain. He should be able to tune it up once before the Masters at Bay Hill, Arnold Palmer's tournament. Something just isn't sitting right. He had the wild finish a couple of Sunday's ago at the Honda. Aside from that run, he hasn't been in the mix at all. When he walked off Torrey Pines after winning his 14th major, the 2008 US Open, it appeared Jack's record of 18 majors was toast. Now I think not so much. Woods is now 36 and needs 5 more which is a pretty strong, hall of fame accomplishment itself. Can he stay healthy? Only time will tell!
