Vote for Nate, Oregon rising

Interesting what you can find out there on the Web — or what gets sent your way.
First, here’s a link to a place to vote on NBA.com for its photo of the year. One of the finalists is a picture of Nate Robinson doing — what else? — a high-wire dunk.
Second, here’s Ken Pomeroy’s blog where he speculates that the Oregon Ducks could be one of the surprise teams in the country this year. It’s in the second entry.
I agree that the Ducks could be vastly improved this season. And there’s no doubt that Oregon will be one of the most interesting programs to watch this season. If they aren’t a lot better, there could be a whole lot of changin’ goin’ on down there.
Not sure I agree with his premise that all those close losses means a team is about to break through. As a coach told me once, coming close just means you just aren’t good enough to win.
We’ll soon see which way it turns out for Oregon.
