There are quite a few Pac 12 mentions in this edition of Linked Up. We’ll start with a podcast from the Pac 12.  They break down some of the teams that could be ‘dancing’ in the conference next month. I think one is a lock. ESPN looks at the Pac 12 as the Crazy Uncle in the family, when it comes to March.

Oregon Baseball kicks off on Friday and Comcast Sportsnet has a preview of the Ducks as they kickoff 2013 in Honolulu. If your looking for a breakdown of the team, look no further than Addicted to Quack. Thus far it’s in two parts. Pitching, and Hitting. I like that, keeping it simple.

Finally, the Eugene Daily Emerald offers up 5 Reasons To Look Forward to Oregon Baseball.

Onto football and another waaaaaaay early Top prediction for 2013. Bruce Feldman from CBS has released his Top 10 list, which includes Oregon, but one team is ahead of them and he thinks they may have the best shot at beating Alabama in 2013.

In other Pac 12 News, a clothing outlet has been endorsed by a NCAA Football coach, kinda. I believe it’s a little tongue in cheek, but amusing none the less. Now if only they could get the Duck to model for say….Abercrombie. Speaking of Arizona, they like to send Valentines to show they care. Awwww. so sweet.

We all remember the Oregon Duck and his Gangham Style case you don’the’s at it again!

In other news, comedian Will Ferrell has a new job, Security at The Staples Center, looks like Shaq got into some trouble. Oh, and someone who used to play in the NBA is turning 50. I’ll give you a hint. His initials are MJ. Michael Jordan will be on the SI cover, for the…50th time. He, of course, also made the list for the Top 10 Slam Dunks…ever
