07:31 AM ET 02.04 | And, on the seventh day, the Dana Altman's Ducks play. The Ducks played four straight weeks on a Sunday to open Pac-12 play before last week's series with the Los Angeles schools. No other Pac-12 school will play that many consecutive Sunday games in conference play this season. So for Altman, the Saturday USC matchup allowed him to turn the page on four straight Sundays of games and headaches he says the conference's schedule presented to the Ducks' fans and personal schedules. "I think we're one of the schools that maybe got more Sundays than anybody and I don't have all the stats in front of me but we got hammered pretty hard this year," he said. ... "We haven't had a Sunday off. I hate to whine but guys need a day off every now and then. When you're playing on Sunday, Monday's not really a day off."

They're kids, they're young, they'll get over it. Put them in the Marine Corps and let them feel what real work is. Give me a break dude

Monday isn't a day off because this is college and the kids have to go to class. Altman has a point.
