Kurt Liedtke was born and raised in Eugene, Ore., but that alone cannot explain the depth of his loyalty and knowledge of Ducks football. He is regarded as a walking encyclopedia of Oregon Ducks athletics and has a collection of video and memorabilia that could be the basis for a museum. With a respect for the program's history and the ability to put the latest games and development in appropriate context, Liedtke serves a bridge between past and present.
