• The new uniforms stole the spotlight yesterday and everyone has done a story on them. Let's start with Rob Moseley at the RG. Ted Miller's piece is here. John Hunt's story is here. GoDucks.com has put together a little highlight video from the press conference here.
Personally, I like them, especially the black ones.
• On to a couple of stories that aren't about the new uni's. First is Moseley who looks at the voluntary summer workouts which began yesterday.
“The O line and the D line kind of get their pass drops and pass rush,” quarterback Nate Costa said. “It’s good for the quarterbacks — you get a little movement in the pocket — and (the linemen) get to work the first two steps (after the snap). That’s something we’ve been doing so far that hopefully we continue to do.”
• Ted Miller has another piece in his continuing series, "Don't be surprised if..."
Don't be surprised if ... Oregon's defense is better in 2009, despite welcoming back only five starters.
His reasoning? Says Miller, "To be honest, it takes root in this: Chip Kelly said so." It's a good read, check it out.
