Mike Bellotti will be leaving Oregon to take a job with ESPN as an analyst.
• Andy Mac continues to preview the 2010 football team and looks at the offensive line.
Bo Thran (LT), Carson York (LG), Jordan Holmes (C), RG Mark Asper (RG) and C.E. Kaiser (RT) appeared in every game, accounting for 63 of a possible 65 starting assignments along the offensive line. They paved the way for a record-setting tailback (James) and were the conference’s second-best squad in protecting the quarterback, conceding an average of one sack per game.
Competition for playing time and the remaining spots on the travel squad figures to be fierce among several other returnees along with newcomers Ryan Clanton (Bakersfield, Calif./Bakersfield Christian), Hroniss Grasu (Encino, Calif./Crespi Carmelite) and Nick Rowland (Peoria, Ariz./Centennial).
