• Dale Newton believes there is a quiet revolution in recruiting at Oregon.
Chip Kelly is an innovator. He cuts through tradition and habit by constantly asking and evaluating, is this the best way to do this? In every detail, from practice organization to offensive tempo to fourth and three, he finds better ways.
He's applying the same bold, systematic, analytical, efficient approach to recruiting, and one evaluation at a time, he and his staff are transforming the Oregon football team.
• Dale also has a profile on a new member of the Ducks in 2011, OL James Euscher.
Aloha offensive line coach Bill Volk told Jerry Ulmer of oregonlive, "Besides his physicality, and his unbelievable athleticism for a big guy, his leadership and demeanor probably mean way more than what he does on the field. He's the foundation, the chemistry builder, the guy everybody turns to for leadership in that crunch moment. He has such an aura about him."
