• Bob Rickert continues his "Once a Duck always a Duck" series as he sits down with former Oregon QB A.J. Feeley. This is Part 1 of a two part Q&A.
• Dale Newton looks at a couple of possible 2012 recruits and likes what he sees in these prospects.
Jeremy Castro: A four star 6'1" 240lb. LB out of Vista Murrieta H.S. in Murrieta, CA.
Forget the 40 time: no one has put a stopwatch on linebacker/defensive end Jeremy Castro, but coaches don't need one: as a high school junior he had 111 tackles and 11 sacks. Already he has offers from a host of schools, including LSU and Oklahoma.
Josh Garnett: A 6'5" 275lb. OT out of Puyallup H.S. in Puyallup, WA.
He's a huge, elite lineman, prodigiously strong, mobile and athletic enough to be throwing blocks 30 yards downfield. He doesn't just throw blocks, he throws opponents, shoving them down like poorly-dug fence poles.
• George Schroeder reports that Oregon has hired the law firm of Bond, Schoeneck & King to represent them in any possible inquiry brought on by the NCAA regarding the Lyles affair. One of their lawyers, Mike Glazier has been referred to as "The Cleaner" and has been hired by other universities facing similar issues.
• Dale Newton gives a letter grade to each of the offensive position groups for a future article being compiled by LSU blogger Bob Wynn. He gives our running back group the highest possible mark, A+.
This is the most devastating, effective running attack in college football, and it has a good chance of being even more varied, innovative and productive in Chip Kelly's third year as head coach.
