• Ronald Hill @FishDuck.com says these days the Oregon program is simply reloading, not rebuilding.
• Adam Jude shares a feature story from the Sunday R-G that focuses on Kiko Alonso.
That was evident in Oregon’s Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin, when Alonso, a backup linebacker, was named the defensive player of the game. He had five tackles, including 1 1/2 sacks, and his diving interception set up the Ducks’ go-ahead touchdown late in the third quarter.
“People on the team knew he had that in him,” Michael Clay said. “For him to showcase that on the national stage, it made him a household name. Kiko’s sense of confidence just shot up from that.”
Alonso is now penciled in as Oregon’s starting middle linebacker entering his fifth year on campus.
“He could be a dominating football player,” UO defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti said.
