Rob: "There were some highlight plays," UO coach Chip Kelly said. "I thought Daryle Hawkins had a nice day today. Marcus (Mariota) played pretty good. Bryan (Bennett) did a decent job in there. It just depends. You'll see a guy make a good play, but then you watch the film and you missed a couple things."
Chris: Oregon’s second scrimmage of the spring took place Tuesday, as head coach Chip Kelly said the Ducks got off 141 total team snaps this morning inside Autzen Stadium. According to Kelly, the high volume of snaps today was a lot, even for Oregon’s lofty standards.
“Usually we’re in the 120 (range),” said Kelly.
• Jeffrey Martin notes Nick Aliotti is "cautious" about the defesive unit.
He’s going to worry, even when he admits there might not be much to worry about.
Nick Aliotti can’t help himself. The Oregon defensive coordinator likes what he has seen thus far from his unit, pleased with the effort and the knowledge his Ducks have exhibited. But it’s only April, when everyone often seems destined for stardom.
