• Josh White @FishDuck.com believes there are seven things you need to watch for at the spring game.
• Rob Moseley thinks the main story line today will be the quarterback battle.
“I would be shocked if it was make-or-break for either guy,” UO offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich said. “Just because they’ve been consistently on an uptick, and neither guy has separated himself.”
• Stephen Alexander reports that Kenjon Barner is relishing his new role as the number one running back.
• Patrick Malee catches up with Tacoi Sumler and gauges how he has progressed this spring.
• LaMichael James was selected in the second round of the NFL draft yesterday by the San Francisco 49ers.
• Aaron Jones returned last night after missing the last 8 games and sparked Oregon to a 4-1 win over Cal last night. Jones went 2-for-5 while driving in three runs.
• Ted Miller has a Q&A with Nick Aliotti. Here is just one of the questions.
How about some other spring standouts. Who's impressed you?
Nick Aliotti: [Defensive lineman] Taylor Hart, LB Michael Clay, CB Ifo [Ekpre-Olomu], safety Avery Patterson -- those guys have jumped out at me.
