Well, the spring game is over, and with that, we are at the midway point of the college football offseason. And the next 4 months will be torture. It will be 3 long months until fall camp starts.
- If you missed it, make sure to check out all the spring game thoughts by dvieira and JConant.
- Ken Woody continues his excellent work by summing up spring practices. Importantly, Woody talks about Chip Kelly as the new head coach, and how he has taken a page from Pete Carroll and encouraged competition. A good example of this was having the first teams play against each other in the spring game, which hasn't always been the case. Kelly has done very well so far, but won't really be tested until September 3rd.
- Moseley has an article on the Helfrich hire and the offense in general. Kelly didn't have a desire to have anyone with spread experience, as he wanted someone to bring something different to the program, and I like that very much. Also, the article mentions that Kelly intends to call plays next season. Lastly, Greatwood comments on his new position, which won't be that much different. His job will be to organize the running game, and present his opinions to who calls the plays.
- In spring game news, Moseley has the game story, while Schroeder has a piece on Masoli. Also, the RG has a short positional recap.
- Lastly, while Oregon baseball was able to win a game on Friday, they dropped the series overall, falling on Saturday and then on Sunday, with the bullpen blowing up in the 7th.
