It's friday! Time for another college football weekend! Here's your quack:
- There have been rumblings over the past few days, but Greg Biggins now confirms that 3-star LB Kyrie Wilson has committed to Oregon. Wilson has flown under the radar a bit, despite having a solid performance at the SoCal Nike Camp, and earning all-area honors.
- In other recruiting news, 2010 Oregon commit Troy Hill has finally been cleared by the NCAA to enroll at Oregon. With school starting soon, this is just in time that he'll be officially part of the 2010 class, though he likely won't see any playing time this year. Hill was one of the players in the 2010 class I was most excited about, so I'm glad that the NCAA was able to work out his academic issues.
- Adam Jude has an article on senior CB Chad Peppars, who earned a scholarship for his final year as a Duck. Peppars has had an interesting career as a Duck. He lost his eligibility in 2008, and left the team for a few weeks before being allowed back, but he had to work his way up from the scout team. It's a great story, so make sure to check it out.
- The Michael Dunigan saga rolls on and the Oregonian caught up with Dunigan's agent, but he doesn't shed a lot of light on the eligibility situation. The best part of the article: it ends with Dunigan getting compared to another player nicknamed "Greedy."
- We're getting really close to the opening of Matt Court. GoDucks.com has some pictures of the scoreboard going up. Also, the tunnel from the Cas Center to Autzen has been spruced up a bit.
- What's that? Oregon's playing a football game tomorrow? Maybe I shouldn't be so cavalier, as Oregon will be facing the pistol offense, which it has not yet seen. Oregon will have to play disciplined defense, and not take anything for granted. With Chip Kelly in charge, I'm sure they'll do just that.
Rob Moseley has an update from yesterdays practice, and it sounds like the team is still staying pretty healthy. Also, Kiko Alonso is coming back from his ACL injury, though he will not be suiting up this year due to his suspension. Also, Darron Thomas did an interview with 1080AM.
