Apparently Wednesday is the most bountiful quack day during the offseason. Who knew?
- Aaron Fentress previews the wide receiver position for the Ducks. Fentress raises many of the questions most of us have been asking since January 3rd: Will Josh Huff or Rahsaan Vaughn take a step forward? Will one of the touted freshman be ready to be a difference maker, including making blocks on the edge? The Ducks appear to have the talent, but will it manifest itself on the field this fall?
- Ted Miller has a video post offering support his selection of Lavasier Tuinei as the biggest shoes for Oregon to fill next season. Miller also blogged about the idea of Chris Petersen succeeding Chip Kelly if he were to leave.
