- The reactions have been mixed, but the Ducks' hire of former Michigan coach Brady Hoke as DC shows the team is moving in a new and different direction.
- The Ducks could be getting some good news in recruiting soon as 4-star RB/LB Bear Bisharat announced his commitment from Stanford and his interest in Oregon.
- Another star recruit the Ducks are in the running for, Nigel Knott, a 4-star CB, was to be meeting with coaches on Monday night in Mississippi. This would be a huge get for the 2016 class for Oregon if chooses to go to Eugene.
- With the possibility that Peyton Manning may be co-owner of the Tennessee Titans, QB Marcus Mariota could be getting advice from the future HOF QB.
