- SBNation takes a look at the next MM, Morgan Mahalak. With the same initials as Marcus Mariota, he's going to have some pretty unfair expectations when he hits campus. But he has the talent to at least come close to those expectations.
- This is a few days old, but I can't resit, I'm just too excited about Royce Freeman. Oregon has been stockpiling an absolutely stupid amount of talent at RB, and Royce is expected to be the latest in a long line of prolific Oregon RBs. At 6' 227 pounds, he'll bring a bit of power that we haven't seen in a few years, while still keeping the agility we've come to expect from the backfield.
- Oregon's most recent commit, Charles Nelson, brings more speed to Eugene. "Only" a three-star, in large part due to an ACL injury he suffered his junior year, he was still highly sought after by USC, Florida, and many other schools. Here's more from the Daytona Beach paper on his commitment.
- A bit of good/bad news. Arik Armstead will no longer be part of the basketball team, but will instead focus on football. While this will hopefully lead to increase production in the fall, it ends any hope the basketball had of getting any immediate help inside.
- Hayward Field has been getting pretty much every major domestic track meet, which has led to some criticism. Ken Goe takes on that criticism in a post from yesterday.
- I don't know what to make of the "Phil it UP" campaign for Saturday night's game against USC. Is a Phil Knight bobblehead probably overdoing it? Yep. But I do love me some terrible puns.
