Ok so what about Armond... has that situation been worked out yet?
Is Phil Knight standing off to the side with one of those Giant, cardboard, check facsimiles?

Hmmm and the day gets better....
@DanGreenspan reports that Arik Armstead enrolls at Oregon in March.
I am just looking at the B&G feb issue we had 17 comitts now have 17 comitts..two gone ..two gained...of the 17 possible got only one ..now down to only 3 maybe 4 possibilities...and there is no greater than 50% chance on any of them...going to end up with less than 85 ...just like a sanctioned team...this is a good class but totally unacceptable due to the let go of some and the rolling of the dice on some long shots and not getting at least 20 ...want to hear BK spin this
Okay I have a friend I went to high school with who currently plays for Oregon (Trevor Fox) talked to him via facebook today right after Ariks commitment and this is what he told me:
want to hear something funny
morning of signing day all our coaches lock us in the indoor field and condition us to death
and they aren't anywhere near the fax machine
coach kelly says he doesn't care who signs lol
"because the guys who will win next year are already here"
Just thought I would share something from an actual player not that the reporters don't do a great job.
Sounds like he kind of cocky,"in case I don't make it to the NFL or the NBA" I don't know but IMO Notre Dame academically would be a more sound choice to me, I guess I should say good luck to the young lad and be done with it

I was on the fence about this guy. He is a major talent, but it seemed that if the coaches wanted to switch him to offense, he wouldn't have done so quietly. Just with all the drama that came with his recruitment. Then they said something about Chip Kelly's trustworthiness? Didn't this guy just go into contract talks with the NFL without saying anything to anybody? Whose to say that he doesn't go do the same thing next year. And, is Oregon basketball any good? Can't say I have really heard anything about their bball team, but then again, I really don't follow PAC 12 sports. I thought I also heard something about an investigation into Oregon football. Any truth to those rumors? Oh well.
I am pretty happy with this class. Ranked pretty high considering we have about 6-8 less recruits than most other schools. Could have used another DB, but we aren't done yet. Still possible to get nobody, or possible to get Darby and Poole. We really don't know. I just hope the guys we have on the current roster take this chance to step up and make a name for themselves. Hopefully with more training, and their new coach, they can figure out the correct way to play CB. I am ready for the season, and I wish the team luck and hope everyone stays healthy.
