    Probably sees himself as the next Dennard Robinson, since RichRod is the coach.

    Only Shaq ended up at UW. Castro went to UCLA and Harper went to Arizona.

    Transferring in-conference almost never happens in the PAC-12.

    The problem with Harper at QB is that I assume he was just fine at the High School level, but at the college level I question he passing ability. I would imagine he is fairly one dimensional which never works in College, and works even less with anemic running games such as Arizona's. It is actually what worries me most about the Ducks next year, is Bennent going to be to put enough pressure on the D with his arm so teams don't stack the box. With Harper at QB teams are just going to sit on the run game and blitz the hell out of him.

    USC and Stanford had good recruiting classes. USC amazes me, for being on probation and losing scholarships they still kicked ass. Stanford and USC both got great linemen and skilled position players for years. USC went into FLorida and stole two of their best prospects... The Ducks need to start making relationships there in a hurry. I must say I'm a bit surprised anyone would play for Lamo Kiffen from the SEC area being the kind of morally absent shell of a human being he was at Tennessee.... guess his daddy really is that good.

    That said I can't wait to beat the hell out of USC and Barkley next year since they've already been handed the Pac-12 title by sportswriters and pollsters...

    Is Kiffin really that bad? He's okay as a coach or is it just Barkley? Their D reminds me of SEC-defenses.

    You ask any person about Lamo Kiffin from my part of the country and they'll politely walk away from you with Utter Disgust! Lamo would sell his mom for a 290 5* DT! Further he burned a well respected program at Tennessee and he got on the shit list of every coach of worth in the SEC. He called out Urban Meyer for recruiting issues which Lamo made up, talked shit on Spurrier and said Saban was overrated! All in his first year while going barely 500! Yea this guy is all class, then he bolts for LA as fast as he could to take over Carols recruits.... The fact is this the Pac-12 south was a joke last year.. it wont be better next year and USC only has to beat us "TWICE" to go to the national championship. Lamo has a great QB, two great recievers, a stable of 5* recruits and the tradition of USC behind him + home field against us... So why am I so confident he'll fail? Lamo still lacks any trace of moral and ethical conviction or any resemblance of manhood and that's why he'll come up short! Norm Chow isn't there to teach him how to coach this time, and his daddy is getting old. Many think they hired Lamo as a tampon to cover the bleeding of the probation just long enough for Carroll to serve the necessary time in the NFL and return. One more year with the Seachickens and Pete will be back where he belongs and USC will be fully stocked for him to lead them again!

    The class isn't quite done yet. Brooks looks likely to commit after visiting this weekend.

    How many scholarships are left? Chip made it sound like there were still a couple to be given to the right guys......

    I've never known this to happen but can a recruit still pull out after he signed letter of intent?

    Interested to know how many guys say the next day..... "Did I make a mistake?"

    Probably not I believe.

    I see. Well the years he's been at USC proves he's a good coach, ethics notwithstanding. I'm not saying he's a good person, but a good coach. And besides, most SEC coaches would sacrifice their firstborn child for a 5* recruit. Saban is the exact same way.

    And Carroll is improving in NFL, and remember he made a gamble with Barkley as True Freshman(flunked at first, but starting to pay off) and he got a bad record, not to mention the whole fiasco with Reggie Bush and them losing their championship.

    Also, will their be any SEC teams that come to play at Autzen at all?

    Tennesee is scheduled to come here in a couple years I believe. There was a home and home scheduled with Georgia also, but they backed out right around after Oregon pummeled Tennessee in Knocksville

    Those first two cupcake games will be a great way to see who our starting QB should be + to iron out some timing issues between our recievers, line and so forth... I imagine this will be a good burn for guys who haven't seen very much PT to shine. Our starters should be done by half time.....
