While other cheerleading units like the Song Girls, the crazy Indianapolis Colts’ cheerleaders, the Jets Flight Crew and others are embargoing their galleries, UO is headed in the opposite direction.

When Canoga Park, Calif., offensive coordinator Kevin Carlsen saw Randy Uzoma run track during Uzoma's freshman year, Carlsen knew the kid had athletic ability. Apparently the Oregon Ducks agree.
Oregon is already facing off against No. 18 Arizona State tonight without star running back LaMichael James, who is recovering from an elbow injury. Now, Chip Kelly’s team is going to have to win without their quarterback, Darron Thomas. In the third quarter of tonight’s game, Thomas was tackled by an ASU defender, awkwardly bending…
