Oregon football recruiting: Haniteli Lousi could add depth and muscle to Duck o-line

As much as the Ducks missed Kiko Alonso and Michael Clay, the offense has missed Kyle Long. His stellar, physical, athletic play at guard is glaringly missing in this year's offense; they haven't had the same consistency without him. Oregon has struggled in pass protection and the running game this season, particularly in the stretch drive, and guard play has been a critical...

Buffalo Bills begin #LegendofKIko with Kiko Alonso

Have you learned of the #LegendofKiko yet? Buffalo Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso is tied for the league lead in interceptions with four and in tackles with 81. Under the radar right? I know I had no idea Kiko Alonso was putting up dominating stats like that either.

Pride of the Webfoots: Can Joltin' Joe Walker put together a hitting streak as Ducks mlb?

Michael Clay, Dion Jordan and Kiko Alonso are now alums. The backbone of a defense that went 46-7 with four trips to the BCS, striking last year for 26 interceptions and 28 sacks, they've moved on to NFL tryouts and the rest of their lives.  That means Nick Aliotti and Don Pellum have to replace the soul and leadership of a superb unit. It also means they have to replace 226...
