    I would have loved to heard his perspective on De’anthony coming to oregon, it seems like they had a very similar recruiting process being so cal natives, and playing RB in high school and being recruited by other schools as a DB. Im glad that oregon had become the place to go for kids who would just rather play offense because it seems they turn out pretty well.

      Thanks for listening.  The conversation with patrick went upwards of an hour and I had to whittle down a bit to the good stuff, but one thing that was interesting that was on the cutting room floor is Patrick’s perspective of the pro set offense Oregon used to run vs. the spread now, and the concerns over whether or not it develops guys for the next level.
      As you heard Patrick talked about how Oregon prepped him for the NFL, but there is concern if the spread doesn’t prepare guys for the NFL pro set.  I think Jeff Maehl, DJ Davis, and Ed Dickson all being on NFL rosters right now would argue otherwise, but it makes for an interesting conversation.

    I enjoyed the interview but I found the quiet music in the background pretty distracting.

      Thank you, I will be more conscious of that for future episodes.
      Thanks for listening!

      My goodness.  I didn’t even notice the background music until this was pointed out.   But I really enjoyed the interview.  It would be nice to have a full and edited highlight version of this… but I’m not complaining.
