National Signing Day is, by now, a distant memory.  We silently fist-pumped (probably at work) as preps across the nation used something called a “facks machine” for the first (and probably last) time to send their NLIs to Eugene.  We looked over the tremendous haul of new Ducks recruits, nodded in approval, and said things like, “THAT KID IS A …
