Venables talks about the past week

Brent Venables joined Sports Talk 1400 this morning to talk about his decision to leave for Clemson.

Venables says that the toughest part of the decision was leaving behind the relationships he had formed with players, coaches and the community during his time in Norman.

Clemson has landed a defensive mind who's extensive resume includes five defensive Big 12 players of the year and two Butkus award winners.

The radio interview below gives good insight from Venables about how the process played out over the past week.

Chip Kelly busy sending care packages

Chip Kelly has made a habit of sending former players surprise care packages filled with Oregon gear throughout the season.

"A few weeks ago I got an Oregon sweatshirt with my college number on it. Just a 'Thank you,' for what we've done for the program and how we carry ourselves in the league." linebacker Spencer Paysinger said of the care packages.

He admits that when he wears his Duck gear around the locker room his teammates joke that "Uncle Phil (Knight)" must have sent the gear over.

This weekend, each NFL playoff team has at least one former Duck on the roster...and you can bet they're getting a care package. Nice move by Chip and the staff. 

Wisconsin's new offensive coordinator

New Wisconsin offensive coordinator Matt Canada met with the media last night to field some questions.

Canada compares the job at Northern Illinois to the job that Barry Alvarez began with at Wisconsin in terms of the players that they had on the roster and where they were able to recruit.

When asked about his offensive philosophy, Canada kept it simple saying "score points". Can't get much simpler than that.

Both Wisconsin and Northern Illinois were among five teams to average at least 230 yards per game rushing and passing last season.
