Oregon recruits react to Stanford loss 

November, 19, 2012
It was senior day in Eugene on Saturday when the Ducks hosted the Stanford Cardinal. A day that was supposed to be the statement game in a season full of resounding wins for a team on its way to a second BCS National Championship Game in three years. With ESPN's College GameDay in town, it was a big showcase for Oregon to show the nation it was the favorite to become the first non-SEC team to win the national championship in seven years.

There were a handful of recruits on hand -- including a Stanford commit -- to watch what was supposed to be the moment that helped the Ducks solidify their place among the top programs in the country. The Ducks had momentum on the field and on the recruiting trail going into the weekend. After a tough overtime loss, some Oregon fans may feel like the sky is falling, but that isn't necessarily so.

Despite the loss to Stanford, the Ducks are still likely in control of their own destiny for a BCS bowl berth. While the loss put a damper on things for fans, it didn't seem to dampen the spirits of Oregon's recruits. DuckNation caught up with some of the Ducks' commits -- and targets -- to get their thoughts on the game.
