Steve Dykes/Getty ImagesChip Kelly has flirted with the NFL, but it hasn't hurt Oregon's recruiting.
When you have one of the nation's most exciting offenses, top-notch facilities and fashion-forward uniforms, other programs have to combat those advantages. For those programs competing for recruits with the Oregon Ducks, it even means negative recruiting against a team that will appear in its fourth straight BCS bowl next month.
In the past, programs have used Oregon's high-flying offense against them by telling offensive linemen that the zone-blocking scheme and the up-tempo pace won't be as fun or rewarding to play in. They have told wide receiver recruits that they will block more than they will catch the ball.
Joe Tessitore discusses the latest Heismanology poll, which has Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott in the lead followed by Oregon QB Marcus Mariota and Notre Dame QB Everett Golson, who jumped up to third after his performance in the loss to Florida State.
