Jim Leavitt is a great choice to lead the Oregon defense

Jim Leavitt is a great choice to lead the Oregon defense. Under his guidance, the Duck D will get back to where it was under longtime defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti.

Like it or not, there’s nothing anyone can do from Wakeyleaks happening again
