Monday's Autzen Audibles podcast is loaded with a ton of discussion on Oregon football, football recruiting, Oregon women's and men's basketball, and the recruiting plans for both programs during the spring period.

The Oregon women's basketball program has seen two highly-regarded freshmen players transfer out of the program in guard Holly Winterburn and forward Lucy Cochrane. What players are the men and the women's programs targeting this offseason to get themselves ready for next year? The Duck football team elected to bring in a grad-transfer quarterback in Anthony Brown, and what could that mean for sophomore quarterback Tyler Shough's chances at winning the job. Plus Matt and Erik discuss a near-30 minute conversation they had with Oregon head football coach Mario Cristobal last week about what the Duck football team is up to.

    The Oregon Duck football program has reportedly added a graduate transfer quarterback to the mix ahead of the 2020 football season. What does this mean for Tyler Shough and the quarterback race to replace Justin Herbert?

    Matt Prehm and Erik Skopil are back on the podcast for our regular Mailbag Wednesday, but with a twist. The guys were about to start recording when the news broke that Boston College quarterback Anthony Brown would transfer to Oregon for his final season of college football. Matt and Erk discuss the transfer news as well as answer various questions about Oregon football, football recruiting, and a great question about past athletes we wish had one more season with the Ducks.

    One of the greatest athletes to roll through the University of Oregon is three-sport star Jordan Kent. On Monday's Autzen Audibles Podcast, Matt and Jordan discuss all things Ducks and his career from start to now.


    Jordan Kent played basketball, football, and ran track and field for the Ducks from 2002 to 2006, and capped off his run by being selected in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. 


    After Jordan Kent's playing days were over, he moved into the media field covering the Oregon Ducks and eventually into his current role at NBC Sports Northwest by hosting the pre-game, halftime, post-game, and other Blazer shows on the channel. Jordan also runs the Jordan Kent Skills Camps during the summer months for youth in the Pacific Northwest.

    In this week's Friday Edition of the Autzen Audibles Podcast, we have something different and special for our listeners. Erik Skopil was able to record a podcast with Oregon women's basketball head coach Kelly Graves.

    Erik and Graves talk for over 30 minutes on a wide-ranging list of topics that include the end of the season and if after three weeks he's come to any closure on it, should a team be named the champion for this season, a look at his Big Four's WNBA potential, what Oregon basketball could look like next season, the growth of his returning players and how he sees their roles expanding next season, and some discussion into recruiting and how that is going with social distancing placed into effect.

    All that and more is included in this week's Friday episode of the Autzen Audibles Podcast.

    In Today' Mailbag Wednesday, Matt Prehm and Erik Skopil field Duck fans' questions about Oregon football, basketball, recruiting and what games we've enjoyed covering the most this season.

    The first question stems from Mario Cristobal and his possible contract extension. Should the Ducks be giving him one and where do things stand with those talks? Matt and Erik also debate the popular question of who starts in the slot for Oregon next season. Plus, Oregon football got a newcomer earlier than expected in Logan Sagapolu. How does that impact things?

    On the hardwood, Matt and Erik discuss the likelihood that either the men or the women have two National Player of the Year winners over the next four seasons. Oregon women's basketball player Sabrina Ionescu won the award twice in her four seasons with the Ducks. Matt and Erik also discuss Oregon basketball recruiting for the men and who they are targeting.

    The show wraps up with the best games each of them covered in-person this year.

    The men and women's Oregon basketball programs had two of the best years in recent memory. The women were likely the odds on favorites to win the national title. The men won the Pac-12 Championship outright, had the league's Player of the Year, and were a popular pick as a Final Four dark horse. 


    Then their seasons were over in a blink of an eye as sports around the world shut down.


    Matt Prehm and Erik Skopil of DuckTerritory.com go over the five best moments of each team's historic years and what fans should focus on instead of wondering what if their seasons weren't cut short of the Coronavirus. 


    Matt and Erik also give their thoughts on a few other moments that were under consideration for their Top 5 for the men and the women.

    Monday morning the Oregon Duck football program landed a signature piece to their 2021 recruiting class by getting the verbal commitment of four-star quarterback Ty Thompson.

    The Ducks now have the nation's ninth-best recruiting class for 2021, the Pac-12's top recruiting class, and the program's fifth highest-rated quarterback commitment in program history.

    To break down the full impact of Ty Thompson's verbal commitment to Oregon head football coach Mario Cristobal, and how this could lead to a few more four-star prospects from Arizona going Oregon's way, Matt Prehm and Erik Skopil of DuckTerritory recorded a podcast to discuss it all.
