Mario Cristobal drinks raw eggs like Rocky Balboa with Oregon recruit


The Oregon Ducks are making some moves on the recruiting trail under first-year Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal. To celebrate one recent commitment, Cristobal joined his newest commit in downing a glass of raw eggs, Rocky Balboa style.

Oregon picked up the commitment of Cale Millen over the weekend. Millen, a three-star pro-style quarterback from the state of Washington in the Class of 2019 according to his profile on Rivals, previously committed to Northwestern but later de-committed and focused his attention a bit closer to the west coast. Oregon was among those Millen had interest in, and Arizona State was another. Millen also had an offer previously extended by UCLA prior to the firing of Jim Mora and hiring of Chip Kelly. To celebrate the news during a visit at Oregon, Millen and Cristobal celebrated over a glass of raw eggs.

Of course, a regular diet of a glass of eggs was a staple of Rocky Balboa in the film, “Rocky.”

While Cristobal downed his glass without any issue, Millen had to hold his nose to pull off the feat. Hey, whatever works! Good to see some diets advice never goes out of style.
