Insect Egg Cases?

Insect Egg Cases?
Opelika, Alabama, USA
November 6, 2004
A friend provided this leaf from a water oak tree layered with what appear to be some type of egg cases. The only other option is some type of a leaf gall or fungal growth. Can anyone provide any insights. Thanks.

Moved from Gall Wasps.

Moved from Galls.

I'd venture that they are galls. Oaks are host to an incredible variety of galls.
