Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Rob Moseley shares a feature story that appeared in the R-G yesterday, "Still a mystery who'll be QB."

At the onset of spring, Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich seemed open to the idea of settling on a starting quarterback this month. But with four practices left, including the spring game, that seems increasingly unlikely.

“It really doesn’t matter now,” Helfrich said. “It’s practice 11 of spring ball, and there are something like 29 practices in fall camp. If it ends this spring neck-and-neck, great. Let’s see who wants to compete during the summer and take a leadership role, get everybody better, all the things the position needs to do.” and Chris Geraghty report on former Oregon basketball player Aaron Brooks.

Oregon basketball standout Aaron Brooks received the NBA's Most Improved Player Award presented by Kia Motors the league office announced Thursday. Brooks, an All-American guard for the Ducks during the 2006-07 season, received 403 of a possible 615 points, including 62 first-place votes. Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder (17 first-place votes) and George Hill of the San Antonio Spurs (seven first-place votes) tied for second with 101 points.

Former Oregon greats, Dan Fouts and Ahmad Rashad will serve as honorary coaches next Saturday for the Spring Game. The game will telecast live nationally on ESPN2, with the telecast crew expected to include Chris Fowler, Craig James, Wendi Nix  and Ed Cunningham.

Should be fun, don't miss it.
