Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Dave Curtis and Matt Hayes over at The Sporting News rank the Pac-10 QB's and have Costa at 4th and 5th respectively. And Hayes takes it step further with this bold prediction.

The Ducks will win the Pac-10 because coach Chip Kelly will find the right combination of Costa and backup Darron Thomas in specific sets to get enough from the position.

The Heisman Pundit notes that the last three Heisman winners have been sophomores. Which sophomores have the best chance in the 2010-11 season?

Second year players who have already established themselves as stars in college football thanks to outstanding freshman seasons.

In this group, I’d include the following players:

    * Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech
    * Dion Lewis, Pittsburgh
    * LaMichael James, Oregon
    * Andrew Luck, Stanford

Andy Mac reports that Oregon has added 5 more nationally televised games to the schedule for 2010. Here is the list which incldues the previously announced UCLA game. All times are Pacific.

    * Sept. 11 at Tennessee, ESPN2, 4 p.m.
    * Sept. 25 at Arizona State, FSN, 7:30 p.m.
    * Oct. 2 vs. Stanford, ESPN, 8:15 p.m.
    * Oct. 21 vs. UCLA, ESPN, 6 p.m.
    * Oct. 30 at USC, ABC, 5 p.m.
    * Nov. 26 vs. Arizona, ESPN, 4 p.m.

One good thing about our rise nationally is that we don't have to stress on getting to see games any longer.
