Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

It seems that LSU is looking to fill an open spot on their schedule for 2011 with a high profile game at a neutral site. Could it be Oregon? According to this LSU blog (link courtesy of Rob Moseley) it is a possibility that makes sense.

LSU Associate Athletic Director Verge Ausberry said last week that LSU is in final-stage negotiations with a handful of potential foes for the 2011 season opener on Sept. 3 and said it’s possible the Tigers could wind up in another high-profile intersectional neutral-site game.

Cowboys Stadium, the 80,000-seat state-of-the-art home of the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas, as the most likely site for a 2011 neutral-site game.

The Ducks need to replace a game because right now their 2011 schedule includes a road game at Utah, which will now be a league game.

Oregon is scheduled to begin the 2011 season with a home game against Kansas State, but Wildcats coach Bill Snyder said this week he would like to adjust his program’s schedule to include mostly non-conference home games.

Other teams are mentioned of course but wouldn't that be some kind of exposure?

Ted Miller finished his top 25 players of the Pac-10 Tuesday with Jacquizz Rodgers but wanted to include 6 players who almost made it and Spencer Paysinger is on that list.

His numbers are as good as Casey Matthews(#24.) Maybe better. Felt like I flipped a coin between them.
