Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Ted Miller continues his preseason position reviews for the Pac-10 and has Oregon on top for the running back category.
While the Pac-10 blog rates Oregon State's Jacquizz Rodgers ahead of LaMichael James (I think not Ted, see video) as an individual player, the Ducks have a decided edge in depth, and not only because James' backup, Kenjon Barner, is one of the conference's most explosive players. The incoming recruiting class also features Lache Seastrunk and Dontae Williams, the No. 6 and No. 13 prep running backs in the nation in 2009.
• Most of the preseason Bowl predictions that I have seen that involve the Ducks repeating in the Rose Bowl have Oregon going up against Iowa.Andy Gardiner and Sam Aleinikoff, from USA TODAY break that mold by choosing Oregon going up against TCU in the Granddaddy of them all.
• Ted Miller features Oregon in his best case-worst case scenarios. An entertaining look at what could happen for the Ducks in the upcoming season. Hilarious closing statement in the worst case scenario. A must read story.
