Moseley morning and afternoon: Lache Seastrunk got a lot of action too and busted off a couple of nice runs using his speed and agility. “He’s gotten better every day, and today was his best day,” Kelly said. “Hopefully he can continue to build off of that.”
Courtney morning and afternoon: Today was one of Darron Thomas' finer days...Thomas' poise and field awareness was on full display, as he targeted wide receiver Jeff Maehl, Lavasier Tuinei, and Blake Cantu with great effectiveness. His ability running the ball was impressive as well; showing great decision making ability and quickness employing the Ducks' vaunted spread option attack.
• John Hunt liked what he saw with Lache Seastrunk yesterday as LMJ and Kenjon Barner took it easy while they recuperate from injuries.
During that afternoon session, Seastrunk showed that, when he knows the play and he trusts his blocking, he can indeed outrun people.
“He has the physical skills to play – he just has to understand what we’re doing and how we call things,’’ Oregon coach Chip Kelly said. “He’s gotten better every day, and today was his best day.’’
Hunt also discusses the QB race in this post, saying that both Costa and Thomas look better this week.
• GoDucks.com announced that Fan Day will be August 28th. The 2010-11 Spirit T-shirt slogan at 11:00am in front of the Moshofsky Center Duck Store followed by the doors opening to the Mo Center where there will be numerous activities for the kids.
• Rivals has Oregon at #4 in their preseason poll.
Oregon appears to have the components to post a double-digit victory total for the third consecutive season and for the fourth time in six seasons. If everything works out right, the Ducks could challenge for the national title.
Nothing like a good dose of optimism to get your Tuesday morning going.
