Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley and Lindsay Schnell have your Tuesday practice update.

Rob: UO coach Chip Kelly said it "was a good Tuesday," with the usual schedule for that day of the week calling for three 11-on-11 team periods, red-zone work, third-down passing situations and special teams work along with positional drills. 

The one alteration to the normal weekly practice schedule this week is that Oregon won't have a walk-through Thursday, but will hold another full-go, full-pads practice.

Lindsay: Junior safety Eddie Pleasant said that despite five days off, the Ducks haven't missed a beat with conditioning.

"This is the biggest game of our lives," Pleasant said. "Even though we went on vacation, we took it upon ourselves to run at home."


The Oregonian and the Register Guard offer articles related to the world of differences between Auburn, Alabama and Eugene, Oregon.

BCS title game ticket scams are out there so be careful. One Medford fan found out the hard way.

The Oregonian would like you to meet their "Duck Fan of the Day," Curtis Nordstrom.

Former head coach Mike Bellotti offers some words of advice on facing Cam Newton.

Dale Newton at The Duck Stops Here has a very well written article on the three most overstated factors of the National Championship Game.

The Oregonian, along with the Mobile Press-Register compare QB's today in their continuing series on the different match-ups.

Consistency has led Oregon to a 12-0 record, don't expect too much to be different in the NC game.

Oregon's frenetic pace can even take a toll on our players. The difference is, they have learned how to play through the fatigue.

Lindsay Schnell takes an indepth look at Casey Matthews.

"He's very football heady, does a good job of making plays and it's easy to co-exist with him as a teammate because he's not an arrogant type of guy," said linebackers coach Don Pellum. "When you're like that, you become a magnet figure."

GO DUCKS!
