Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
 Ted Miller is down to his final four in the group of top 25 Pac-10 players from last year and Darron Thomas graces the number four spot.

Thomas isn't ranked way up here merely because he was the quarterback of record as a first-year starter for the Pac-10 champions. He's here because his numbers earned him this spot. Honestly, you really don't have to go much further than 35 total touchdowns. Not to cause a problem or anything, but do you know how many TDs Washington scored in 2010? That's right: 35. Heck, Oregon State scored 39.

 Rob Moseley previews the wide receivers going into spring practice.

With Jeff Maehl and D.J. Davis having graduated, the leaders at the position are now Lavasier Tuinei and Josh Huff. Both were nice complementary players for the Oregon offense last fall who face the challenge of developing into the go-to wideouts for the Ducks in 2011.

 The Pac-10 decided to make this video which debuts the new Pac-12 logo. Not a huge change.

 Dale Newton says the "2011 Ducks may be the greatest show on turf."

Chip Kelly has been laying in the weeds...He's a fiercely competitive guy.  Coming close and losing  burns at his soul. The Ducks will play offense with an edge in 2011, and the results will be Hall of Fame memorable.

 Jovean Catron led the Ducks to victory last night as Oregon took down Weber St. 68-59. Oregon will meet Duquesne in the quarterfinals which happens Monday night at 7 p.m. at Matthew Knight Arena.

Last but not least, everyone here would like to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day. A real shocker, I know, but I have decided to do something different and wear green today.
