Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
• ESPN's Ivan Maisel looks at the many changes the Pac-12 has made during the off-season as they completely revamped their officiating crew.


Mike Pereira, the conference's interim coordinator of officials, described the work of Pac-10 officials last season as "complacent."


Pereira retired as the NFL vice-president of officiating in 2009 and moved from New York to Sacramento, within driving distance of the Pac-12 office in Walnut Creek, Calif. He has treated the league’s officiating setup as if he were Ty Pennington on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” Basically, he changed everything but the officials’ black and white stripes.


• Andy Mac was one of the lucky 42 people to get an early edition of Phil Steele's annual football preview magazine and he shares which Ducks made the preseason All-Amercian team and All Pac-12 team.
