Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Marty James at the Napa Valley Register interviews John Boyett in the video above and files this report as the Oregon safety visits his former elementary school and lends a hand during their annual "field day." Good stuff.
• Mitch Coffman has a quick analysis of QB Darron Thomas and includes my highlight video of DT as a bonus.
Although the Ducks garner most of their attention from the running game, and rightfully so, Thomas is the glue that holds the offense together. What Dixon did well, Masoli did a little better, and Thomas does very well. He can run, he can pass. And not just respectfully so. In Oregon’s hustle offense, on nearly any play, he is a threat to throw or run for a touchdown.
• Matt Daddy at ATQ has a little one-on-one debate with Rob Moseley on the role of the media in sports. Long, but a good read.
• Dale Newton does a Q&A with LSU blogger Bob Wynn on one of the most hyped games to open a season that I can remember. Another good piece by Dale.
