Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

 Darron Thomas talks with ESPN's Jay Crawford about what he and the team learned from the loss to Auburn in the video above.

 DT was busy doing interviews at ESPN, you can listen to the audio podcast of DT talking with Ivan Maisel here.

 More on the Cliff Harris incident including possible compliance issues as a U of O employee rented the car Harris was driving when he was cited for speeding.

 Dale Newton continues introducing the class of 2011 as he profiles LB Tyson Coleman and CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. Here is a sneak peek at each profile.

Tyson ColemanTyson Coleman lays wood.  Watch his highlight video and you get a key clue to how tough and physical he is by watching him carry the ball as a tailback.  An inside runner with authority,  when he gets to the second level as a running back, he's looking for someone else to hit.  On defense, he sheds blocks and reads the offensive play well.

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu: A cornerback with an offensive background is often more aggressive when the ball is in the air; they find it easier and tend to react like it belongs to them rather than being passive or careful.  He'll be a ballhawk, the very best kind of corner, a good and aggressive tackler with a little linebacker in him.  His style compares to Jairus Byrd rather than Cliff Harris.

I'm chomping at the bit to know what's gonna happen with Cliff's dumb as*. Can't believe that! DT did a good job though.
