Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
 Jon Wilner assesses the options available to Pac-12 commish Larry Scott when it comes to the Pac-12 TV Network and fits them into three categories.

Model one would partner with and existing provider to re-brand an existing channel. Model two would partner with an existing cable or satellite operator to develop a new channel. Model three would partner with Google or Apple to deliver a streaming service via the internet and perhaps YouTube, Google TV or Apple TV. Most of the comments agree that it will likely be a combination of two of the choices. Interesting read so be sure to check it out.

 Ted Miller has another preseason position review as he looks at tight ends. He fits Oregon into the "great shape" category right behind Stanford.

David Paulson was first-team All-Pac-12 after catching 24 passes for 418 yards with four touchdowns in 2010. He's also a good blocker. Backup Brandon Williams is an impressive specimen who figures to contribute more this fall -- unless touted true freshman Colt Lyerla eclipses him.

 Ted Miller has a poll wanting to know who you think is the most likely to regress in 2011. He gives you five choices; Arizona, Oregon, Stanford, USC or Washington. As of this posting Stanford was winning with 27% of the votes. Oregon ranked 4th with 19%.

 Bob Rickert has the second part of his Q&A with former Duck QB A.J. Feeley.

 Dale Newton introduces incoming freshmen OL Tyler Johnstone. 6'6", 250lbs. with a 4.93 forty out of Hamilton HS in Chandler, AZ.

Tyler Johnstone is very much in touch with his inner Brian Urlacher.  He brings a linebacker's intensity and aggression to the offensive line, and it's impressive to watch.  He has great drive as a football player, a guy who competes hard on every play.  It's clear he wants to win, and understands winning means winning the confrontation in front of you. Part of the reason he plays in such a focused, intelligent way is that he's also a 4.0 student.

Virtually, e only thing we can do is regress. No bueno.
