Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Kenjon Barner, John Boyett and David Paulson talk about summer workouts, teaching the incoming freshman and are getting excited for fall camp. Video courtesy of KVAL.
• Ted Miller calls the Oregon vs Stanford game on Nov. 12 the biggest game in the new Pac-12 North Division.
So as the offseason churns toward the 2011 campaign, it's impossible not to see the rematch in Palo Alto as not only the impact game of the year in the first iteration of the Pac-12 North Division, but also the game of the year in the entire conference. And it might even become the game of the year nationally.
• Cliff Harris has been named to the Bronko Nagurski watch list. The winner is judged to be college football's best defensive player.
• Dale Newton would like you to meet incoming freshman Tacoi Sumler and De'Anthony Thomas. Here is a little sample of each article Dale posted.
Tacoi Sumler: What's even more impressive about Sumler is that he's a very polished, finished receiver. His father Tommy was a youth coach in South Florida for 30 years, for the Florida City Razorbacks, and he's given Tacoi a tremendous foundation in the game. He runs precise patterns, cuts at full speed, catches the ball at its highest point, runs extremely well after the catch.
De'Anthony Thomas: Thomas is an explosive wonder on the football field. Rahim Moore, an All-American safety who starred first at rival Dorsey High and then at UCLA, told Shelburne, "Everything you've heard is true," he said. "He's probably the best player to come out of the city, ever. He's probably the best athlete, in any sport, to come out of Crenshaw, ever." Running and passing, he averaged a touchdown one out of every six times he touched the ball. He's small, but extraordinarily elusive and fast, with the fastest 200 meter time of any high schooler in the country last year, 20.61 seconds. He's been clocked at 4.4 seconds in the 40, 10.57 in the 100, the Los Angeles City Champion.
