Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• A little John Boyett video I put together yesterday that covers his best plays from 2010.
• George Schroeder reports the U of O Athletic Department is looking to hire an individual with a unique skill-set.
To sum up, Oregon is looking for an ex-cop with jujitsu skills who is computer savvy and likes to read to first-graders (or at least, to get athletes reading to first-graders).
• Adam Jude notes that Darron Thomas is counting down the days to fall camp as he has limited time to get the incoming freshman up to speed.
Thomas said he’s been working out in smaller groups with new receivers Tacoi Sumler, Devon Blackmon and Rahsaan Vaughn, and freshmen running backs De’Anthony Thomas and Tra Carson. (Another new arrival, freshman tight end Christian French, has caught the quarterback's eye, too. He joins freshman Colt Lyerla, who arrived in the spring, as young tight ends hoping to get in the mix this fall.)
• Dale Newton has a nice profile story on incoming JC transfer WR Rahsaan Vaughn. 6'2", 192lbs, out of College of San Mateo in California.
A high-volume receiver, a workhouse who could achieve Maehl-like productivity once he acclimates and if he conforms. He's almost identical in size to Jeff, but with more natural ability and a notch faster.
