Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

 Chip Kelly and Jeff Tedford talk with si.coms Maggie Gray in the first two videos regarding recent unsavory news and then on the new Pac-12 conference.

 Colin Cowherd talks with Chip about recruiting in this audio podcast on The Herd.

 Jon Wilner has some additional details regarding the new Pac-12 Network.

 Ted Miller is doing his top 25 Pac-12 player series and the first Oregon player to show up gets the #23 slot, TE David Paulson.

Making the case for Paulson: The 6-foot-4, 241-pound senior earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors in 2010 and -- apologies to Stanford's outstanding troika of TEs -- he's the best tight end in the Pac-12. Not only is he an effective receiver -- see an average of 17.4 yards per reception -- he's also a tenacious blocker. The Pac-12 blog also has a warm spot for good football players who earn academic honors -- Paulson was one of just four players to be first-team All-Pac-10 and first-team Pac-10 All-Academic in 2010. Further, the Ducks are rebuilding at receiver and lack depth behind Paulson. That means it wouldn't be surprising if Paulson doubles his production this fall, which could mean All-American and Mackey Award consideration.

Steve Summers talks with Terrell Turner and Lavasier Tuinei about summer workouts as they wind down in preparation for fall camp.

Enjoyed the Chip/Jeff interviews...classic answers. I am also surprised that Ted says there isn't depth behind Paulson...I know Williams is out, but I still think we're gonna produce from TE behind Paulson...Colt should get lots of quality playing time. Word.
