Duck Stuff: Morning Mud



• Not that I might be a little prejudice but one of my favorite Duck videos is this one that my son Dave did earlier this year before the BCS game... And just in case you might be getting a little tired of all the negativity surrounding off-season circumstances, just don't forget, all it takes is a little heart. Can I get a little GO DUCKS?!

Rob Moseley is starting his fall camp positional reviews and starts it off by taking a look at the quarterbacks.


One year after a quarterback competition that was too close to call right until the end, there's absolutely no question that Darron Thomas is the man for the Ducks entering 2011.


Also seemingly set in stone is Bryan Bennett's status as the backup. Bennett showed off an impressive set of tools last fall, and became the backup once Costa was hurt, but he was inconsistent in spring drills. Bennett put in a lot of work this summer, and could be in line for a big jump this season. The key will be how he performs in scrimmage scenarios during fall camp, situations in which he struggled during the spring.

• Aaron Fentress reviews the offensive line heading into fall camp.


The Ducks return just two full-time starters, Mark Asper at right tackle and Carson York at left guard. But Darion Weems, a right tackle, is a quasi returning starter given that he has 27 career games under his belt, including 11 last year with seven stars.


Challenging Ramsen Golpashin at right guard will be Nick Cody, a versatile reserve who has appeared in 20 games. That level of experience at guard and tackle will come in handy with a virtual rookie expected to start at center. Karrington Armstrong, a sophomore, is the leading candidate to start there but redshirt freshman Hroniss Grasu also is in the mix. A wildcard that could play in a big way for Oregon is the return of center Hamani Stevens.

GO DUCKS!

So you know, I beat LSU on NCAA 2012...my first complete game...by a score of 50–7, and I went easy on them in the 4th quarter. Yeah. It's coming.
