Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
George Schroeder looks at the scene later this morning as GameDay makes their first appearance at Palo Alto and of course the talk will be all about Stanford.

Yeah, we’ve seen the story line before. Back when it was about Oregon. Now, it’s not.

But if the Ducks don’t like the story line, or the second billing, the remedy is pretty simple. Just win.

Boseko Lokombo relies on instincts and athleticism to make all the right plays. Lucas Clark has the story.

Chalk it up to preparation or just his pure football talent.

“I think it’s a mixture of both,” says fellow junior linebacker Michael Clay, Lokombo’s roommate freshman year. “Bo knows what he’s doing, so he’s gonna be in the right position. At the same time, he’s a freak of an athlete, and he just finds ways to make plays.”

Speaking of Michael Clay, it will be a homecoming of sorts as he is a San Jose native.

• Will De'Anthony be a key to the game? Ted Miller thinks it is a possibility.

David Lieberman notes the turnover margin will be a crucial key.

• Patrick Malee believes that Stanford and Oregon are on a collision course, buckle up everyone.

• LMJ was named a Doak Walker semifinalist and Jackson Rice was named a Ray Guy semifinalist yesterday.

• Nick Aliotti sat down with John Canzano for a little Q&A session (audio link provided.)

Aaron Fentress reports that Aliotti believes the Ducks defense will be ready for Stanford's run game.

Dale Newton answers five burning questions for the Crystal Ball Run.

• Time for predictions. Patrick Malee and Stanford Daily writer Jack Blanchat both pick the Ducks. Rob Moseley likes the Ducks by 10 and I pick the Ducks over the Tree, 45-21.
