Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Oregon moved up in all the polls jumping to #4 in the AP and coaches along with a #4 ranking in the BCS.

At least one Duck admitted that a rematch with LSU would be sweet.

• At least one Trojan has thrown down the gauntlet so to speak. Matt Barkley doesn't think our current group of players is as good as years past..

Ted Miller has his weekly post "what we learned" ready and mentions Chip.

The Evil Genius of Chip Kelly still rules: Things set up well for Stanford. It was the unbeaten team in the national title chase. It was playing at home. It had Andrew Luck. But Oregon still has Chip Kelly. And he and defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti -- let's not forget the old guy -- know how to get their team ready to play. And to scheme up an opponent. Oregon seemed to have an answer for everything Stanford did. And a way to exploit all of the Cardinal's weaknesses. Bottom line: The Ducks appear headed for their third consecutive Pac-12 championship after a 53-30 victory.

• Ted Miller also points out that the Oregon "D" doesn't get enough credit, gives his reaction to the new poll standings and does his weekly bowl projections.

Adam Jude has some thoughts on the Ducks newest rankings.

• Rob Moseley has some great links from pundits around the country and their impressions of Oregon's big win.

The elite of college football's chattering class was in the press box, and offered no shortage of reaction to the Ducks' win over the Cardinal.

Start with our own George Schroeder, who put the Ducks at No. 3 on his Harris Poll ballot, back in the thick of the BCS discussion.

Solid Verbal hosts Ty and Dan talk about this past weekends biggest games. The Oregon portion is at 9:30.

Dale Newton grades the game against Stanford.

It was the most complete team victory and focused effort since last week.

Lucas Clark opens his notebook and shares some final thoughts on the Stanford game.

With 13 touchdowns this season, true freshman De’Anthony Thomas has the most scores among all true freshmen in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Barkley is such a douche.
