Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Rob Moseley and Lindsay Schnell have your Wednesday practice update and Rob supplies the video of DT answering questions after practice.

Rob: Overall, Kelly said the Ducks have bounced back well since Saturday's loss to USC.

"They've been good," Kelly said. "They've been really, really good. ... It goes one of two ways: You either feel sorry for yourself or you get mad and say, 'Hey, this is what we gotta do.' That's really the approach they've taken."

Lindsay: Rain, wind and cold weather drove the Oregon Ducks football team into the Moshofsky Center for the second consecutive day for practice, and coach Chip Kelly joked that after checking the weather on news channel KEZI 9 in Eugene and finding a wrong report, the Ducks have been getting their weather news from the internet, instead. 

"We're done with KEZI," Kelly deadpanned.

• Lucas Clark reports that Oregon will try to make it four in a row against the struggling beavs.

Oregon’s 14 seniors will look to stay undefeated in their four career matchups with in-state rival Oregon State when the Ducks host the Beavers in Autzen Stadium at 12:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

• Patrick Malee says the Oregon secondary will face another challenge with the OSU receiving corps.

• David Lieberman notes that DT Taylor Hart brings diligence to Oregon's D.

When it comes to football in the state of Oregon, there’s no bigger game than the Civil War. Taylor Hart knows this. In fact, he probably understands the rivalry more than anyone on the team. After all, the Tualatin native will likely be the only Oregonian to grace the starting lineup for the Ducks come Saturday.

Lucas Clark sits down with Chad Delaney and talks Civil War week.

• Civil War thought of the day: Why don't OSU football players count sheep to fall asleep at night? They have other plans for their four legged friends.

Kim Hastings at opens the history book and thinks the '94 Civil War contest is one of the great moments for longtime Duck football fans.

• Here come the predictions already and Ted Miller believes it will be another Oregon victory.

Oregon 44, Oregon State 20: The Beavers will fight, but midway through the third quarter the Ducks will assert themselves. Calling for a big afternoon from LaMichael James.
