Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Rob Moseley has your Wednesday practice update and provides the video of DT after practice answering reporters questions.

From a participation standpoint, everybody thought to be relatively healthy was suited up, including Justin Hoffman, Anthony Gildon and Kiko Alonso, none of whom played at Washington. Cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu was not sporting a cast on his right hand when he left the stadium after practice.

Ted Miller believes the Ducks' speed will end Stanford's title hopes.

The Ducks' superior overall team speed still eclipses the brains and physical talents of Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.

• Is Oregon "awed" by Andrew Luck? Not at all.

One of Oregon's many mantras is playing "nameless, faceless opponents." Luck is the most famous college football player in the nation. But for the Ducks, he's just No. 12 behind center.

Former Oregon QB Bill Musgrave talks (audio) with John Canzano about Andrew Luck and the upcoming game.

How will LaMichael James and Andrew Luck perform against each other this year when they meet on the Farm?

Can the "D" have an exceptional game two weeks in a row?

• Will Oregon's offense split the Tree's "D?"

• Dale Newton wonders if the Ducks can be more physical than Stanford.

• Chris Courtney offers up three keys to an Oregon victory.

1. Keep Stanford out of the red zone; 2. Don't get run over; 3. Make the most of your opportunities.

Ken Goe notes that Oregon's punt team is one of it's biggest weapons.

If it's close, Oregon's ability to create a field position advantage with the combination of punter Jackson Rice's big leg and the punt team's ability to cover get under the kick, could prove decisive.

"It's helping us win," Chip Kelly said.

Reading all of this...and thinking about this game...I realized, I don't miss Cliff.
