Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Ken Goe reports that De'Anthony Thomas might not run track and field during the indoor season (it's almost over) but according to track coach Vin Lannana, will most likely be a part of the team during the outdoor season which starts March 18th.

"He's high end," Lananna said. "He's pretty good. I haven't seen him run track yet, but I've seen him run in football. He can run."

Ted Miller notes there are playoff changes being discussed but advises not to hold your breath.

Josh White @FishDuck.com shares his list of the 15 greatest "Oregon" Duck Athletes.

In light of the recent trend of elite in-state athletes deciding to stay home in Oregon for their respective college careers, it is time to take a look back at some of the iconic Ducks from the state of Oregon. Whether they were born here- or in a few cases- they just moved here early on. (Josh starts with Jordan Kent in the #15 spot-click here for the rest of the story)

Aaron Fentress is running a poll to see who fans think will win the QB competition come fall. Bryan Bennett has a comfortable lead, 65% to 16% over Marcus Mariota.

My hunch: There's enough talent here to lead to a fiasco that should provide a superstar starter. This is the first time in a long time - if ever - Oregon has had three or more talented quarterbacks with starting potential. My how far the program has come.

GO DUCKS!

The playoff is coming...it will just start with four teams, but just you wait...eight teams won't be too far behind.
