Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
• What do you do if you are a small college in need of a football team? If you're Lander College for Men you adopt the Ducks. (link courtesy of an Andy Mac tweet)...

As the football season ends and the college recruiting begins, we must pay due to the Lander College for men football team. Well, Lander College for Men doesn’t actually have an official football team, but I have worked long and hard to mold these men into loyal Ducks fans. I believe I have been fairly successful. As a University of Oregon graduate, you understand I had to… so now there are 300 Jewish kids in Queens rooting for the University of Oregon Ducks. And who knows, maybe that’s why they’ve been playing so well this season! Go Ducks!

 Mark Flores ponders the possibilities when it comes to recruiting speedy linebackers.

• Former Oregon CB Cliff Harris didn't help his draft stock with an unimpressive forty time but Eddie Pleasant had one of the best for his group.

Harris, whose off-field decision making led to him being kicked off the team in 2011, didn't exactly deliver in Indianapolis. He ran an electronic timed 4.59 seconds in the 40-yard dash on Tuesday. Not slow, but hardly elite. He ranks 28th among corners at the combine.

Pleasant, always one of Oregon's fastest players during his time in Eugene, ran the 40 in 4.56 seconds, unofficially, and led his position group with 22 reps in the bench press. Pleasant always tested well; he's a freak athlete.

Cliff needed that...I'm not sure that he can make the next step with such limited experience.
