Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• FishDuck (aka Charles Fisher) explains the importance of a speedy, pulling center that can block in numerous ways.
• Jim Maloney @ FishDuck.com opens the history book and looks at several former dual sport (football-track) Oregon athletes.
• Rob Moseley notes that Dior Mathis and B.J. Kelley had a good day at the track yesterday and has some video links of their performances.
• The march to Madison Square Gardens continues as the Ducks beat Iowa yesterday 108-97 in the NIT. Next for Oregon will be the dawgs on Tuesday.
• FishDuck.com has a new segment called the coaches corner. Their first guest is Coach Tony Demeo who explains the importance of goal setting during the off season.
• Dale Newton is looking forward to the start of a new season and watching a new group mold themselves into a finely tuned machine.
A new group has to identify their leaders and their goals, and prove their willingness to sacrifice and stay on target in five long months for a season that will only happen once in their lives.
We watch, and our heart soars with them, pursuing hope like an arrow to the target of excellence. It's spring football, and despite March Madness and Opening Day and the blooming of the azaleas, it might be the most compelling sports story west of the Rockies.
