Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Ted Miller talks with Oregon safety John Boyett about the Ducks' defense, winning a Rose Bowl and the quarterback competition.
• Ted also has a separate article about Boyett and talks in depth about the upcoming season.
A soon-to-be four-year starter for the Ducks, the 5-foot-10, 202-pound senior from Napa, Calif., is child of a football family, and he's obsessed with the game, whether that's about conditioning or watching film or playing with an intensity that easily endures the filtering presentation of a TV camera.
• Chris Charbonnier @FishDuck.com has posted the conclusion to his Pac-12 recruiting talent series.
• Rob Moseley continues his spring preview with a look at the wide receiver position.
Optimists will see promise at this position for Oregon because of all the athletic talent on hand. Pessimists will rue the lack of experience. What will reality hold? That may be determined in large part by the development over the next nine months of the Ducks' redshirt freshman class of Devon Blackmon, B.J. Kelley and Tacoi Sumler.
