Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Oregon Gridiron has their Spring Game motivational video ready for your enjoyment.
• Ted Miller believes Taylor Hart flies underneath the radar.
Defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti provides Hart's name first when he explains that he's more worried about replacing safety Eddie Pleasant than DE Terrell Turner. We'd say that Hart is the Hart and Soul of the Ducks defensive front, but then you'd accuse us of making a bad pun. So we won't do that. A 14-game starter last fall, Hart earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 notice. He can play both DT and DE, as he is proficient at holding his ground as well as attacking.
• In baseball news, for the second consecutive week, sophomore Aaron Payne has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week.
• The Oregon Ducks baseball team, coming off a series win over Arizona that extended their Pac-12 lead to 1 1/2 games, moved up one spot to No. 9 in the latest Baseball America Top 25 released Monday morning.
