Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Just a little video to get you pumped up for the Pac-12 Network.
• Rob Moseley details the lavish digs that will be available next year to student athletes and coaches in the new Operations Center currently under construction. Courtesy of Uncle Phil.
• John Canzano has a couple of Ducks on his most influential people in Oregon Sports with George Horton and De'Anthony Thomas coming in at number 19 and 17.
• Mark Flores @FishDuck.com has his weekly recruiting update ready for your reading enjoyment.
• Steve Summers previews the Oregon running back position.
With Kenjon Barner, De'Anthony Thomas, Ayele Ford and newcomer Byron Marshall on the short list, the Ducks look to continue the trend of run first pass second.
• Ted Miller previews the defensive end postion in the Pac-12 and has Oregon in the "great shape" category.
Dion Jordan is the best returning defensive end -- first-team All-Pac-12 in 2011 -- but his position has looked more line an outside linebacker of late. So he doesn't get a full chit here (the Ducks would have been an easy No. 1 here if he did). Taylor Hart, who mostly played tackle last year, Isaac Remington, Jared Ebert and touted freshman Arik Armstead give the Ducks a strong foursome.
