Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Chip Kelly, Daryle Hawkins, Bryan Bennett and Marcus Mariota talk with reporters after practice yesterday. Video courtesy of KVAL.

• Chris Anderson details fall camp porgress after two weeks of practice.

Though there is still some uncertainty surrounding the team, all indications are that players are practicing well and giving the coaches some tough decisions before the start of the season.

• Brian reminds us not to get too invested in being a fan. After all, it's just a game, and some real life situations can make you see what truly matters.

• Oregon opens in the fifth spot on the AP's preseason poll.

New stairs are going in on the west side of Autzen that will make it easier for fans and students getting in and out of the stadium.

• Bob Clark details rule changes for kickoffs that take effect this year.

Kicking off from the 35 instead of the 30 yard line and kicks into the end zone that aren’t returned now allow the offense to begin a possession at the 25-yard line instead of the 20.

• Jake Fisher is battling to become the starting left tackle and evidently he has an attitude.

Quarterback Bryan Bennett, in a battle of his own for a starting job, wouldn't mind having his roommate protecting his blind side.

"You can see it now, it's coming even quicker," Bennett said of Fisher's development. "He's done a great job. And Jake's a big, mean S.O.B. on the field. He'll get it done physically."
