Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Chip Kelly talks with reporters after practice yesterday. Video courtesy of ODE.

As usual, Chip is pleased with Oregon's preparation for Colorado.

One thing Chip Kelly has stressed in his program is the benefits of a routine — practice in the morning, meetings in the evening, classes in between. Rinse, dry, repeat. 

Rob Moseley reports on the value of Michael Clay being on the field.

Clay, a “glue guy” and “coach on the field” for the UO defense — depending on which coach is describing him — is the vocal linchpin for the Ducks. Nobody processes information as well as the senior linebacker; he makes sure the front seven is set before the snap, and stays in touch with the secondary.

Ken Woody wonders what the foul smell is coming from the Pac-12's replay routine?

Ted Miller and Kevin Gemmell both have predicted a big win for Oregon on Saturday. No shocker there.

Charles and Aaron Fentress both wonder what's up with DAT?

Charles' thoughts: Free De'Anthony! Make sure he has nine catches in this game and send him long three times. Future opponents will double-cover Thomas and when we drag Huff and Lyerla across in medium patterns, they’ll be wide open. Sending De'Anthony on streaks or posts has Win-Win results as it helps him, it helps our other receivers, and it helps our offensive balance. Free De'Anthony! Make it Rough on the Buffs.

Charles tip-toed into his piece, I think as a result of so many people brow-beating that other author for his ill-informed opinion piece. Word.
