Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Mark Helfrich talks with reporters after practice yesterday. Video courtesy of KEZI.

• Aaron Fentress believes turnovers won't come easy for the Oregon defense against K-State.

Oregon's number of forced turnovers this season has been a source of pride for Nick Aliotti, especially after a slow start in that department. A few more could be in order for Oregon to find success on Jan. 3.

"I'm hoping we can get about four more," he said. "I'd like to reach 40. And I think that will help us win the game."

• It didn't go as planned in the volleyball championship game for Oregon as they went down to Texas but it still was a great year. The men's basketball team picked up a big win yesterday against Nebraska to improve to 9-1.

Jon Wilner says Oregon is the better team and will win the Fiesta Bowl.

• Adam Jude thinks Dion Jordan will carry the torch for Oregon's NFL hopefuls.

Jordan was one of five college players pictured on the front page of earlier this week for a story on the strong crop of defenders for the 2013 draft. One NFL scout has Jordan listed as the No. 5 overall prospect in this draft class; most mock drafts have him being selected in the latter part of the first round.

"I realized awhile ago that it was no longer a dream," he said of the NFL. "It's a reality now."

I like watching Helfrich, and imagining him as our head coach. He seems like a good guy...a little easier on the reporters than Chip, I would say. Word.
