Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Sean Goodbody analyzes the zone coverage that kept the Kansas St. passing game in check.

Duck fans have made a habit of lambasting Nick “Allow-a-lotti” for his “bend but don’t break” style, but he drew up the perfect game plan against a balanced passing attack: take away all the long throws, concede the short throws, and bet that the Wildcats’ slow methodical drives won’t net as many points as Oregon’s point-per-minute ambush.  He was right, and the Oregon defense dominated a game that was close for only a matter of minutes in the 2nd quarter.

John Boyett and Dion Jordan look to make a good impression at the NFL Combine despite nagging injuries.

• Oregon completed a four-game sweep of Hawaii yesterday as they took down the Rainbows 4-2.

J.J. Altobelli went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored to lead Oregon past Hawaii in the finale of a four-game series at Les Murakami Stadium on Monday.

Oregon returns home where the Ducks will open a three-game series on Friday against Loyola Marymount (2-1). Game times are 6 p.m. on Friday, 2 p.m. on Saturday and Noon on Sunday.

I had a chance to watch some of yesterday's game. It was streamed by Hawai'i's athletic department website. Saweet!
