Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Are you ready for some baseball? GoDucksdotcom thinks you should be at PK Park starting later today.
• Kevin Gemmell picks out Ifo Ekpre-Olomu for a top performance honor for 2012.
The numbers: Ekpre-Olomu had just one tackle, but he picked off Arizona quarterback Matt Scott twice -- returning one of them for a 54-yard touchdown. He also broke up three passes.
• De'Anthony Thomas takes questions from students at McCornack Elementary School in Eugene as part of a Read-a-Thon Celebration at the school yesterday. Nice to see him giving back to the community.
• Ted Miller has a spring preview for the Pac-12 North division and talks about Oregon's "next man up" after several seniors graduated.
Which young players will take the next step? Defensive linemen Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner, running back Byron Marshall, receivers Chance Allen and B.J. Kelley and safety Reggie Daniels have the ability and will have the opportunity in 2013.
