Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

• Adam Jude has yesterday's practice report and it sounds like Bralon Addison continues to impress.
"Being a freshman, you come in with that try-to-fit-in mentality," Addison said Friday. "And I talked to Coach (Helfrich) in the off-season and he told me that he was expecting big things out of me in spring, and I just wanted to come out and show that I've matured and just hit the ground running and practice as fast as I could every play, every day."
Helfrich said Addison's "excellent" spring reached a peak Thursday with the sophomore's best practice yet. A day later, Lubick echoed those comments, saying Addison had an even better workout Friday.
• WR Dwayne Stanford is scheduled for knee surgery after sustaining an injury earlier this week.
• Tommy Thorpe pitched another beautiful game as Oregon took out Cal 3-2 last night in Berkeley.
The Ducks’ lefthander struck out seven in 7.1 innings, while allowing two runs (one earned). Jimmie Sherfy pitched a perfect ninth inning to pick up his 10th save.
Game two between Oregon and Cal is at 6 p.m. tonight.
