Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
■ Ted Miller talks with Mark Helfrich after the Spring Game about his new role, Marcus Mariota and the new college football playoff system.
■ Rob Moseley reviews the running back position now that spring practice has concluded.
The Ducks will feel good entering the summer if: Byron Marshall takes another step forward and looks like a viable starter in the two-back situations for which De'Anthony Thomas, in a tazer role, is best suited.
■ Are the stars aligned for an early launch by underclassmen on the football team for the 2014 draft? And if they are, it seems one prognosticator think a couple will go in the first round.
■ Marcus Mariota and Boseko Lokombo teamed up with several kids at the Boys & Girls Club in Eugene yesterday for the "O" lympics for some good fun. Pictures included on the slideshow tab.
■ Mitchell Tolman's two RBI's weren't enough as Oregon lost to Seattle last night 3-2.
Oregon continues a five-game road trip when the Ducks open a three-game Pac-12 Conference Series at Washington State on Friday at 6 p.m.
