Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
■ George Horton talks about the come-from-behind victory over South Dakota St. last night at the Eugene Regional.
■ GoDucks.com has all the details from the game last night.
All-American Jimmie Sherfy pitched the ninth to pick up his 21st save of the season. Garrett Cleavinger (9-0) got the win after retiring the side in the eighth inning. Starter Jake Reed allowed just two runs, one earned, in seven innings. He struck out three while finishing with no walks.
■ Victor Flores sits down with Baseball America's Conor Glassey to talk about draft prospects on Oregon's baseball team.
■ Ted Miller wonders if Oregon can win without Chip Kelly.
■ Brandon Gruber takes a closer look at the 2013 signing class for the football team and wonders about their NFL potential.
Thomas Tyner: Anyone that rushes for 643 yards in a single game is bound to attract attention. In three plays one will see the limitless upside this youngster has and why Duck fans are so excited about the in-state product. Size (215 pounds), speed (10.5 seconds in the 100 meter dash) and a pretty nasty one-cut separated himself from many of the running backs at the U.S. Army All America Bowl practices.
Tyner is the closest thing to a power/speed back the Ducks have had since Jonathan Stewart. But Tyner has the potential to be as high a pick as Stewart (first round to the Carolina Panthers) was and have an even better pro career.
