Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Rod Gilmore counts the top five corner backs in college football where you'll find Ifo right at the top where he belongs.

■ Matt Takimoto @ATQ has part one of an "Exhaustive Chip Kelly Retrospective" and he is as entertaining as always.

Chip Kelly came to Eugene in 2007 from New Hampshire, and proceeded to turn Oregon into an offensive behemoth. The Ducks averaged almost 43 points per game until Dennis Dixon's knee went kaput, and the Justin Roper-led Ducks hung 56 points on South Florida in the Sun Bowl. SInce that season, Oregon has been in the top 10 in points per game in every season, including being in the top 3 the past three years. (more here)

Athlon Sports has lots of Oregon mentions in their projected All Pac-12 Team for the coming year.

■ Charles Fisher does an in-depth analysis of QB commit Morgan Mahlak.

Mark Flores has the latest news on recruiting.

Joey Holland wonders if speed will ever trump size.

■ Oregon pitcher Cole Wiper has signed a MLB contract with the Texas Rangers.

Oregon redshirt freshman Cole Wiper, a 10th-round draft pick, has signed with the Texas Rangers for a $700,000 signing bonus — a staggering sum for a right-handed pitcher who threw just 12.2 innings for the Ducks this past season.
