Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
■ Robby Boydstun watches Oregon QB commit Morgan Mahalak as he works through a few drills at the Elite-11 camp held at the Nike Campus in Beaverton recently.
■ Victor Flores thinks Oregon's dominance might have prevented Marcus Mariota from being a 2012 Heisman finalist.
The abundance of offensive threats around Mariota also reduced his opportunities to be involved in the offense, especially because Oregon was so run-oriented. Manziel didn't have superstars like Barner or Thomas taking possessions away from him. He was the most involved Aggie player on offense by far. A big reason why Mariota had much fewer passing and rushing attempts was because he wasn't the clear-cut most dangerous player on his team.
