Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Marcus Mariota tops the Pac-12 in ESPN's latest Heisman Watch heading into the season.'s initial "Heisman Watch" poll has been published, and Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota leads four Pac-12 players who made the list. 

Mariota ranked fifth, behind South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel -- the 2012 winner, you might have heard -- and Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron.

■ Ryan Thorburn tries to predict the initial AP poll heading into the 2013 season and has Oregon in the #4 spot.

■ Oregon sophomore Tanner Faris lays out what it takes to be an Oregon superfan.

■ Oregon is weighing their options when it comes to video game licensing.

■ ESPN has released its 2013 preseason All-America team where you'l find Marcus Mariota, De'Anthony Thomas and Ifo Ekpre-Olumu.

■ Dale Newton wonders how good can Boseko Lokombo be in his senior year.

Reporting from Oregon practice Thursday, Rob Moseley of wrote, "During pass-rush drills, the offensive line held its ground on reps by Everett Benyard, Karrington Armstrong and Jake Pisarcik. But Boseko Lokombo was absolutely unblockable, no matter who he went against."

The Ducks need Bo to be unblockable more often. If he does that, the limit is not even the limit, for him or his defense.
