Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley has your Tuesday practice report.

Highlights: The play of the day was by receiver Darren Carrington, who went up in the back corner of the end zone and won a wrestling match for the ball with a defender. "He's one of those guys that could be a special player, and he showed why he could be with that catch today," UO quarterback Marcus Mariota said. … Jake Rodrigues and Daryle Hawkins also connected for a touchdown in the red zone, while Chris Seisay and Bronson Yim came down with interceptions. … New walk-on tight end Davasyia Hagger also had a play of the day, reaching back and making a one-handed grab during 3-on-2.

■ Gregg Easterbrook at ESPN has a really good read on the Pacific Northwest is sitting on top of the football world.

Evidently Mark Helfrich and Colt Lyerla have made up.

You'll see Oregon mentioned numerous times in the latest edition of Pac-12 stat attack.

Nick Aliotti believes good just isn't good enough, the goal is to be great.

■ Victor Flores has a short Q&A session with Matt Wogan.

■ Dale Newton likes the story behind TE Johnny Mundt. Here is a sample from Dale's article:

Billy Hylla is the Central Catholic Athletic Director and defensive coordinator. When Johnny Mundt committed to Oregon in the summer of 2012, A.J. Jacobson of gave him a call. What kind of a kid is he? Jacobson asked.

"The special thing about him as that sometimes your hardest worker isn't always your best athlete. John is the exception to that. He is a phenomenal athlete plus he's one of our toughest kids. He is our hardest worker and he is a leader. He is the complete package that you look for in a football player."
