Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley has your Monday practice report.

Highlights: The weather Saturday obviously had a lot to do with all the fumbles, but today the Ducks showed how much stripping the ball is emphasized in practice. DeForest Buckner, who forced one fumble and recovered another Saturday, did both on the same play early in practice. Later, Avery Patterson had a scoop and score. … The wind and rain also played havoc with the passing game Saturday. In the Mo today the UO offense was back to its typical efficiency, with Marcus Mariota rifling scoring passes to Eric Dungy and Josh Huff during 11-on-11. … During the same period, Jeff Lockie connected on an intermediate length pass to Thomas Tyner, who scooted into the end zone. … Jake Pisarcik had a pancake during one-on-one pass-rush drills. … An outmatched cornerback was driven about 25 yards down the field when left tackle Andre Yruretagoyena got his hands on him.

Ever wonder how the players spend their day before a night game? It used to be spending the day in a hotel room but with the new football facility it looks pretty comfortable.

Ted Miller and The Sporting News continue having Oregon at the top of their Pac-12 power rankings.

Kevin Gemmell has Bralon Addison as his Pac-12 special teams standout of the week.

We saw numerous fumbles, bad snaps and weather-induced wackiness. But there was nothing wacky about Oregon’s Bralon Addison, who returned two punts for touchdowns. The first was a 75-yard return in the second quarter that was pure sideline speed. The second, a 67-yard return, required a little more dancing and cutting -- and avoiding being knocked down by his teammate before the play even got started.
