Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Ted Miller has Oregon at the top of the Pac-12 Power Rankings.

The Ducks have met all challenges with a dominant effort. No team has been able to end up within three touchdowns of them after four quarters. Can Stanford solve the Oregon riddle at home on Nov. 7?

■ Ifo Ekpre-Olomu has been named one of 15 semifinalists for the 2013 Jim Thorpe Award, presented to the top defensive back in college football.

■ Dale Newton looks at how Oregon surged to victory over UCLA.

■ Jason Quick says Byron Marshall has emerged as one of the nation's top running backs.

Charles Fisher analyzes several plays the Oregon defensive players show superior technique in getting tackles for a loss.

■ DL Justin Hollins out of Arlington, TX has given his verbal commitment to Oregon.

■ Ted Miller has a couple of thoughts on the pending matchup between Oregon and Stanford.

Stanford will have no chance against the Ducks without some passing game, and the one the Cardinal brought to Oregon State won't cut it against the Ducks defense, which might have the nation's best secondary.

It's all about whether or not we can operate our offense against Stanford. When we can, we throw up 52 and it's no big deal...but we haven't always been able to. Of course, this year, with our defense...maybe we don't need to.
