Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Dale Newton has some bye-week questions with Stanford looming on the horizon.

Oregon is 8-0 going into the road game at Stanford on national TV, Thursday night in primetime on ESPN.

With all these opportunities and possibilities still alive, what do see happening for the Oregon Ducks in the next two months?

Mike Bellotti used to like to say, "The games they remember are played in November."  The worth of everything Oregon has done to this point hinges on how they finish the job.

■ Andrew Greif remembers the last Oregon loss that marred a road-game winning streak and wonders what will happen this time around.

■ Ted Miller calls November "crunch time."

Ted Miller also wonders "did you know?"

It’s the calm before the storm since eight teams ranked in the BCS Standings are idle this week, including five in the top 10 and four of the top six. Things change quickly though. Next Thursday features top-10 matchups between Oklahoma-Baylor and Oregon-Stanford. On Saturday, top-ranked Alabama hosts LSU. All six of those teams are idle this week.
