Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley has your Wednesday practice report.

Highlights: Two linebackers stood out to me during the first 11-on-11 period, a "good on good" session between the two-deep on offense and defense. Boseko Lokombo stuffed an outside run and then, on the very next play, an inside run... 

During red-zone drills, Mariota had touchdowns to Thomas and Mundt. And in one of the final periods of the day, center Karrington Armstrong did a nice job of pulling out and sealing a linebacker off so that Ayele Forde could get to the outside for a long gain.

Dale Newton previews the Arizona game this weekend.

■ Victor Flores has a quick Q&A with Alejandro Maldonado who isn't considering a NFL career after college.

Ken Goe looks back at the classic 2009 battle between Oregon and Arizona.

■ Andrew Greif looks at ways Oregon can slow down Ka'Deem Carey.

Kevin Gemmell reminds us that Oregon controls their Rose Bowl destiny.

■ Ted Miller can't believe the Heisman voters have forgotten about Marcus Mariota.

Mariota is the best quarterback in the country. We know this because the numbers say so. He fronts the nation's No. 5 team and an offense that averages 51 points and 580 yards per game. 

He has passed for 25 touchdowns. He has yet to throw an interception. After throwing three touchdown passes against Utah, he extended his Pac-12 record streak of pass attempts without an interception to 353. The old mark was 216 by USC's Brad Otton from 1994-95, so Mariota hasn't merely broken the record, he has stomped it into oblivion.
