Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Dale Newton liked what he saw in Thomas Tyner's freshman campaign.

As a freshman at Oregon, his 845 yards from scrimmage were just a down payment on the player he can become in college football. At 5-11, 211 he has the power to make first downs, and after running a 10.35 100 as a prep, the speed to outrun anyone in the game, angle or not.

■ George Horton will be looking at several career milestones in 2014.

■ Tyson Alger has a nice story about one special moment at PK Park.

■ David Piper @ATQ wonders where the offensive power will come now that Ryon Healy is gone.

[Scott] Heineman and [Kyle] Garlick have provided some in the past, but nobody has provided anywhere near the power that Healy did last season. Making up those 11 home runs and 20 doubles doesn't have to all come from one person, but there needs to be a consistent increase in production across the lineup to maintain last year's offensive level. And if Oregon wants to get that elusive trip to Omaha this season, they don't have to just maintain last year's level--they have to increase it...

GO DUCKS!
