Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Ted Miller ranks the top five Pac-12 student sections where you'll find Oregon in third place.

Many folks outside the Pac-12 probably immediately thought the Ducks would rule here, and Autzen is the toughest venue in terms of crowd noise in the Pac-12 at present without question. But Oregon students know exactly the problem here: The student section is capped at less than 5,500 for home games. Why? Students don't pay as much for tickets, and Oregon tickets have become hot commodities as the program has surged in the national rankings. Yet while smaller in numbers, the Ducks do get after you.

George Horton picked up his 900th career victory as the Ducks swept the four game series at Hawaii 10-2. Here's a short segment from KEZI.

Scott Heineman and Tyler Baumgartner both had three hits to lead Oregon’s 10-hit attack. Heineman, who entered the game without a hit in the series, went 3-for-5 with three runs scored. Baumgartner was 3-for-4 with a RBI and three runs scored. Mitchell Tolman drove in a pair of runs while going 1-for-4.

GO DUCKS!

Gotta like a sweep to start the year! And yes, our student section is 2nd-rate. Usually, not even full to start a game...that's weak-sauce.
