Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley highlights all the little things Oregon did right to dispatch BYU yesterday in the second round of March Madness.

In one of its most complete performances of the season, the Oregon men's basketball team beat the Cougars, 87-68, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The Ducks won NCAA Tournament games in consecutive seasons for the first time ever, and set up a third-round game Saturday against No. 2 seed Wisconsin, and what's sure to be an arena full of Badgers fans.

■ Chris Charbonnier says when it comes to recruiting for the football team it's still all about the offense.

■ Oregon WR Eric Dungy will be looking to transfer to South Florida according to multiple sources.

■ Josh White says Mark Helfrich is assaulting the record books with Chip Kelly's best quarterback.

While Helfrich will inevitably put his own stamp on the program, he will be coaching a roster made up of many of Chip’s recruits for the next few years.  Even so, Helfrich likely served a substantial role in landing these recruits as offensive coordinator – one of which, quarterback Marcus Mariota, might be the very best of that bunch.
