Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Chantel Jennings believes Devon Allen is the breakout player for Oregon this spring.

Allen provides top-end burner speed and, having redshirted last season, he has spent a lot of time in the playbook while learning from more experienced players. Those attributes could be enough to propel him to a very big season for the Ducks. Between Huff, Hawkins, Thomas and Addison, the Ducks will be looking to replace more than 2,500 receiving yards. Look for Allen to be a guy who could have a 600- or 700-yard season.

■ Rob Moseley reviews the receivers and tight ends now that spring practice is completed.

■ Andrew Greif rates the linebacker group post spring.

■ Is Mark Helfrich leaving his own imprint on Oregon football?

■ The Saturday Edge wonders if Oregon football will be better, worse or about the same compared to 2013. (our old buddy Charles Fisher contributes to this)

Apparently even the celebs like wearing their Duck gear.

■ The softball team took care of business in dominating fashion as they rolled over Utah Valley 12-1 in five innings yesterday at Howe Field in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.

■ Oregon used big defensive plays yesterday at UCLA to win the opening game of the series 2-1.

Mitchell Tolman went 3-for-4 and scored a run to lead Ducks.

Oregon and UCLA will play game two of their series Saturday night with a 7:05 p.m. first pitch. The game will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks.

GO DUCKS!
