Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Andrew Greif reviews how the Oregon receivers and tight ends did during spring practice and looks ahead to fall.

The receivers were the story of the spring and will remain so on an offense with few other concerns. The questions revolve around Bralon Addison's knee injury, which could keep him out the entire season and makes Oregon's Pac-12 championship hopes dicier without his explosive mix of receiving and returning. Without him, Oregon's top four receivers from 2013 are either graduated or injured, and there's no way around it -- the attrition makes the unit the easiest to wonder about entering fall.

■ Chantel Jennings breaks down OL, DL and LB's heading info fall camp.

■ More preseason accolades from Phil Steele and his All-Pac-12 choices for Oregon.

■ JC linebacker Eddie Heard will be joining Oregon later this year.

■ Andrew Bantly reviews the Oregon baseball season.

■ Jake Reed goes in the fifth round to the Minnesota Twins, while Tommy Thorpe was selected in the eighth round by the Chicago Cubs yesterday.

■ George Horton had higher hopes for the baseball team this year but injuries seemed to get in his way and that has to be frustrating.

“We talk about ‘next Duck up,’ but the reality is that we lost two of the best pitchers in America, who most likely would have been our Friday and Saturday guys,” Horton said. “I think that put a little bit of a strain on our pitchers, our young pitchers, and affected us down the stretch.”
