Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Ted Miller reviews the Pac-12 kicker position group where you will find Oregon in "good shape."

Matt Wogan, Oregon: For most Ducks fans, being just average at kicker is an improvement, as Oregon doesn't try many field goals and the results the past few seasons with big ones have been pretty, er, horrible. But Wogan was a respectable 7-of-9 last season, though his longest was only 39 yards.

■ Derrick Malone was named to the Lombardi Award and Butkus Award watch lists yesterday.

■ The new College Football Championship Trophy was revealed yesterday along with the schedule for the selection show.

■ Scott Reed says character matters when it comes to recruiting.

■ Oregon catcher Josh Graham has been named to the New England Collegiate Baseball League's all-star team.

■ Tyson Alger has a short Q&A session with baseball recruit Slade Heggen.

Heggen, a 6-foot, 196-pound Missoula, Mont., native, is expected to bring a strong bat, speed and defense to the Oregon club.

This summer, Heggen is playing for the Missoula Mavericks legion baseball team, where he is hitting .375 with three home runs, 11 doubles, 11 triples, 27 steals and 36 RBI's.

GO DUCKS!
