Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley has your Tuesday practice report.

Most impressive period of the day was 7-on-7; Marcus Mariota put every single ball right on a receiver, and the only incompletion was a drop. He completed passes to Dwayne Stanford, Darren Carrington, Byron Marshall, Keanon Lowe, Johnny Mundt and Pharaoh Brown, before wrapping up the drill with his prettiest ball yet, a tear drop over a defender to Royce Freeman. I didn’t think Mariota was particularly sharp Monday, perhaps because it was his first look at Wyoming’s scheme, but he was on point today. … Not often blocking grabs my attention, but Lowe and Devon Allen had nice downfield blocks on one run by Freeman, Carrington held off a defender for Marshall, and Doug Brenner got upfield to clear a path for Kenny Bassett...

■ Andrew Greif says Oregon is pleased with the emergence of Chris Seisay.

■ Tyson Alger says Tyrell Crosby has stepped out of Royce Freeman's shadow.

Charles Nelson may see more playing time as the season progresses.

Tyler Johnstone is helping the team from a different perspective.

■ Chantel Jennings says the "next man up" mantra is paying dividends this year.

■ Oregon officially signed All-Americans Taj Griffin, Alex Ofodile and Zach Okun yesterday and the trio should be in school starting January.

■ Marcus Mariota leads the Pac-12 QB Power Rankings.

■ has the latest inductees to the Oregon hall of fame.

■ Charles Fisher analyzes a few plays from the MSU game.
