Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Oregon moved past Alabama to claim the #2 spot in the weekly AP poll.

In the AP poll of media, Oregon moved up one spot to No. 2 this week. The Ducks received 16 first-place votes, and trailed No. 1 Florida State by 48 points, 1,463 to 1,415.

On a day when Stanford lost and Washington struggled, the Ducks showed they can matchup with one of the toughest and most disciplined and physical teams in the country. This Oregon team has smashed the ESPN narrative forever. They have the speed, talent and focus to beat anyone on their schedule.

Dude...Dale...don't I know it. I love Oregon moving past's early, but that feels great. I also love Marcus and Ifo getting stickers for that game...that game was a big reason they came back, and they deserved their moments.

Why doesn't anyone mention the fact that Oregon whooped the Stanford team by 3 touchdowns in 2010 and 2011? The ducks also won back to back to back pac 12 championships. Are all the pac 12 teams cup cakes?
By the way, Stanford had a guy named Andrew Luck as quarterback and was on an 18 game winning streak contending for a national title and Oregon went to their house and beat them by 23. I thought Oregon couldn't beat a physical team. P-L-E-A-S-E stop the poor reporting. Enough already.
