Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley has your Saturday practice report.

Other observations: Johnathan Loyd stood out over the course of the day. He had leaping, diving catches on balls thrown by both Lockie and Marcus Mariota. … The final 10 minutes of practice were spent scrimmaging through various late-game situations. … Special teams coordinator Tom Osborne was coaching the kickoff team when he yelled to the group on the field, "You've got to be on a mission! You've got to have something to prove, men!" … After practice, the Ducks spent a couple of hours at Disneyland.

■ Chantel Jennings talks about the riddle of Jameis Winston and how the the Ducks will try to solve it.

“It’s a different trait,” defensive lineman Arik Armstead said of Winston’s winning abilities. “A lot of players play well in the clutch and he’s one of those guys who finds a way to win.”

■ Andrew Greif compares the QB play of Oregon vs the defense of FSU and  Joseph Hoyt examines the two teams secondary.

Hroniss Grasu says he is still day to day but hopes to be ready for the Rose Bowl. Pharaoh Brown lifted the team's spirit by showing up at practice yesterday.

■ Tyson Alger says the Ducks feel right at home in Southern California and the Rose Bowl which might be an advantage for Oregon.

Joe Walker has been an unsung hero on the defense this year,

■ Dave Kensler calls Byron Marshall an unsung hero of the Oregon offense.

■ Jason Selby says Hroniss Grasu appears to be back from his injury.

■ Max Thornberry reminds us that defense wins championships.
