Duck Stuff

Rob Moseley has your Wednesday practice report.

...Morgan Mahalak got the No. 1 offense into the end zone with a scramble of about 15 yards and then a TD pass to Thomas Tyner. The defense then got another stop, and the two sides fought to a draw in the fifth and final possession, when another Prevot sack forced the offense to settle for an Aidan Schneider field goal of about 46 yards...

■ Andrew Greif wonders if Oregon can make it three straight seasons with a 1,000-yard receiver.

■ The writers at FD are busy as Omar Garibay talked with Scott Frost after practice yesterday; Joey Holland wonders if the running backs will compensate for the loss of Marcus Mariota and Mark Flores has the latest recruiting update.

■ George Horton isn't relishing having to watch the Ducks from home. Oregon will try and beat up on the dawgs for the first two games of the three game series at PK Park which starts tomorrow.

For all of the Ducks, this was their first time seeing Horton ejected from a game. Some players doubted whether or not Horton did it on purpose, possibly trying to plant a charge into a team performing below expectations. But whether Horton was looking to light a fuze or not, his team hopes it can rally behind a manager who put himself on the line for a player.

"It's frustrating that I won't be included Friday and Saturday, but I'll be glued to the TV," he said. "The good news is it's on TV."
