Duck Stuff: Monday Edition

The Ducks fell six spots to #13 in the latest AP poll and dropped to #2 in the Pac-12 power rankings after to losing to MSU.

ESPN: Give the Ducks credit for going on the road against the No. 5 team in the country and being in position to win on their final possession. They’ll stay nationally relevant and probably earned some measure of respect. I thought long and hard about keeping them at No. 1, but their loss wasn’t without self-inflicted mistakes -- hence the one-position drop. But their narrow loss at Michigan State gives their 1-1 record plenty of credibility.

Mark Helfrich talked to the media last night about the MSU loss and fixing the little things. Podcast is here.

■ Caleb Couturie says not to worry Duck fans, you just have to take it in stride.

Marcus Mariota had a record setting day in his debut for the Titans.

Dale Newton also says there is no reason to push the panic button.

If this team continues to improve and believe in one another, it can still be a very good season. We knew Michigan State would be a tough test going in. There’s no reason to panic or call for anyone’s job.
