Duck Stuff: Wednesday Edition

■ Ted Miller says Oregon is in "great shape" when he looks at Pac-12 North receivers.

...Junior Darren Carrington came back from a suspension to earn second-team All-Pac-12 honors, ranking second on the team with 32 receptions for 609 yards -- a stout 19 yards per reception -- and six touchdowns. Senior Dwayne Stanford caught 30 passes for 463 yards -- 15.4 yards per catch -- and five scores. Speedster Devon Allen was not himself much of the year as he came back from a major knee injury, but he should return to form as a junior. Don't forget two-way star Charles Nelson, who could bolster this unit. There's also a strong crew of young players who will be in the mix. If tight end Pharaoh Brown returns from a serious leg injury to battle with Evan Baylis and Johnny Mundt for touches, the Ducks will be among the deepest crews of pass catchers in the country.

■ Oregon hosts WSU tonight at MKA and are looking for a complete game from start to finish.

With senior day looming Sunday, and a matchup with dangerous Washington, the Ducks faced questions this week about the potential of overlooking the Cougars. But with the Pac-12 race, a top NCAA Tournament seed and the goal of a 40-minute performance at stake, the UO men said Tuesday they’re eager to play Wednesday, and to play well.

So good at receiver, but as we learned last year, we need a quarterback that can distribute the rock. Word.
