Morning Quack Fix: Focus on Utah; Ducks back in Seattle in 2010?

Plenty of Quack to go around today. Here's the latest:

  • Rob Moseley takes a look at the Utah match-up. Chip Kelly expects his team's early challenges have prepared them well for a high-intensity battle with the Utes. He also isn't expecting many of Utah's players to blink in Autzen, since the Utes return 11 starters from the team that punched Alabama in the mouth last season.
  • Ron Bellamy of the R-G features Utah's "blitz-loving rover linebacker", Stevenson Sylvester.
  • Bleacher Report's Kyle S. weighs in with his take on Oregon's pivotal game against Utah.
  • Would you travel to Seattle to see the Ducks play at Washington State? I probably would. Sounds like the 2010 game versus the Cougs might be held at Qwest Field.
  • At Oregonlive, Duck lineman Carson York is doing a periodic "diary" post. This week he discusses Oregon's team leadership
  • The Oregonian's Jeff Smith examines how Oregon's running back by committee is shaping up. After seeing the second half maturation of Kenjon Barner and LaMichael James against Purdue, running backs coach Gary Campbell doesn't expect Jeremiah Masoli to be the leading rusher this week.
  • Dan Feldman of Lostletterman.com sent me an interesting link this week. Former Duck QB Danny O'Neil provides perspective on Oregon's tough start by recalling the 1994 Pac-10 championship team he led, which started the season 1-2.
  • Ted Miller of ESPN has his weekly Pac-10 picks in. He expects Oregon to take another step forward. I'm sure he'll get all forms of hate mail from disrespected Beaver fans. And he just can't avoid the soft spot in his heart for the Huskies...claiming their "beaten-up" defensive line is no match for USC, then predicting the Trojans will only score 30. Try 50, Ted.

Be sure to add breaking news or other Duck notes in the comments.
