- In case you missed it, Adam Jude had a nice piece on offensive lineman Mark Asper on Sunday. Asper and his wife, who just welcomed their second daughter into their family, are looking forward to spending the holidays at home in Eugene this year rather than in a hotel or traveling for a bowl game.
- The Ducks have been a dominating second-half team this year, outscoring their opponents 277 - 77 after halftime. Rob Moseley takes a look at several different contributing factors, including Oregon's offensive pace, defensive substitutions and the team's calm presence.
- John Hunt has some quotes from Lache Seastrunk, who struggled earlier this season with the decision to redshirt and says he considered transferring. Thankfully, Lache decided to stick it out and is working hard to earn some playing time next season -- regardless of whether or not LMJ returns. Hunt also has a piece on how the team is trying to avoid distractions leading up to January 10.
- Ted Miller has a mailbag with a number of Oregon-related items -- including his thoughts on whether LaMichael James will return for his junior season. Miller also posts an interview between James and Andrea Adelson.
- As many of you noted in the comments yesterday, it was big day for former Duck running backs in the NFL as Jonathan Stewart, Maurice Morris and LeGarrette Blount each rushed for more than 100 yards.
