Only one week of spring practices left, and then it's time for the spring game this weekend. Make sure to RSVP for the ATQ BBQ and tailgate. Here's your Monday quack:
- Rob Moseley had a couple good posts over the weekend. First he looked at 5 offensive players that had helped themselves during spring ball. Unfortunately, the list didn't do much to quell my worries about the offense. It's great when touted players meet their potential, and though I love seeing underrated guys earn playing time, that's not how you build an elite football team.
- Moseley's look at 5 defensive players is far more encouraging. It's a list of players that will be starters, and also be in reserve, and it covers pretty much every big question the Ducks have had coming into this year. While no DT makes the list, I'm really excited about that position. Also, fun fact, Dion Jordan is as strong as any other defensive lineman on the team.
- Though I'm a bit concerned about the offense, they acquitted themselves nicely in Friday's practice after a dismal showing at the Wednesday scrimmage. But the offense still has a lot of growing to do. While they have good leadership, they still need some players to step up at some key positions. Luckily, they can grow during the summer like the defense isn't able. But as the Ducks enter the final week of practice, the questions about the offense remain.
- Adam Jude has a piece this morning on Oregon tight end Curtis White. A redshirt freshman, White continues to battle injury problems that have plagued him since high school.
How are you feeling about the offense? Leave your thoughts and any other quack in the comments. GO DUCKS!
