Lots of quack out there this morning. Let's get right to it.
- While the Ducks appear to have settled on Dewitt Stuckey (as long as Kiko Alonso is unavailable) and Michael Clay to replace Casey Matthews and Spencer Paysinger at the linebacker position, Moseley wonders how the depth chart will shake out behind them.
- Ken Goe takes a look at the depth the Ducks have at running back, focusing on Tra Carson and De'Anthony Thomas and where they might fit in. Somewhat confusingly, the first time that Lache Seastrunk is mentioned is in a note at the bottom of the story that say his spot on the depth chart is unknown.
- Moseley and Chris Courtney have practice reports from yesterday. In injury news, it sounds like Josh Huff is no longer in a walking boot, though Ricky Heimuli was by the end of practice (Moseley suggests that Heimuli's injury is probably the same that bothered him last week). Players noted for standout performances yesterday include Thomas, Carson, Eric Dungy, Devon Blackmon and others.
- Ted Miller runs down the number of (projected) senior starters for each team. Oregon ranks in the bottom half of the conference with nine seniors projected to start.
- Darron Thomas was named to the 2011 Manning Award watch list. Thomas is one of five conference quarterbacks to make the list, joining Andrew Luck, Jordan Wynn, Nick Foles and Matt Barkley.
- In baseball news, former Duck hurler Tyler Andersen signed a $1.4 million deal with the Colorado Rockies. In related news, Oregon's highest-rated incoming recruit, shortstop Mitch Walding, signed with Philadelphia.
- The 2011 IAAF World Track & Field Championships in South Korea are coming up in a few weeks with seven athletes with Oregon ties set to compete. Joining them in Daegu will be Vin Lananna who will serve as Team USA's head coach and Lance Deal as assistant coach for the throws.
- Did someone say tiny spandex shorts? The Oregon volleyball team is just outside the top 25 of the AVCA preseason poll, with the third-highest vote total in the "others receiving votes" section. Of note, Oregon will open the season on the road against four-time defending champion and preseason #1 Penn state.
