The 11th Annual Herbie Awards

Posted: September 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

ESPN Gameday’s Kirk Herbstreit released his annual pre-season list earlier this week.
He’s recognized several Ducks, as outlined below.

> He rates LaMichael James as the #1 running back in the nation.
> He also has James listed as the most exciting player at any position.
> He rates the Oregon backfield as the top “position unit.”
> He rates Darron Thomas at #3 among dual-threat QBs.
> He rates safety John Boyett #5 among “high-motor men.”
> He has coach Chip Kelly listed as the #1 offensive mind.
> He picks Oregon to beat Alabama for the national title.

Yikes! I hope there’s no such thing as a “Herbie Curse!”

    Herbie’s kudos are welcome – but, when the Coach puts on the mascot head – then it’s official!!!
