Misc. Links Today

  • Kirk Herbstreit released his Eighth Annual Herbie Awards today. While the offense didn't make any of the position lists, the Ducks secondary had 3 of 4 players make the list. Jarius Byrd and Walter Thurmond came in 3rd and 4th (respectively) in the cornerback category and Patrick Chung came in 5th on the Safety category. Herbstreit also believes that Jamere Holland will be a household name by the end of September (That's as long as he can stay healthy), Nick Reed was mentioned a player that doesn't get enough respect and Chip Kelly was the #2 top player caller based on talent to work with. Some of Kirks picks were dead on while there were a few that brought a "huh? really?" For example, Herbstreit picked Arizona as his conference sleeper. Really? With good 'ole Stoops running that team? We'll see come December.
  • I'm sure you've all heard already but Costa is out for 8 - 10 weeks to remove some damaged cartilage from his knee. As I said early, I'm more than happy with the Ducks QBs.
  • Garrett was also dismissed from the team, apparently he also had some academic issues.
  • Ted Miller predicted that Coach Bellotti will win Pac-10 coach of the year.
  • It's over, I guess we should just crown UCLA the Pac-10 champion. Ted Miller had something to say about that and looks like only one person actually thought it was worth commenting on.
  • Ted Miller ranked the Pac-10 Schedules and Oregon ranked at 6th. Seems about right.
  • Oregon made 3 of 10 of the 2008 Pac-10 games to watch.
  • Keeping an eye on this weeks opponent Washington. Willingham is happy he finally knows which QB to prepare for and Locker says he doesn't know how to figure out health percentages.
