It was announced yesterday that the Senior Bowl has invited Max Unger and Jeremiah Johnson to their 60th annual event Jan. 24, 2009 in Mobile, Ala.
These are the first Oregon players invited since Terrence Whitehead and Demetrius Williams went to the 2005 game. A total of 24 Ducks have ever been invited with 12 of those coming from the Bellotti era.
There has been some talk recently (mostly from the Boise St. side of things) that Oregon's 2009 opening game against the Broncos wasn't going to happen. Not according to Oregon staff who let it be known that the Ducks are committed to playing the game.
One schedule change was noted however, Oregon will replace a visit from Central Michigan in 2010 with a home game against Portland State.
Last but not least, a very thorough article by George Schroeder at the Register Guard about local Thurston High quarterback Tym Pearson, be sure to check it out. Will he be a Duck?
