What a difference 90 days can make.
Phil Steele Publications, which did not have Oregon ranked among the top 40 teams in its preseason poll, has named four Ducks to its postseason all-conference team. The honorees are Ed Dickson (TE), LaMichael James (RB), Jeremiah Masoli (QB) and Bo Thran (OL).
Steele’s second team includes Kenjon Barner (KR), John Boyett (S) and Casey Matthews (LB), and representing the Ducks on the third team are Brandon Bair (DT), Jeff Maehl (WR) and Will Tukuafu (DE).
Boyett was also named to the national all-freshman first team with James earning second-team and Carson York (OL) earning third team recognition.
