Cover Boys
Tuesday, August 11, 7:00 a.m. PT

If you subscribe to Sports Illustrated and are an Oregon football fan, you may be happily suprised when the latest issue hits your mailbox. The magazine's annual college football preview features the Ducks among four teams that grace the cover, depending on your geographic location.

Oregon juniors Jeremiah Masoli and Jordan Holmes are the cover boys for the western U.S. and will be staring out from news stands and airport gift shops from Seattle to Tempe in August. Acclaimed SI photographer Peter Read Miller visited Eugene in July and shot the duo in the Moshofsky center.

The other three teams with quarterback/center duos on regional covers are Oklahoma State, Ole Miss and Penn State.

Holmes and Masoli were shot with and without helmets for the SI cover.

Peter Read Miller discusses the shoot with UO's junior center.

Brian Butterfield can also claim he was on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Mr. Miller and I were both shooting with Canon cameras. My guess is his final product may be a little sharper.
