Sporting News has put out their list of the top 25 players in the country for the upcoming year. It's just one company's view but these are always fun to look at especially when there is some local flavor with D Thomas making his mark at number 14. If he can stay healthy and with the system he plays in, there is no limit to what he is capable of putting up. His size is a bit of a concern though. I just don't know if he can handle being a RB and carrying the rock 20 times a game. But as a hybrid in the Ducks spread he could be the most dangerous player in the country. USC is going to be a beat though, Barkley and his two WR all crack the top 10.
(AP) . . . Peyton Manning is more productive than he's ever been, and whether he's deciphering defenses at the line of scrimmage on game day or on his iPad during the week, his love for the game hasn't waned. More.
