Maybe Williams can talk some sense into Schnellenberger

Oregon's talented but inconsistent receiver Jaison Williams will play in the "Texas vs. the Nation All-Star Classic" on Saturday in El Paso, making him the seventh Duck to participate in a postseason college All-Star game, according to Duck Feed, Andy McNamara's blog (Addicted to Quack was already taken).

McNamara also calls Williams' coach for the game, Florida Atlantic's Howard Schnellenberger, "legendary."


Perhaps Williams will ask Schnellenberger about his vote in the Coaches' Poll.

Schnelly voted USC No. 8 and Oregon No. 19 at the end of the regular season. Both were the lowest rankings from any of the 60 voters.

He didn't vote any other Pac-10 team in his final top 25.

How about this: At the end of the 2007 season, he ranked Missouri No. 4 and Oklahoma No. 7 even though the Sooners gave Missouri BOTH of its losses?

And Kansas, which lost to Missouri, was No. 2.

Again, hmm.
