I find it odd that so many people get bent out of shape over the award watch list.
Yeah, especially considering this-

The watch list is determined by analysis of the pre-season All-American teams listed in at least six pre-season college football annual magazines. Four points are awarded for first team, three points for second team, two points for third and one point for fourth teams and honorable mentions. This list is not final and players who have good seasons are added as the season progresses.
In other words, it's not all that relevant. The fact that Patrick Chung isn't mentioned doesn't really bother me at this point because I know he'll be added to the list during the season while he's asserting himself as one of the nation's premier DB's and being watched closely by NFL personnel. But realistically, there's no way a Duck player is standing at that podium when they announce the winner. So making that list doesn't really matter.
