And the preseason praise for the Minnesota Golden Gophers just keeps on coming in. This week it was announced that Golden Gopher Quarterback, Adam Weber, was among the 38 quarterbacks in the nation to be placed on the 2009 preseason Manning Award Watch-list.
"We have another great class of quarterbacks this season," said Archie Manning. "We have 38 quarterbacks on our Watch List, but there are any number of other guys who could step into the picture as the season gets going. It's going to be a lot of fun to watch another tremendous college football season."
The Manning Award was created to honor the achievements of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning. Created by the AllState Sugar Bowl it is the only quarterback that takes into consideration a quarterbacks performance in the Bowl Series. The award winner will be announced in January and there will be a banquet to honor him in February.

Good Job Adam!
