FILE - In this Aug. 9, 2010 file photo, Oregon running back LaMichael James is the center of attention during NCAA college football media day in Eugene, Ore.  Last season James was thrust into a starting role for the Ducks as a redshirt freshman and far surpassed all expectations. Then in the offseason he was arrested and wound up pleading guilty to a charge stemming from an altercation with his ex-girlfriend. As a result of the trouble, James will now sit out No. 11 Oregon's opener Saturday against New Mexico at Autzen Stadium.(AP Photo/Don Ryan, file)
