Do you believe in curses Oregon fans?

If you do, then you probably weren't too thrilled to see all-purpose back De'Anthony Thomas make his debut on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week as part of the magazine's speed issue.

Whether you believe in curses or not, the honor is deserved. The sophomore leads the Pac-12 with 42 points through three games and is third in the league with 158.3 yards per game. He's currently averaging 17.5 yards per rush and 14 yards per reception.

He is truly the most dynamic player in college football and Sports Illustrated acknowledges that by naming him the "The Fastest Man in Football."

Let's just hope this cover doesn't ruin that.
