Marcus Mariota about to join college football's...
Congrats to Marcus Mariota on winning Heisman. Now that Oregon's D has suddenly gone from awful to good, Ducks have ti…
Alright folks, I really wanna hear from everyone on this. The college football regular season has ended and the first-ever College Football Playoff is underway. I know I have primarily SEC fans on here, mostly LSU, UT, and AU, so I want to hear who you will be rooting for in the playoffs and why. I for one pick Florida State. The reason for that is because I despise all the media hype and glorification of Marcus Mariota from Oregon although I admit he's an awesome quarterback. I have an unfounded yet very real despise for Ohio State so I can't root for them. And need I say anything about Alabama? I have an inbred hatred for that team, and as a Tennessee Volunteers and LSU Tigers fan, there's absolutely no rooting for alabama. That leaves me with Florida State, and because sports experts have put them down almost every week this season and downplayed their success, I want to see them make it. Plus, in the first year of the BCS Championship era, we watched Tennessee defeat Florida State for the national *** ...

So I went to the Stanford game today in Eugene !! For those who watched it - in person or on TV - they know the Ducks ARE "That Good" ; Stanford did not have an off day!! The Ducks are as good - right now - as any team in the Country, and our QB, Marcus Mariota , IS MAGIC. Just a Jr. , but an astoundingly accurate passer, a deceptive ball handler, and runs like a gazelle !!! Our receivers have great hands, and both the offensive and defensive lines have 'jelled'. Wadda' treat to be there and witness this game !!!

Marcus Mariota was among the nation's most prolific quarterbacks each of the last two seasons, leading Oregon to a combined 23-3 record. Yet, consideration for the Heisman Trophy eluded the Ducks playmaker...
The Eagles are in almost perfect shape quarterback wise. Nick Foles right now is the franchise guy, and he only has room to improve. However, if he completely bombs next season and plays nothing like he did last season, then Chip Kelly will draft his dream quarterback, Marcus Mariota. Either way, we are set for the future.
Pac-12 football: National Signing Day perspective (you can thank me later) Here’s the Hotline’s latest annual attempt to keep signing day in perspective. Make no mistake: It matters — it matters a lot. But if your team is No. 42 nationally instead of No. 25 … if it’s No. 6 in the conference instead of No. 4 … don’t panic!!! The class rankings and star system for individual players don’t mean everything, and we see examples every year: *** In 2011, Oregon fans were giddy on NSD when the Ducks landed the west coast’s biggest prize, De’Anthony Thomas, but a 3-star player who had committed seven months earlier proved to be a far more significant signee: Marcus Mariota. *** Had you listed the top prospects in UCLA’s 2011 class, based on stars and position ranking, the top two would undoubtedly have been 5-star tailback Malcolm Jones and 5-star defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa. Several notches down the list: Anthony Barr. *** In 2009, Will Sutton was not the top defensive tackle prospect ...
FSU quarterback and reigning Heisman winner Jameis Winston is projected as the favorite at 2/1 odds to win the Heisman on 2014. Other returning quarterbacks Marcus Mariota (7/2) and Braxton Miller (4/1) are also among the favorites. There are a few under the radar names mentioned, including Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson, who will return to the Fighting Irish after withdrawing from school because of an academic violation.
The other big winners with Derek Mason moving to Vandy? Mark Helfrich, Marcus Mariota and the Oregon Ducks.

At the end of every college football season every player has different reasons for turning pro or returning to school, which include but aren’t limited to: finances, draft stock, degree status, outlook for next season in college, football development, college coaching status or relationship, position depth, college schematics, health, maturity, etc. For most players, it’s not a no-brainer decision. With that in mind, let’s look at a group of notable players who are staying in college and a group who declared early for the NFL and evaluate their decisions. The main factors I considered were draft stock and football development. Returning to school Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA Verdict: Good Call Hundley had a marvelous year, but there is still so much for him to learn at the college level. He has a hard time recognizing coverages, which leads to sacks and the ball being held in the pocket for far too long. His athleticism is as good as any QB's in the country and that will remain next season. He needs to t ...

Where Ohio State's Braxton Miller fits in the 2014 Heisman field with Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota and others
A healthy Marcus Mariota, a full season from Braxton Miller make both Heisman frontrunners in 2014
Already thinking about the Heisman next year. Early list for me. 1. Braxton Miller. 2. Jameis Winston. 3. Marcus Mariota
Chicks dig scars, and pain heals: Keanu Reeves and friends have all used up their eligibility, so the Ducks will have to make do in 2014 with Marcus Mariota, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, and Hroniss Grasu.
Oregon Ducks next year, nine home games and Marcus Mariota coming back ! Is it football season yet !!?? :p
Gotta get it. Marcus Mariota, Hroniss Grasu and Ifo Ekpre-OLomu are back for a new season of the real "Duck Dynasty."

Read down to number 9... for preseason college football rankings. An early top 10 for 2014 Posted by Chris Huston on January 7, 2014, 7:37 AM EST Braxton Miller AP The sun has barely set on the BCS era and, as we speak, Florida State’s Chief Osceola is riding off toward the horizon with the last Crystal Ball tucked carefully under his arm. But now it’s time to take a break from this glorious ending and ponder: What will next season look like? Here’s an early top 10 for 2014: 1. Ohio State – The Buckeyes return the Heisman front runner in Braxton Miller and a ton of other playmakers on both sides of the ball. After going 24-2 in his first two years in Columbus, Urban Meyer finally has the roster in place to win the first national title under the new College Football Playoff system. 2. Oregon – If Miller is the Heisman favorite, Marcus Mariota isn’t too far behind. He returns to lead an explosive Duck offense that should once again wreak havoc on opposing defenses. On the other side of the ball ...
Jordan Barton was named to the NUC All American Game in South Carolina on Dec 30. This game is for the top HS players across the nation (some past participants include the likes of Johnny Manziel and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota). Jordan earned a starting spot for the South All Stars as wide receiver and had 2 catches for 32 yards and a touchdown in the game. Jordan did an awesome job representing LSA!
Just think it's only 232 days until college football starts again and Marcus Mariota wins the Heisman and Oregon kills in the first year of the playoffs.
He thinks Todd Gurley is better than Marcus Mariota and De'Anthony Thomas. Lol

What really *** is that we'll be mediocre, which means we won't be able to draft a Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota.

For those who think Johnny Manziel, Aj McCarron, Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota just to name a few r so good u must remember they have their moments and are just about done but Trevor Knight a red shirt freshmen who has not played the whole year like others but when he has, he has lead his team to victory and rest assured him starting next year will break and set new records. & 4 those who want to trash Stoops and praise Saban . Stoops is the only head coach to win each of the four BCS bowls Orange, Fiesta, Rose & Sugar in comparison Saban has only won the Sugar and Saban only stays with a program while they are doing well or paying him well . I hear TX is looking wondering how much they are offering?
I've heard people saying that A.J. wasn't as good as we thought. That's only because Bama lost the last two games (neither of which were A.J.'s fault. It does take a TEAM EFFORT). Would he have "sucked" if a couple of plays would have happened differently and Bama would have won those games? No...and that's my point exactly. The young man has the best record of any QB to ever play at Alabama and he deserves our respect. I'm sure he will go on to do well in the NFL. Besides...remember this: Marcus Mariota (Oregon's QB) and Bryce Petty (Baylor's QB) also lost a couple of games this year, and no one is saying how bad they "suck".
In your opinion who's more NFL ready. Bryce Petty or Marcus Mariota?
This is a little late but I have Connor Cook listed as in my 2014 Heisman watch. (not that anyone cares about my Heisman watch) tonight I watched a quarterback shred a defense who made both Marcus Mariota and Brett Hundley look bad (2 future first round picks) Very impressed with Mr Cook. looking forward to what the 2014 Spartans have to bring to the table.
Oregon Ducks to the BCS National Championship Game Next seasoN Is TITLE SEASON Marcus Mariota & DeAnthony Thomas are staying there senior year WE going all the way # QUACK ATTACK
Still glad Johnny Manziel never become a Oregon Duck. Marcus Mariota outclasses Manziel by a mile..
After a great bowl game it is clear that Marcus Mariota should be the front runner for the 2014 Heisman Trophy Award.
SAN ANTONIO -- No. 10 Oregon first felt overlooked by the BCS, and then came to the Alamo Bowl overshadowed by Mack Brown's final game at Texas. But the Ducks are flying home with an attention-getting blowout. Quarterback Marcus Mariota had 386 total yards and Oregon returned two interceptions for touchdowns, spoiling Brown's emotional farewell after 16 seasons at Texas with a runaway 30-7 victory Monday night. The BCS-snubbed Ducks (11-2) dominated throughout -- even though their famously high-powered offense scored just one touchdown and repeatedly settled for field goals. Yet the rout didn't seem to completely balm the sting of not playing in a BCS bowl for the first time in five years, with Oregon players after the game still reflecting on their championship hopes derailed by November losses. Oregon coach Mark Helfrich declined to answer whether this season was a success. "That's for you to decide," Helfrich said. "I don't think in those terms. I think of how well we can prepare and what's next." Brow ...
I could tell he was awesome.. but until I saw the stats... wow! Marcus Mariota only had 1 TD and it was a passing TD, but he had 253 yds passing and 133 yds rushing. 386 yds of offense from our QB. I was so glad to see him healthy again! Let's get it next year Ducks! WTD!!
Watched the UT game last night and realized that Marcus Mariota looks like an adult sized Johnny Manziel
Marcus Mariota had more offense and yards then the whole Texas team :) way to go Ducks

Congratulations to the Ducks for winning the Alamo Bowl and also Marcus Mariota for winning the MVP of the game. No one more deserving! What a great game!
OK, Jeff Hamlin ... before you diss my Ducks again, let me give you some facts about my Oregon Ducks, if you care to read facts: •The last time Oregon allowed as few as 7 points in a bowl game was the 1920 Rose Bowl. •Mark Helfrich tied the Pac-12 record for wins by a first-year head coach at 11 with USC's John Robinson (1976) and Stanford's David Shaw (2011). •Oregon set a school record for total offense in a season at 7,345, besting the old mark of 7,319 in 2011, which happened during a 14-game season. •Sophomore QB Marcus Mariota was named the offensive MVP and Senior FS Avery Patterson earned defensive MVP honors. Mariota was also the offensive MVP of the 2013 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. (Jeff ... that's two Bowl MVP's in 1 year!) •With one touchdown, Mariota tied Joey Harrington's Oregon career record for total offensive touchdowns (77). Mariota also passed for at least one score for his 26th straight game. •Mariota finished the season with 4,380 yards of total offense and is the only player in ...
Congratulations to the Universtiy of Oregon football team which ended their 2013 season on a high note as they defeated the Texas Longhorns 30-14 in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. Quarterback Marcus Mariota was the MVP of the game with over 400 yards combined rushing & passing. The defense which had been absent for most of the season finally showed up shutting down the Longhorn offense which previously had run all over Sugar Bowl contestant Oklahoma's defense. This victory was the 11th for the Ducks against 2 losses, which for head coach Mark Helfrich, the successor to Oregon legend Chip Kelly, who went 10-3 in his first year at the helm in 2009. (that was also Helfrich's 1st year with the Ducks as an assistant coach) Not bad for a head coach, who was under the gun all year. Yes, he didn't meet most of our expectations, due to Mariota's injury against UW but hey, 11-2 isn't bad.and it is a mark of excellence! Go Ducks...WIN THE DAY!
Hey Texas! Remember the Alamo... Bowl! Ha ha ha! Go Ducks! Nice end to a frustrating season. My takeaways: - Marcus Mariota is the spirit of Kamehameha reborn. That stud is a total warrior! - The stupid helmet rule (sitting out a play for it coming off) is absurd and needs to be ditched. Such BS. - ACC officials may rival PAC officials for stupidity. How NOBODY threw a flag for Texas trying to lobotomize Oregon's QB through his facemask is baffling. - If there's a Duck of the Year, it should go to Josh Huff. Love Mariota, but Huff showed up in clutch situations when he was needed, every time. Will miss you Huff! - To echo Daniel, seeing defeat visit Texas in any form is incredibly enjoyable. Everything's bigger in Texas! Especially FAILS! :-D And with that, another Duck season comes to an end. Time to fold the flag, store the jerseys and stow the gear until next season. Can't wait! Only nine months 'til Duck season '14!
The Oregon Ducks' 30-7 trouncing of Texas in the Alamo Bowl tonight was no real surprise, given that Vegas pegged the Longhorns as two-touchdown dogs, and that Marcus Mariota is back, iffy knee and all. Mariota finished 18 of 26 for 253 yards and 133 yards rushing, his best overall game since be...
Super Mario: three weeks after being snubbed by the Heisman, only leg cramps could slow down Marcus Mariota at the Alamo Bowl. He accounted for 387 yards and a touchdown in a 30-7 win as the Ducks finish 11-2 and ranked in the Top Ten (Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports).
Ducks WIN ! 30-7 butt-whoop in' on Texas. How classy was Marcus Mariota? He was the first to reach out and pay respects to Mack Brown after the game ended.
Marcus Mariota rolled up 386 total yards of offense with a touchdown pass Monday, powering No. 12 Oregon over Texas 30-7 in the Alamo Bowl.
Ok FB Friends. My 11 year old son and buddies would like to have Marcus Mariota of the Oregon Ducks over for Barbecue in Hood River Oregon, sometime next summer. We have world class grinds, (and I mean, WORLD CLASS) and kiteboarding lessons (Land only, unless someone commits to staying a couple of days) on offer. Any one know of anyone who knows of anyone who might know the Mariotas and team members?
Wasn't to be in the end! :-( the difference was the QB, Marcus Mariota was superb, Case McCoy not so much! :-/ but on the main note,thank you once again Mack and best wishes in the future!\m/
Congratulations to the Oregon Ducks, Alamo Bowl winners and to Marcus Mariota player of the game. Way to go Crusader!
