Heisman Trophy Watch List (Week 4)

  1. Marcus Mariota (Oregon) Mariota keeps his No.1 spot with a nail biting victory over Washington St in Pullman. Oregon’s o-line has some question marks to say the least but Mariota is the best player in the country and showed it time after time Saturday. Mariota went 21 of 25 with 329 yards and 5 touchdowns in a offensive shootout. 2. Todd Gurley (Georgia) When you when 66...

Grace under pressure: as he entered the tunnel after the game he patted an equipment manager on the shoulder and gave the crowd a “Hang Loose” sign. Marcus Mariota is the best quarterback in college football, and it isn’t even close (James Snook-USA TODAY Sports photo.) Turns out Aaron Fentress was right. The Ducks do have serious flaws, but as long as they have Marcus Mariota...

Heisman Watch: Ranking Top 10 Contenders entering Week 4

The first three weeks of the 2014 college football season are in the books and the Heisman Trophy race is already starting to take shape. It’s obviously still early and most of the Top 25 teams have faced off against cupcake competition, but Heisman campaigns are fed in the first month of the season when star players at skill positions often feast on less-than-impressive non-conference...

The one thing missing from the Oregon offense

Unjinxable: Marcus Mariota is this week’s Sports Illustrated cover boy, in a story that highlights his NFL prospects. Right now he leads a Duck offense that keeps getting better. They bury you with a surge. Last Saturday the Oregon Ducks reeled off 41 straight points, after erupting for 28 unanswered the week before to close out Michigan State. Against Wyoming  they cranked out 263...

Vine: Oregon’s Marcus Mariota Goes Airborne, Flips Into The End Zone For A Touchdown

Marcus Mariota is awesome. The Oregon quarterback and Heisman Trophy hopeful’s career is full of great moments, and he added another one to his highlight reel today. The Ducks are hosting Wyoming, and midway through the second quarter, Mariota ran for a touchdown.

Oregon Football: Ducks start 2-0. What’s next moving forward?

The Ducks now have three straight seasons being ranked in the top 5 following a 2-0 start. Starting isn’t Oregon’s problem. Their problem is finishing.

A Little Grit, A Lot Of Mariota, And The Oregon Ducks Launch Their National Title Bid

Every team, every coach, every star, Heisman-contending quarterback needs a game to bring people to their feet. Sure, I was saying all week that I thought Oregon would beat Michigan State. I said it sitting down. On the bus, at the dinner table, on the soccer field – the Ducks should win this game. It’s at Autzen after all. But believe me when I tell you I wasn’t screaming...
