Oregon's QB battle awaits Vernon Adams and Jeff Lockie

It's the question that's likely to define Oregon's 2015 season: Whom will be the starting at QB come September 5? With all due respect to Oregon's stable of QBs, there are only two choices: junior QB Jeff Lockie and incoming graduate transfer Vernon Adams Jr. It's easy enough to whittle the numbers down to two, but choosing whom will take the first snap for the Ducks come September...

Good Luck Vernon Adams, You’re Behind An 8-Ball Of Experience

Vernon Adams is Oregon’s next starting quarterback. Well, that’s what popular opinion and conventional wisdom suggest based on the much ballyhooed decision by Adams to leave Eastern Washington and enroll at the University of Oregon.  But while outsiders believe the aforementioned to be set in proverbial stone, logic and a quality showing at last Saturday’s spring game might...

Ducks cap great spring with the Jeff Lockie show, Mariota tribute

 Vernon Adams has talent and charisma, but Jeff Lockie showed poise and focus in his 3-touchdown, 9-9 performance in yesterday’s Oregon Spring Game (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images) The last four Oregon quarterbacks produced outstanding results that the experts didn’t seem coming.

Lockie takes the reigns at Oregon

It is one of the most anticipated QB battles this year: Jeff Lockie versus Vernon Adams Jr. for the right to replace 2014 Heisman winner Marcus Mariota. While Adams won't be in Eugene until the middle of June, which is when he graduates from Eastern Washington, Lockie has been running the show for the Ducks this spring. Lockie, who has served as Mariota's backup for each of the...

Oregon football: Previewing the QB position

Football teams usually carry over 50 players on a roster and have 22 different starters, but sometimes one star player can impact the program for years. One stud can come in as a freshman and be the savior of a struggling program but just as quickly, the departure of an important player can leave a program scrambling to find a replacement that can replicate that level of production...

Jeff Lockie, nobody’s favorite to win the starter’s job, embodies the best of the Oregon tradition

In a just world, Jeff Lockie would get more credit. Most websites, including this one, have already typed in Vernon Adams as the Ducks likely starting quarterback in 2015, and elevated the first post-Mariota version of the team to title contenders after adding the dynamic Eastern Washington dual threat with the scrappy pocket presence and infectious TV timeout dance moves. Adams...

In 2014, Ducks may need a backup qb for something more than sign duty

Jeff Lockie appeared in 9 games last year and Jake Rodrigues 7, and neither had a moment or a series that made you say, that guy is the quarterback of the future. Rodrigues came closest. On his first carry from scrimmage against Nicholls State, he ran a perfectly executed Zone-Read keep, scooting for 28 yards around the right side. He finished the drive with a 23-yard scoring...
