Kid asks Helfrich if Mariota is staying at Oregon

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Following the No. 3 Ducks' victory over Colorado, a 12-year-old boy asked coach Mark Helfrich if quarterback Marcus Mariota was going to stay at Oregon for his senior year. When Helfrich prodded the young reporter, he said there are just a few things that matter at O'Hara Catholic School in Eugene. ''There's Jesus, there's girls and there's Marcus Mariota,'' Charlie...

Video: Oregon Releases A ‘Go Get It’ Hype Video For Its Game vs. Colorado

Oregon, at 9-1, has won five straight games – nearly all of which came in blowout fashion – and is possibly the hottest team in the country.  The No. 2-ranked Ducks will look to continue their streak of impressive victories when it hosts Colorado at Autzen Stadium this afternoon. It’s senior day and probably redshirt junior quarterback Marcus Mariota’s final home game, too...

Mariota is Oregon’s all-time greatest, but Gordon is going to steal the Bronze Doorstop

Speed trap: no one races out of the pocket with more fluidity than Marcus Mariota, but the success and balance of the Oregon team might work against him in the Heisman race. He’ll probably sit early in a blowout Saturday (Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports photo). Just coincidence? Marcus Mariota got his speeding ticket in a Nissan Cube, and Nissan is the official sponsor of the Heisman...

Oregon Football: Marcus Mariota’s Heisman chances

The Pacific Northwest hasn’t had a player win the Heisman trophy since 1962, when Oregon State’s Terry Baker won the award, but this could be the year the trophy returns to the region. The Oregon football program has had Heisman contenders before; Joey Harrington (aka Joey Heisman) was a finalist in 2001 where he finished fourth in the voting, and Dennis Dixon in 2007 was leading...

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota in Trouble With the Law?

For the last couple years Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota has been an absolute joy to watch play. From what we hear via social media and the news he's a pretty good kid too. We know that mostly because we don't hear about him in the media too often because he is not one of the many idiots that get in trouble with the law.That is, until now. Marcus Mariota has had a brush...

Marcus Mariota gets speeding ticket for doing 80 in a 55

Better start moving Marcus Mariota down those draft boards because of obvious character concerns. The Oregon star quarterback was ticketed last week for speeding after being clocked doing 80 mph in a 55-mph zone. Mariota faces a $260 fine, which can be reduced.

Oregon football: Reacting to Week 13 CFP rankings

Being number one is nice­, and while I was certainly hoping that would be where the Ducks fell following Mississippi State’s defeat, such a position includes a significant amount of added pressure and only increases the target on a team’s back. This time last week, the Mississippi State Bulldogs had been resting comfortably as the number one seed in college football and was...
