Yeah but people talk about Mariota like he's going to bring that 600 yards of total offense a game with him to the pros.
I'm just not in favor of QBs declaring after only two years of starting when they still have eligibility left. Unless we're talking about Manziel.
Oregon's scheme is not driven by Mariota's playmaking ability. I don't even know if he's the most valuable offensive player on their squad.
