Oregon Ducks (aka U of Nike)

    E. Washington releases statement on Oregon QB transfer target

    Wednesday, reports surfaced that not only was Vernon Adams a potential transfer target for Oregon, but that the star FCS quarterback was a near-lock to move on to the Ducks.

    A day later, EWU has addressed the Adams situation. Sort of.

    While not specifically mentioning his name, EWU released a statement Thursday acknowledging “n the current situation that has arisen recently, we have granted the ability for our student-athlete to explore what opportunities may exist.” That student-athlete is, of course, Adams.

    Adams will graduate from EWU this spring, and would thus be eligible to play immediately for UO in 2015. Given the fact that Marcus Mariota‘s early departure has created an experience (and talent) void at the position, and given Adams’ level of talent — he threw for over 400 yards against both Washington and Oregon State the past two seasons — there would be a very good chance that Adams could line up under center as the starter for the Ducks’ season opener.

    And Oregon’s opponent Sept. 5? Eastern Washington, the team for whom the two-time Walter Payton Award finalist totaled 100 touchdowns the past two seasons. Based on the fact that they’d have to face the star right out of the gate, not many would begrudge EWU if they took a hardline stance on an Adams transfer to UO.

    To their credit, EWU has shown that they’re putting the interests of the student-athlete ahead of the football program, which is a refreshing change regardless of the level.

    Star FCS QB Vernon Adams will reportedly visit Oregon

    With Heisman winner Marcus Mariota leaving his remaining eligibility on the table and moving on to the NFL, UO will conduct a quarterback competition beginning this spring. The way it stands now, Jeff Lockie will enter spring as the front-runner, with competition being provided by redshirt freshmen Taylor Alie and California product Ty Griffin, true freshman Morgan Mahalak and 2015 early signee and four-star recruit Travis Waller. There have also been rumors that Braxton Miller has an interest in transferring to the Ducks, although that talk has waned of late.

    So are we about to see the creation of a minor league in college football? JC transfers are one thing, but this is a whole new level.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Still waiting for Sweatshop Phil to make his $1B donation that he had all over the news in response to a newspaper article about him doing little to advance Oregon as a university for all his athletic donations. Supposedly, he and the university have been bringing up this one beeeeelion dollar donation since 1997 every time someone writes an article critical of his emphasis on athletics, yet it has never actually materialized.

    Just wondering - I'm guessing more money was lost betting on Alabama than on Oregon. Once the Bucks dominated Alabama in the second and fourth quarters I was sure they would roll the Ducks.
  7. On the game itself I'm sure you're right. On the result of the game it was OSU beating Oregon that was the most costly. I heard futures killed Vegas. Getting OSU at 40-1 and 50-1 early in the season.

    What's futures? You bet at the start of the season on who you think is gonna win it all or ?

    You could have tipped off all the sportswriters at ESPN. Something like 42 of 43 were picking the Ducks a week out. That shifted some closer to the game....

    I'm betting some bookies in Bristol took a nice weekend to the Caribbean.
  10. Yep. And really it's throughout the season. But when braxton went down it went to 40-1 and after VT I think 50-1

    If you were referring to Vernon Adams, then this is no different than any other graduate transfer, provided Adams does indeed graduate from EMU in the spring as scheduled...
