Joey Holland FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 6 Comments

The quarterback may fill the most important role on the football field, but he is nothing without his wide receivers. That said, there is perhaps no receiving corps in the nation feeling more pressure than that of the Oregon Ducks, in the wake of Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota’s departure to the NFL.

Steven Jackson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

We don’t yet know who will be throwing passes for the Ducks come fall, whether it be Vernon Adams, Jr. or Jeff Lockie, or even someone else, but we do know who will be catching them.
