Hey y'alls Arkansas has found a coach!

Good news: He's a coach and an internet sensation!

Bad news: He went 3-9 against major rivals at his last hitch, including 0-4 against his biggest.

Worse news: He's this guy.

From the Oregon Spring game:

Marcus Mariota

18-26, 202yrds passing, 1TD, 1INT and 100yrds rushing, 2TDs and 1 Sack

Byran Bennett

19-32, 209yrds passing, 1TD, 2INT and 27yrds rushing and 3 sacks

Mariotta's side won 41-14

Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a winner.

Thanks for the info, we were all dying to know who Oregon's next starting QB would be.

Well, considering it's been probabley the most looked at QB battle in the nation, I would say that is important news. Oregon isn't irrelevent anymore.

I would say this is big news. Probabley just as important as Georgias, or Floridas. Actually, probabley more important, considering Oregon is actually going to be competitive.

That tells me we're really short on QB battles because Oregon's a system team at this point. Just plug and play.

If it was plug and play, then Jermiah Masoli would have the same level of stats that Thomas had, and Blount would have similar stats to LaMichael. It isn't entirely a system.

Oregon's not plug-n-play.

And my bold prediction is that they'll start sliding back into 8- or 9-win seasons. Chip Kelly's offense was pretty inspired the first few seasons, but defensive coordinators are catching on. Also, the teams which have given Oregon headaches (LSU, Wisconsin, Stanford, USC) have all done so with big roadgraders on the line and a punishing running attack.

Oregon's biggest advantage - overall team speed - comes at the cost of bulk. Big hogmollies have shown that you can push them around if you have the size.

There's definitely no QB battle at UGA. Murray is the starter for sure.

Also, which Oregon QB was playing the first team D?

Oregon beat those teams.

And I think we're going to be a different offense this year. Both QBs have the potential to rush for over 1000 yards, and we're going to have a better receiving core, which leads me to think that this team will be BETTER than last years team. Mariota will take the nation by storm next year.

I believe Mariota. Although considering we play 25 men on defense, there really isn't a defined 1st and 2nd team.

You sure Oregon beat USC last year?

Not last year, but they've beaten them 2 out of the 3 years Kelly has been there, with last years coming down to the wire. I don't think Oregon has trouble with big players, they have trouble with fast defenses. However, I think if Oregon can get a better receiving core, that issue will be resolved, as that will free up their running game, which is their strength.

Doesn't everyone?

True, but Oregon doesn't always have the size that could potentially counter that.

That being said, I think it's rediculous when people say "LOOK HOW LSU EXPOSED OREGON'S OFFENSE!". First of all, we scored that most points on them for the entire year. Secondly, they had probabley the best defense in the nation (if they had a decent offense, they would've won the title). They "exposed" everyone but Alabama. If anything, Oregon proved they can score on these elite defenses (ethey really need to work on playing well in the season opener).
