Last Friday, Oregon held its spring game draft with captains Marcus Mariota and Hroniss Grasu (team "Mariasu") and Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and Tony Washington (team "Twifo") selecting their teams. Props to Oregon for letting players pick teams and for allowing them to buy into the celebrity name mashing trend.
Coach Mark Helfrich has promised this spring scrimmage will be a recognizable game. The first half will have clock stoppages, but the second half have a running clock. The first half also will have punts, punt returns, kickoffs and kickoff returns, while the second half will just have special teams taking the field for field goals and extra points. Redshirt freshman Connor Johnson will be the long snapper for both teams, as he’s the only LS on the Ducks’ roster.
