If you are a football player and happen to have walked on at Oregon, you have certain disadvantages. Part of those disadvantages is that you have some major ground to make up between you and scholarship players, generally in skills. Of course that doesn't mean you don't have a chance to succeed, but it does mean that you as the walk on have a lot of work to do. For Matt Mariota, his path to playing football at Oregon might have become a bit easier when a opportunity to play at tight end opened.

Oregon wide receiver Darren Carrington is asked often about how both the offense and defense is looking during spring practice. After all, the senior has been around the program for a long time and has seen the very best of times and the worst. He was the star of the 2015 Rose Bowl where he caught seven passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns, with a long of 56 yards in Oregon 59-20 win over Florida State. Then there was last year when the Ducks finished 4-8.

Oregon's Co-Offensive Coordinator describes the Oregon Ducks as having the "right stuff" and he wouldn't trade them for anything. Often when a new coaching staff takes over as happened this year when the entire staff changed, there is a lot of catching up to do. Sometimes the reaction of the team is less than could be desired. However, this year at Oregon there seems to be a regained step, up beat in enthusiasm and a willingness on the part of the players to strive to become better each day.

A theme that is repeated over and over when talking to Oregon players and coaches is this: Competition. No one is assured a spot on the Oregon Ducks football team. Players, regardless of experience, pre-season hyperbole or accolades is guaranteed playing time if they do not win the job in practice; that is Oregon Head Coach Willie Taggart's policy and is accepted by every coach and player that calls themselves a Duck.
