A year ago, most of us were almost certain that Bryan Bennett would be the starting quarterback for the Oregon Ducks.
Instead Bennett, a redshirt sophomore, was defeated by redshirt freshman Marcus Mariota in last year’s quarterback competition to decide the replacement for Darron Thomas.
Now, there is no doubt in anyone's mind that Mariota should not be the starter, delegating Bennett to the bench, except in certain situations.
Bennett, however, is just too talented of an athlete for the Ducks, and new head coach Mark Helfrich, to keep off the field. Bennett has no future at quarterback with Oregon, so that means the Tarzana, Calif., native is going to need a position change.
