Former Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams issued his support for the Ducks amid quarterback concerns.
Vernon Adams took to Twitter to show love and support for his former team, the Oregon Ducks:
Stop sleeping on the Ducks. They're gona be fine. I'm not Marcus, Dakota isn't Marcus. He's the ? but That era is over. Trust coach Helf ✊?
— Vernon Adams Jr. (@vadams_qb) September 21, 2016
In the tweet Adams is referring to former Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota as the “GOAT.”Adams preached for people not to compare Dakota Prukop to Marcus Mariota and issued his support for coach Mark Helfrich. Prukop, a graduate transfer from Montana State, threw for over 5,500 yards and 46 touchdowns with the Bobcats.
Oregon sits at 2-1 on the season and is coming off of its first loss of the season at the hands of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Prukop struggled in the loss, completing 14-of-23 passes for 146 yards and zero touchdowns and rushed for 97 yards on 20 carries. Nebraska won the matchup 35-32.
We’re only three games into the college football season, so now might not be the time to panic.
The Ducks face their first conference opponent of the season this week as they play host to the Colorado Buffaloes.
