If Vernon Adams is serviceable...holy shit

If Vernon is able to pick up everything quickly (he's missing 3 days of camp, but that honestly shouldn't be much of a problem) then Oregon is going to be SCARY. We already have so many weapons on offense and a steady defense that is great with the "bend, don't break." The only big question I have is our offensive line. We lost a lot and I'm sure the next ones up will surely do well, but what happens if we suffer all the front injuries that we did last year? There is a lot less depth and a lot less experience than we had before. It's going to be interesting.

Even if Vernon doesn't get that starting job, Lockie knows the system better than anyone on the team. He has been working under Mariota for the last couple years and he knows what the plays and system are like. He looked awesome in the Spring Game so hopefully that translates to the season. I'm also pretty excited to what Travis Jonsen will look like and be able to do.

I'm obviously not as nervous a a lot of Oregon fans are with us losing Mariota.

I don't think they'll be "scary" but I don't think anyone will be "scary". I think that word is incredibly overused. But yes, I do think Oregon is poised to have a good year. The "bend don't break" defense is finicky but if it works it can mititage a lot of defensive liabilities.
