@Eisenhower_1952Won't be back. Caddy doesn't see him as an SEC caliber RB per JLee.

Two months ago the big word on this message board was that MAR was a great talent that was horribly under utilized by Gus. Now this! What's a person to believe these days?

It is always fun getting conflicting info from multiple places and sources. I remember in the spring and summer last year, based on info coming out I expected MAR to be in the top 2 of the rotation to start the season. Then we never saw him. 

I will say this. With the limited carries he got, I thought he showed great potential and looked capable of being an SEC back. Of course, that was only a handful of reps in mostly garbage time, but still. If Caddy says differently....I have to take his word on it for now.

I thought he did pretty well what few chances he got this year but his YPC seems low on his stat sheet.

EUGENE — Oregon will have a new starting quarterback in 2021.

Tyler Shough, who started all seven games for the Ducks and led the Pac-12 in passer efficiency in 2020, announced he’s entering the transfer portal.

“I would like to thank my coaches at Oregon for the opportunity and many lessons learned these past three years,” Shough wrote via Twitter. “Huge thank you to the fans and Eugene community for welcoming me here and making this place special.”

Shough thanked coaches, staff and trainers, and added: “Thank you to my teammates and brothers for making this place a home. I will forever cherish the bonds we have built together. Once a Duck, always a Duck. I am trusting in the Lord, and excited to announce that I will be entering the transfer portal as a grad transfer with three more years of eligibility.”

Shough went 106 for 167 (63.5%) for 1,559 yards with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions in 2020, his first season as a starter after serving as Justin Herbert’s backup in 2019. He also led the Pac-12 in passer efficiency at 160.38 and had 66 carries for 271 yards and two scores.

The redshirt sophomore’s play regressed from November to December, though. He went from completing 65.8% of his passes with a 170.31 efficiency rating (16th nationally) in Oregon’s first four games to 58% with a 137.17 efficiency rating (46th nationally) in the final three games.

Shough was just 7 of 9 for 79 yards with a late interception in the Fiesta Bowl, when he started the game by going 3 for 3 for 41 yards but was benched in favor of Anthony Brown and didn’t reappear until late in the third quarter.

After the Fiesta Bowl, Shough said he was “not sure how to interpret” being benched after his opening drive and a one-play drive that resulted in a fumble, but that he was “hungrier than ever” and maintained that he would return to UO to compete for the starting job during the winter and spring practice.

“I’m going to take what’s right in front of me and keep working hard,” Shough said Jan. 2. “There’s obviously no decision that’s being made. I’m going to control what I can control and work hard the entire offseason. I’m going to keep proving myself. It seems like a lot of people are going to keep doubting me, and I’m going to keep showing them what I can do and keep proving myself right, because I know my abilities and I know I can help and do for this team.”

Oregon’s quarterback room is now down to four: Brown, who was 15 of 24 for 164 yards with two touchdowns and had seven carries for 40 yards and two scores last season and was a three-year starter at Boston College; second-year freshmen Jay Butterfield and Robby Ashford; and true freshman Ty Thompson, the highest-rated QB signee in program history.

 

Hmm. Can play immediately, 3 yrs remaining, Won Pac12 last year.  This works.  Bring him in.

It can take backs a few carries to get into a rhythm. I thought he played well in the IB. He had a few good reps that showed what he can do once he gets going. I have a feeling he will be one that we actually regret losing unlike many of the others.

He is the type I would like to see us go after though. Power 5 starting experience. Come in and either win the job or at the very least push Bo to be better. Do you know if the staff is after a QB tranfer?

I suppose there is one answer for all 22 positions plus specialists: "It will depend on if we can find one that will help us".

Wonder what coaches Harsin and Bobo thinks about the Oregon QB who plans to transfer.

Look about 6 posts above yours.

Not based on any knowledge but I have a gut the feeling from reading between the lines that the staff is done at RB. I am assuming they want Dylan Brookes and he will eventually come here. After that 1st priority which everybody agrees on is OT that can play next year 1-2, Then a CB, then an ILB.   I also think they are only looking for players with immediate eligibility and who will be impact players. So they may save 1 or 2 scholarships for next year especially since the new incoming Long Snapper will probably be given a scholly in the 2022 class.

Next year if NCAA finalizes the new Rule for one immediate transfer you may start seeing schools taking smaller classes during normal signing periods so they can pick up proven players in transfer. I think that would start in the 2023 class but not for the bama type who can still do full classes with top rated players. I think the new rule will hurt some of the HS players who might have gotten into a Power 5 School as teams may not opt to take a chance on them. You won't see as many diamond in the rough types at Power 5 Schools because of going for transfers.

@AuburnNTexas They aren't done at RB unless they don't find a transfer they like. Harsin definitely wants a 5th RB on roster.

Staff is prioritizing 2 OL transfers.

They aren't planning to save intentionally. If we have 1 or 2 extra schollies for next year then the staff did not land or find quality transfers at positions of need for this year.

No but you'll see kids balling out at lower levels then transferring up to P5s more.

If this kid were to transfer to Auburn I'm sure it would be with understanding that the position is open for competition.  No promises but open nonetheless. Interesting.....
