Mariota graces cover of Sports Illustrated, again

By Ferd Lewis

LAST UPDATED: 12:19 p.m. HST, Oct 30, 2013

University of Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated's Nov. 4 issue.

Headlined, "The Colossus", the cover says, "Oregon redefined West Coast football, now it's time to conquer America (they're coming for you, SEC.)"

It is the second time this season he has appeared on the magazine's cover. He was also featured in SI's college football preview issue this summer.

Mariota, a 2011 graduate of Saint Louis School in Honolulu, has led the Ducks to an 8-0 record and No. 2 spot in the national rankings.

The Ducks have an open date this weekend before playing Stanford.

Marcus Mariota is the real deal. Today he turned 20, so he is no longer a teenager. Talk about upside. Happy Birthday and keep on excelling on and off the field.

He is indeed the real deal and at 20 yrs old and one of the best, if not the best, in college football the future is bright as the Hawaiian moonlight for this talented and former St. Louis H.S. Crusader. Stay the course Marcus, you have many fans out there, avoid controversy and you will be rewarded at the end of the season.

Great...being on the cover of SI is already bachi, but they have to go and rile up the SEC, too? Sometimes, the media just doesn't know when to keep things on the DL, but then again, I guess they have to sell their magazines (or newspapers, or TV shows, or whatever). I just hope Mariota and the Ducks can overlook all that stuff and just play football. Stanford might seem like the most difficult team left, but when you're "up there," everyone is gunning for you. It would be really sad if they beat Stanford, then lose to Arizona or whoever else they have left (or worse, lose to Oregon State in the Civil War). I'd really like to see them play Alabama in the NC because Nick Saban has already stated that he thinks hurry-up offenses are not fair. If it's not against the rules, it's FAIR!

Alabama will still smash them if they meet.

He probably will wait until after he gets into the NFL if he's smart and wants to avoid the distractions. :)
