Keeping up with Vernon Adams

The media frenzy has slackened only a little following Vernon Adams Jr's announcement to leave EWU and play at Oregon. For example, Adams tells CBS that his former Eagle teammates were "butt-hurt" (whatever that means) by his decision.... From NBC, a report that Adams - and not Braxon Miller of Ohio State - was Oregon's first choice to replace Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota. ... Fox sent a crew for this feature story,  which includes this 33-minute audio of Adams discussing a variety of topics. .... Of course, Adams isn't guaranteed anything at Oregon, which returns a few other QBs who hope to succeed Mariota.
