The biggest news that came out of the Oregon’s spring football practice ( 13th overall ) on Monday was running back Kenjon Barner admitting he’s paired with sophomore QB Bryan Bennett for Saturday’s annual spring football game. Big news considering the media and fans haven’t been allowed to watch one snap of practice since drills began 3 weeks ago.
With Barners revelation, it can only be surmised freshman QB Marcus Mariota and speedster De’Anthony Thomas will play together on the opposite team. Now, if that doesn’t get your spring football blood moving, I don’t know what will. Of course, the official rosters of the green and white teams won’t be announced until after Wednesday’s final spring practice, that announcement coming from head coach Chip Kelly after Monday’s workout.
For those of us, and that means every media member and Duck fan throughout the State of Oregon, we’ve been unable to take a peek at Oregon’s 2012 squad since practice sessions are closed. That alone adds to the intrigue and excitement of this years annual spring game which kicks off at 11am on Saturday in Autzen Stadium.
Running back Kenjon Barner discusses his progress after three weeks of drills and looks forward to taking on the Oregon defense on Saturday April 28th.
