Tom Borchers of the Springfield Police Department.

EUGENE, Ore. — Nothing seems rushed about Marcus Mariota. Not the way he emerges from practice on a drizzly morning and says "Hello. " Certainly not the way he answers a reporter's questions, taking a moment to think, his words unhurried. "I give all the credit to my lifestyle back home," he says. "Anybody who can relate to being from Hawaii . . . that's what the mentality is. " But the laid-back 19-year-old from Honolulu also happens to play quarterback at Oregon, which puts him at the helm of college football's most frenetic offense.

In another surprising twist to a monthlong saga, Mississippi quarterback Jeremiah Masoli has been cleared to play football one day before the start of the season. Three days ago, the NCAA ruled that the former Oregon quarterback had to sit out a season after enrolling at Mississippi. But the university appealed that decision and announced Friday that the NCAA Division I Subcommittee for Legislative Relief had overturned the first ruling. Masoli is expected to be the Rebels' starting quarterback this season, though Coach Houston Nutt said sophomore Nathan Stanley will start against Jacksonville State on Saturday because of the short notice.

Darron Thomas may have ended the year as an exclamation point in Oregon's "blur" offense, but back in August he was a different punctuation: "I was the question mark," Thomas said Thursday. This was not an Oregon state secret. Faith in the Ducks wobbled after quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, the magnificent magician who led last season's Rose Bowl run, was dismissed from the team by Coach Chip Kelly. What now? Oregon went from a sure top-five preseason pick to a noncommittal No. 11 in both major polls.

Duck. Duck. Whoosh. Those bright flashes dancing through Arroyo Seco this afternoon will not be the traditional winter sun, but Oregon kids on the run. That chill whipping through the Pasadena trees will not be the familiar winter breeze, but Ohio kids on their knees. Cover up, bundle up, heads up, the Rose Bowl is about to become Ohhhs Bowl, thousands of mouths open in wonder, shaped like the letter that symbolizes the team about to capture breaths and steal hearts and make the battered Pacific 10 Conference whole again.

There are two burning questions surrounding No. 13 Oregon's visit to the Rose Bowl for a game against UCLA on Saturday. Who will be the Ducks' quarterback? What kind of fashion disaster will they be wearing as uniforms? Times staff writer Chris Foster looks at the key matchups and issues. Trying to making a point The Pacific 10 Conference's top offense comes to town and that means . . . absolutely nothing. Sure, Oregon averages 34 points and rolled 94 points the last two games, but that was with the nimble Jeremiah Masoli directing the spread offense.

The Times' Chris Dufresne unveils his preseason college football top 25, one day (and team) at a time. No. 9 Oregon Oregon edged USC by four points for the top spot in this year's Pacific 10 Conference preseason football media poll. The off-season Sears Cup for distractions race was just as close. The Ducks, who ended the Trojans' seven-year run as conference champions last year, extended the battle into a postseason war of headlines. USC took home the crown by hiring Lane Kiffin, going on NCAA probation and replacing its football and baseball coaches, as well as its athletic director and university president.

Think about just how crazy this is: Oregon started the year looking for a new quarterback after star Jeremiah Masoli was kicked off the team and landed all the way in Mississippi after violating Coach Chip Kelly's two-strike law. And now the Ducks are going to be No. 1 in the polls? Boise State started the season ranked in the top five, but everyone knew it would have to navigate a rat's maze of booby traps to overcome the politics of being a former junior college from a potato state.

We've only just passed the halfway point in college football's extended Labor Day weekend, and Oregon already has scored 72. You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so we hope you were impressed: — No. 6 Texas Christian gave No. 3 Boise State — and the nation — something to think about Saturday with its 30-21 win over No. 24 Oregon State. Boise State must now beat No. 10 Virginia Tech on Monday night or else TCU becomes the "little guy" with a legitimate chance to make a BCS title run. — It wasn't supposed to happen like this, but Hawaii Coach Greg McMackin and USC Coach Lane Kiffin both had same concerns coming out of Thursday night's Honolulu lulu.

Stuart Appleby hit golf's magic number Sunday, shooting a 59 to win the Greenbrier Classic at White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Appleby's 11-under-par round put him at 22 under, giving him a one-stroke victory to end a four-year winless drought. Third-round leader Jeff Overton (67) narrowly missed a long birdie try on the par-three 18th that would have forced a playoff. Appleby is the fifth PGA Tour player to reach the milestone. The Australian's round came less than a month after Paul Goydos had a 59 at the John Deere Classic.

A shift in UCLA's philosophy on offense, with the Bruins testing a no-huddle, quick-read attack this spring, has its roots in Oregon. The Ducks' deception-heavy offensive scheme has made them one of the top rushing teams in the nation. That success led the Bruins' coaching staff to work on an offense patterned in part after Nevada's "pistol," which is similar to Oregon's scheme. "When we look at statistics and see who the best running teams are, it's not hard thing to figure out that the quarterback is involved," UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel said.
