Marcus Mariota on goals, pressure and preparation

In this video from Comcast Sports NW, Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota talks about the team’s response to pressure and expectations, stating very directly that the goal is to win the conference and compete for the national championship. He praises the team’s effort in fall camp.

What’s most striking in the video in how comfortable he looks in the spotlight. It still isn’t his favorite thing, but he handles it in a genuine and even-keeled way.
