True, but his injury also played a factor. Still, it is cool, just like what Manning did when he was in college.

Re: Degree was big factor in Marcus Mariota passing up NFL draft

"A lot of things played into it. First and foremost, I wanted to get my degree. My family has always valued my education. My major (general sciences) factored into me coming back," Mariota said Wednesday at Pac-12 Media Days. "Secondly I just wanted to come back and enjoy college. You experience so many things and I wasn't ready to leave that yet."
Thats quite refreshing to hear. I'm officially a Marcus Mariota fan.
