Not everybody is excited about Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota joining the Titans this year. A young Oregon fan was devastated to learn that his favorite quarterback won't be returning to the Ducks this season, and it was all caught on video.
The child was eating his cereal when he was asked about Mariota's potential replacements. "I want Marcus Mariota to come back," he responds, erupting in tears.
A few hours later, Marcus Mariota himself responded with a video addressing three-year-old Clive Johnson. "Hey Clive," Mariota said. "Sorry I won't be heading back to Oregon...I know the Ducks will do a fine job so you don't have to worry about that."
Mariota gave the boy a Titans jersey and said he hopes he'll become both a Ducks and a Titans fan.
