Student-Athlete Marcus Mariota spends his free time playing quarterback for the Oregon Ducks football team when he is not hitting the books. And what subjects will he be focused on this fall: Golf and Yoga.

Mariota surprised many when he announced he would be returning to Eugene for one more season as a redshirt junior. The Heisman hopeful actually grabbed his degree last spring and has no more course requirements to fulfill, so he had the flexibility to take whichever classes he wanted.

It would be easy to mock Mariota or Oregon for the light course load, but there is always the chance that he is taking the classes for his graduate dissertation, "Pastimes of the Idle Rich".
