Vernon Adams Jr. says sitting second half vs. TCU was 'tough'
Former Oregon QB Vernon Adams Jr. lead Oregon to a 31-0 halftime lead against TCU in the Alamo Bowl, before being knocked out of the game with a concussion.
Oregon ended up blowing the 31-point lead and losing 47-41 in triple overtime. How tough was it for Adams to sit on the sidelines and watch the Ducks lose to TCU?
"That was way worse than my finger being broken," said Adams, per ESPN.com. "Just watching us, I don’t know. It was tough. A lot of things just went wrong in the second half. I was just trying to keep the guys up on the sideline and just trying to stay as positive as I can as they were coming back. They were a good team. TCU came back in that second half and they fought. They didn’t give up."
Adams recovered from his injury and competed in the East-West Shrine Game. In the game, Adams completed 6-of-9 passes for 191 yards and three touchdowns and was named MVP.
