OL or walk-ons. Who's happier about unlimited meals? Helfrich has the answer

Coaches, scholarship players, and walk-on's everywhere scored big when the NCAA announced earlier this week that NCAA Division I athletes can receive unlimited meals and snacks during the season

KEZI 9 News, who does a great job covering Oregon football, posed an interesting question the other day after practice. They asked a handful of players; What group of players were more excited about the food rule change, offensive lineman or the walk-ons?

Of course the walk-ons deflected and said the offensive lineman were the happiest, and the big fellas said that the walk-ons were the happiest, and they were happy that they could all now break bread together regularly...but head coach Mark Helfrich nailed it with his answer.
