Kevin Gemmell All players are equal, but some players are more equal than others. That's the basis of our Most Important Player series.First off, quarterbacks are excluded to make things more interesting. It goes without saying, for example, that Oregon's Marcus Mariota is the Ducks' most important player.And most important doesn't necessarily have to be "best."
