Is there a bigger bandwagon fan than rapper Drake?

Jimmy Wheelchair’s love affair with former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was well documented and everyone saw him at the Final Four reppin’ Kentucky. But now that we’re in a new school year, Drake's allegiances have shifted again.

With Manziel gone to the NFL, Drake had to find a new man-crush and Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is the lucky guy.

He only rolls with winners, you know.

Drake wore not one, but two different Mariota jerseys during his concert this past weekend.

I mean, it makes sense. Mariota is the top quarterback in the country right now, he plays for the hottest team and he’s the early leader in the Heisman race. Oh, and Oregon’s uniforms are cool, so there’s that.

While we’re sure Mariota is flattered, I doubt we’ll be seeing him partying it up with Drake and his crew. That doesn’t really seem like Mariota’s scene and we’re sure he’s learned a lot from Manziel’s unwanted publicity and the public outcry that has come with it.

No, Mariota is probably just gonna stick with his yoga and golf classes and leave it at that.

Sadly, Drake will have to be a fan from afar, but don’t be surprised if he ends up on the Oregon sideline if the Ducks make it to the national championship.
