Was it Thompson?

Perhaps it was simply some Beaver fans having some fun at Oregon fans' expense or was it for real? eDuck Sports has heard directly from the man himself, Justin Thompson about exactly what was the story with the alleged photo of him at last Saturday's Oregon State-Hawaii game.

"No sir that was not me," replied Thompson to a message regarding him being at the Oregon State-Hawaii game. "I'm still in LA."

There was a slight uproar in the world of Oregon football when a photo was posted on eDuck's Open Season that claimed Thompson was at Reeser Stadium last Saturday when the Beavers played Hawaii. The person in the photo was decked out in Beaver paraphernalia sitting.

eDuck even asked Oregon Head Coach Mike Bellotti for his thoughts about Thompson being at the game. Bellotti quipped "at least he's closer than LA."

Bellotti later looked at the photo but wasn't wearing his glasses so he was unsure if it was Thompson. Besides, the Oregon headman had something a little more high priority at the moment -- preparing for the Boise State Broncos this Saturday at Autzen Stadium.

Had we known that the photo was not of Thompson, we wouldn't have wasted Coach Bellotti's time and to that we apologize to him for bringing it up.

The other question we asked Thompson is if he is still planning on attending Oregon. The answer?

"And yes I'im still attending Oregon."

The Oregon coach did say that Thompson is dealing with academic issues so the final answer of when Thompson will enroll is still unknown.
