The Oregon Ducks labored trying to find balance on the field when Jeremiah Masoli was knocked out of the game after vicious shot in the first quarter. The Ducks tried to depend solely on Chris Harper's running ability and his sore arm to carry them along but it was clear Oregon was falling into a deep hole with no lifeline in sight. In fact, the picture looked so bleak it had everyone wondering what would happen to the rest of the year.
Finally Thomas made his first appearance of his career and came out gunning. Basically in one quarter Thomas was 13-for-25, 210 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
"The considerations and concerns were his overall knowledge and the number of reps he had taken," said Oregon Head Coach Mike Bellotti on why Thomas was not put in earlier in the game. "He had been a scout team quarterback up until Monday, but he had shown tremendous improvement and I felt very comfortable and we just didn't get him in the game soon enough."
After a performance like he gave in the fourth quarter Thomas no doubt will be seeing a lot more repetitions in practice next week.
