EUGENE, Ore. (AP)—Darron Thomas will be No. 11 Oregon’s starting quarterback for the opener against New Mexico, taking over the Ducks after the dismissal of Jeremiah Masoli.

Thomas has been competing for the job against senior Nate Costa throughout fall camp. While Costa is more of a traditional passer, Thomas is more of a threat on the ground, much like Masoli.

Thomas, a 6-3, 212-pound sophomore, played in five games as a true freshman in 2008, completing 16 of 33 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns.

Called on when Oregon was hit by a slew of injuries, Thomas came close, but just missed on leading the Ducks to a come-from-behind victory at home against Boise State that season. The Broncos won 37-32.

He redshirted the 2009 season.

“I feel like I’m ready to go,” Thomas said when Oregon opened camp. “I hope it’s my time. I’ve been out here two years and gotten comfortable with the offense and I’m just building confidence.”

Speakin' of Ducks QB's, Dennis Dixon has looked pretty sharp in the pre-season - gonna be tough for the Steelers to justify starting the veteran Delhomme over him while Big Ben is out. I'd like to see the kid get a shot at the job!

Let me just start with this -WOW!

I know it was a cupcake match-up and that the only real negative i saw was the fact Thomas refused to throw the deep ball. I heard rumors that Oregon was going to be fast. I had no idea they were going to be that fast... Linebackers were keeping up with WR's Linemen were keeping up with TE's it was just rediculous! I am really excited to see this team against a real team like say Tennessee? If they can not become complacent i think their is a very good chance we could see another blow out. I thought it was interesting that we always ran to the short side of the field. Anyway those are my thoughts for now. Man Football is Back! I love it!

Oregon to play LSU to open the season in 2011. Sweet! I like the aggressive scheduling, I'm okay with one Nevada or a New Mexico on the schedule, but I'm not okay with a Portland State being on there at all. The 2011-12 non conference schedule looks challenging but pretty good for Oregon strength wise, playing Nevada at home, Utah away, and LSU on a "neutral field" to open the season. Getting SC, Cal, and Oregon St. at home too next season is awesome...obviously the Ducks have unfinished business this season but I predict big things next season. :-)
