Oregon QB Darron Thomas Got a Little Testy With the Oregon Media

When video of the Cliff Harris 118-mph speeding ticket showed up online earlier this week, Ducks’ fans were upset to learn that QB Darron Thomas was in the backseat. (And that the car reeked of marijuana.) Not a good look for the program. Coach Chip Kelly, who is struggling to deal with a brutal off-season – remember, just seven months ago they lost the National title on a last-second field goal – should have another Championship contender … suspensions pending.

The media grilled Thomas about the incident this week and here’s audio of Thomas getting a little huffy (1:58 mark):

Q: So Cliff wasn’t driving when you left Portland?
THOMAS: Not at all.
Q: Did you have other options for rides home?
THOMAS: Not at all.
Q: Did you lose an option?
THOMAS: Not at all.
Q: Ever been subject to a drug test while you’ve been here?
THOMAS: Not at all.
Q: So you didn’t smoke that night in the car?
THOMAS: Not at all.
[awkward pause from frustrated media]
THOMAS: Thank you.

Between the arrests in 2010 and the incidents of 2011, I’m starting to like these Oregon Ducks.
