Thursday afternoon notes — Kelly says Thomas to start, and more

If there was a question about Oregon’s quarterback situation, there isn’t any longer as Ducks coach Chip Kelly said today that Darron Thomas will be the starter, with the intent that he would be the only one who will play against UW Saturday.

Kelly said that during an interview with Dave “Softy” Mahler on KJR-AM, which you can listen to here. He also said that cornerback Cliff Harris remains suspended and won’t play against UW.

You can read more about what happened at Oregon’s practice today in reports from The Oregonian and the Eugene Register-Guard (the Ducks work out in the morning). In both stories, Kelly refutes the idea that the Ducks don’t have any respect for UW, as Chris Polk said in an ESPN.com story published today (though I think a full reading of the context of Polk’s quote is that it’s as much that UW hasn’t done much lately to earn Oregon’s respect as anything else, and there’s not much to argue there).

IN OTHER NEWS. …

Bud Withers ponders what might have happened had Kenny Wheaton not made that interception in 1994.

— Softy also had Nick Holt on today (he really should have just had Holt and Kelly on at the same time and let them go at it). You can listen to that here. No real personnel revelations but some additional insight into thoughts on Oregon’s offense.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller has a video preview of the UW-Oregon game.

— Miller also breaks down some of ESPN’s latest draft projections, including Todd McShay’s listing of Alameda Ta’amu as No. 17 overall.

— Miller also had an entertaining chat today and breaks the news that he’ll be attending the UW-Oregon game this week — so one last chance to get one of those Husky hot dogs on the way out the door.

— Interesting stuff here from the Tucson Citizen breaking down Robert Golden’s rather astounding 91-yard interception return against UW last week.

All for now.
