ESPN: Oregon's Thomas is better than you think
Quick: Name the second-rated passer in the Pac-12 behind Stanford's Andrew Luck.
It's not USC's Matt Barkley. It's not Washington's Keith Price or Arizona's Nick Foles.
It's Oregon's Darron Thomas, the guy that some -- let's call it a vocal minority -- speculated just a few weeks ago should be benched in favor of backup Bryan Bennett.
Yes, Thomas. Second-team All-Pac-10 last year. Led his team to the national title game. He's presently the nation's 10th-rated passer with 22 touchdowns and just five interceptions.
