This Thursday the #3 Oregon Ducks will be traveling to Palo Alto to face the #5 Stanford Cardinal. There will be a lot of teams around the country with their eyes on this one since it will have huge BCS title implications. Last year the Ducks were cruising towards the title game before they went down at home 17-14 to Stanford.
De’Anthony Thomas was asked about the Stanford defense today, and if it could hold Oregon’s offense to only 14 points again. He didn’t exactly think they could do it again: “I don’t think so. I feel like this team, we should at least put up 40.” Here’s the video:
For a guy working his way back into the flow of things after injury, DAT sure does have a lot of confidence. I’d rather him be cocky than timid but he might want to make sure Mark Helfrich has him in the gameplan this week before he says the team will drop 40. It will be a tough task to put up a 40 burger on David Shaw’s defense.
We will see if Stanford takes this one personally.
