thrown for a loss

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Some teams lose key play­ers to the NFL. Or to in­juries. Then, there’s Ore­gon. Prob­a­bly no team in col­lege foot­ball has had more high­pro­file scrapes with author­ity than the Ducks. Af­ter last sea­son, quar­ter­back Jeremiah Ma­soli looked like a top Heis­man Tro­phy can­di­date for 2010. Then came the off­sea­son.

First, Ma­soli was sus­pended for the sea­son af­ter plead­ing guilty to bur­glar­iz­ing a fra­ter­nity house. Then, a month ago, he was kicked off the team af­ter he was cited for driv­ing with a sus­pended li­cense and pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana. Not sur­pris­ingly, quar­ter­back is the biggest ques­tion mark for the Ducks en­ter­ing this sea­son. Kelly ap­par­ently will wait al­most un­til the opener to de­cide be­tween fifth-year se­nior Nate Costa and sopho­more Dar­ron Thomas.
