'This is the only 'O' that matters': Kayvon Thibodeaux not holding back after Oregon's big win
Kayvon Thibodeaux may not have played for Oregon this week, but he was there.
And he was among the celebrations after the No. 12-ranked Ducks’ upset victory over No. 3 Ohio State Saturday afternoon. He even had an “exclusive postgame interview” with Instagram user @zayontv afterward.
The All-American defensive end didn’t mince words about his thoughts on Ohio State.

Thibodeaux is consistently seen at the top of NFL mock drafts for this year but injured his ankle in Week 1 against Fresno State. He made the trip to Columbus, but was unable to play due to the injury.
His postgame celebration was not the only postgame scene from the Ducks. Someone also left a lone rubber duckie in the middle of The Horseshoe in a quiet – but savage – troll job.
It’s a good thing he did, though, so he could celebrate Oregon’s 35-28 victory with his teammates. We’ll see if he can get back on the field for the Ducks’ Week 3 matchup with Stony Brook on Sept. 18.
Imagine how much different Saturday’s game would have been if he played, though.
