Evil Bill O'Brien @evilbillobrien
I would like to congratulate the Philadelphia Eagles on landing their 2nd choice for head coach. Way to rebound after me.
“Never trust a government that doesn't trust its own citizens with guns.”
I'm sure he got his but big issue was Howie Roseman got off his Jerry Jones spiel and gave Chip more personnel and player pull.
Meyer4Prez "This is wut happens when ur team site analyst are huge homers glad Bill K+Alex G keep it real instead of getting our hopes up."
The only thing I know for sure about this whole thing is that I will not listen to one made up story from the media as to why this played out the way it did.
I'm fine with the hire.
I think they go back to what they were under Bellotti. It is going to be hard to maintain the success level Kelly sustained. He went to four BCS bowls in four years as HC.
With UCLA, Washington, Stanford, Oregon State and Arizona all good or improving, I expect Oregon to take a step back.
I thought I heard the NCAA is either investigating or considering investigating them. When I heard that I figured Kelly would be gone. Am I correct about this?
For about a quarter and a half until he gets hurt again. Sliding feet first is unbelievably difficult when you're a fantastic athlete.
Yes, yes you are.
I hope Phil Knight and the Oregon Admin tell Emmert and the NCAA to go Eff themselves and continue their success.
I'd love to see the NCAA sued into oblivion and Emmert exposed for the money grubbing fraud that he is.
I think so. I'm a bit tongue in cheek. But, cynically, there is a big difference between investigating and serious sanctions. I have no doubt the NCAA will do the former, I have severe doubts on the latter.
p.s.... Which happens to be the exact opposite of us.

Excellent hire for the Birds!!!

Oregon AD Rob Mullens, earlier this month: "Obviously, we're ecstatic that Coach Kelly decided to remain at the University of Oregon."
For those of you who have doubts about Kelly in the NFL, just look at the offense he ran at NH... nothing like Oregon.
BOB has said that Chip is the smartest offensive mind he has ever been around. That says a lot, IMO.
It was reported on the NFL Network that Florida's DC may be under consideration to move to the Eagles.
I definitely think people give Chip Kelly far too little credit.
Of all the guys out there, Chip Kelly was the only one who I had any interest in coaching the Birds. He's smart enough to be able to tailor his offense to the NFL. Will be interesting to watch.
For those talking about Carrington, I was wondering what happened to that cat. Worth a call for sure - but man I do love some of the WR options were talking with next year.
I was warming on Bradley, but Chip was always my #1. Now we just need to pair him with a competent DC.
I've got a feeling that we never offered because of a lack of interest on Carrington's part. JMO. He'll have plenty of suitors.
Ted Roof Eagle's new DC. He coudn't pass up the allure of the NFL.
Just as a note to those who are concerned about PSU's class rank in 2013 (I know some had a sig bet about it), it looks like Oregon is losing three of its top recruits (Robinson twins, Dontre Wilson, possibly even others). I had thought previously they'd be passing PSU in the team rankings, but we'll have to see now.
Holy cow....that is a big shocker.....!
sanctions have to be hitting Oregon hard, but as an eagles fan im interested in seeing, vick desean mccoy and brown all in these funny option plays, and with peters returning healthy, should be interesting on the offensive end
You aren't going to see that.
Withholding comment until phila and shav chime in.
