Chip Kelly to stay at Oregon
Good call on his part, he'd have been a disaster in the NFL.
His annoying personality and obsession with being fast is best to stay at oregon.
He is the most "oregon" coach of any coach.
I'm not so sure about his personality, but this is actually really well said. Kelly double-downing on Oregon is amazing for that program, and for college football. It's great to have innovative minds like his remain in the college ranks.
...To challenge SC. I think RR had a lot to gain with chip leaving too.
With the personality, it's more of the everything has to be fast factor.
You run to the line of scrimmage, it's gotta be fast.
You get onto the practice field, it's gotta be fast.
You gotta take a shit? It better be fast.
I don't think I've heard an interview with him and he's doesn't mention fast. Which I guess is just the oregon way.
With the NCAA bearing in on Oregon, this is a bit of a surprise...but at least a coach will have to live with the sanctions under his own watch.
Come on, Wilma Edwards. If you're doing a shtick, maybe you should reevaluate. If not, spend a little time looking around the site and see what kind of comments people usually make on threads before jumping back in.
before the mods give you a one-way ticket to Bolivia...
You don't really think that the NCAA is going to do anything serious to Oregon, do you? I think Kelly turned down the job precisely because he knows nothing is going to happen. Phil Knight has way too much money and influence.
Not sure if it's going to be a loss of scholie's or bowl games, but something is brewing in Eugene. Way to much smoke for there not to be a fire. I think the big thing is waiting to see how soon they'll be punished. With the NCAA creating a farcical "tiered punishment system," it will be interesting to see if they get hit before or after the new system is put in place.
An Oregon super-booster was able to keep him there. Seems like he was just using NFL teams again to get another big raise. There better not be an NFL team dumb enough to come knocking next year.
You find Cleveland funny? You look funny..
I was awfully curious to see how that offense would have worked in the NFL.
Especially now since he was considering the Eagles. We possibly could have seen Kelly's offense + Michael Vick = pointz, assuming it worked out
As has been discussed in other threads, Kelly's offense is a pass-based spread. The Qb running is not the focus of the offense. That makes me think that it may translate to the NFL.
Vick however has never been a good passer, by his own admission cannot read defenses very well, and has been a turnover machine in Philly. He's also getting old by nfl standards.
Jim Mora Sr said Vick was a coach killer after his kid got canned from the falcons. Time has proved him correct with all of his coaches getting canned wityh the exception of Petrino who left before he go whacked.
I don't watch pro ball, but am forced because of geography to listen/watch the Eagles and Steelers. Kelly coming to Philly had me mildly interested. But Vick is nothing more than fool's gold.
What happened with Cleveland? Money? It seemed like a perfect fit. Also, aren't their sanctions coming?
I would say because it's not a perfect fit.
Cleveland management is incompetent and cowardly.
I really wanted somebody to attempt the spread 'n shred in the NFL, just to see if it could work.
A "report" button to flag admins. This we need.
as long as it's used responsibly (not implying you wouldn't), you can post concerns on the Moderator Acton Sticky.
Looks like Phil Knight backed up the brink trucks.
I wonder if the NFL will come calling again next year. Teams are going to get annoyed with him before too long.
They'll still probably lose half of their cheerleaders to the NFL.
Good news for college football.
Better news for fake scouting agencies.
The man is a king at Oregon, smart move on his part again to parlay his NFL offers into a salary bump
I'm definitely surprised by this. I thought Cleveland was a perfect fit for Kelly with Richardson, big recevers in Gordon and Little, and McCoy actually being a good fit for his offense. I wonder if Kelly just wants to hold off till winning a MNC. He's still got time to make the jump to the NFL, but he should make it sooner rather than later.
The roster has a lot of talent for a coach like Kelly to work with. He may have backed out and wanted to stay in Eugene; I don't blame him. I also question the Browns front office; they may have showed their cold feet and not trusted his system in the NFL. I was really intrigued by this move by the Browns but I think both will probably be better off without each other.
He would need the perfect situation - a proven NFL option QB (Seattle, SF (?), Washington - without the blown knee). Anything else would be watching a 3 year experiment praying for a draft miracle. Philly and Vick wouldn't work -too old.
1. I think he's gonna get blasted tomorrow night
2. Domers will now really feel entitled to a NCS appearance on a regular basis.
3. Which will never happen. This was a miracle season about four different ways.
4. He's been rumored to have NFL aspirations.
Short answer no
Your argument is not sound
I thought he would leave town to avoid sanctions just like Pete Carroll did.
Then he interviewed at Cleveland and decided maybe sanctions weren't so bad after all.
MGrowOld, I am sorry.
Coming from you that means a lot. Thank you.
Sorry - the post I was responding to fit caved.
It is quite a tribute to inspire a follower like that. That must be who negged you for no apparent reason when you were posting from the Outback Bowl.
I live in Oregon, and you would think the Duck fans just won the national title with him staying.
They might, next year.
I was looking forward to seeing all those weird signs he makes for play calls in the NFL...then again he could just use the NFL QB communication system but that would not be any fun
Trolling standards sure are slipping these days. Don't they teach anything in the schools any more?
I bet she has a brother named Herm.
Ducks have to be a big favorite next year with Mariotta and Black Mamba returning.
Still can't believe that guy came out of nowhere (NHU).
Saban! Saban! Saban! Everybody with me!
