Hey, your son did have some other options...

It was homesickness more than anything else.  Apparently(according to UCLA media) the only reason he chose Michigan in the first place was that he was such a USC fanboy that he couldn't bring himself to pick UCLA and he really wanted to play tight end and USC only wanted him for defense.  He'll do fine at UCLA(once he gets back from his 3 game suspension), but I'm not interested in anyone getting shamed for saying it maybe wasn't the best decision he could have made.

I wish people would stop thinking that every dispute MUST be addressed publicly. I know the guy is frustrated for his son, and maybe justifiably, but how about a call or email? Maybe wait more than 3 games, for that matter?

Michael Robinson later responded to another tweet, writing that Kelly's success at Oregon "was simply a fluke

 

WTF? Kelly was the OC for a couple years, before succeeding Belotti; Chip got the job b/c his offenses lit up the Pac-10 (now Pac-12). And that success continued for a few more years, before he went to the NFL.

I don't like Chip Kelly, overall, but the guy had a long record of success at Oregon. It wasn't a fluke.
