    I'm not sure what that means. But if yorue asking me if i'm worried about the long term prospects for the Ducks? Not in the slightest.

    And i was wrong about those 2 recruits. Theyre twins. 1 of them is saying they're going to look at other schools. The other is saying they're still solid to Oregon. We'll see.

  • Good luck to him at the next level.I would have liked to see him take the Carolina job and give his offense to Cam Newton.

  • Annnnnnd, first twitter report hit that the reason Kelly reconsidered is due to, wait for it, wait for it, bowl bans and scholarship reductions.

    Dont be good one the West Coast, it pisses the NCAA off! It's okay for Auburn to straight hand CASH to kids, because, well, that's the SEC.

    Reminds me of the classic Inside the NBA Moment a few years ago;

    "Remember what I offered you to go to Auburn, Dirk?" - Charles Barkley
    "Yes, $1M dollars" - Dirk
    "That's would be cheating Charles" - Ernie Johnson
    "It's the SEC...so the NCAA says its okay" - Charles Barkley

    I'm not denying that Oregon faces sanctions. I know they'll get something (although i'd be surprised if its a bowl ban, i expect a loss of some scholarships, but we'll see).

    Of course there's going to be speculation about why he left but that viewpoint doesnt make any sense unless some huge news came out in the last week and a half, which hasnt happened. Its not like the investigation is some big secret that just started, its been going on for 2 and a half years. So if that was Chips reason for leaving he would have just left a couple weeks ago when the possibility first came up. I think the more likely reason is this:

    There will also be an interesting debate about if Kelly was given enough personnel power. Freeman reports Kelly got a "large amount of personnel say."

    Source says Chip Kelly is indeed head coach of the Eagles. ESPN was first to report this. I'm told Kelly got large amount of personnel say.

    This makes sense: the best tactic that you can ever have in a negotiation is to walk away from talks. Kelly did just that, "returning" to Oregon and spurning the NFL and, apparently, convincing the Eagles to give him the personnel control that he wanted.

    Well then what do you think changed between two weeks ago and now regarding any sanctions? The earliest any new info will come out is this spring when they go to their NCAA "trial". Right now its just a holding period as far as that is all concerned.

    I'm actually happy about it. Number 1 recruiting problem the Ducks have is that "the Duck system doesnt prepare players for hte NFL". Can't say that anymore.

  • Might as well get the rumor mill started.

    Kelly is going to trade for Jonathon Stewart, Dennis Dixon, Ed Dickson, and he's going to send an inquiry to Carroll about Unger. He'll then draft Dion Jordan and Carson York.

    Who else did I miss?

  • A lot of speculation in the Portland radio media that his offense will look a lot more like the Patriots than like the Ducks. (For those that dont know Bellicek and Chip are buddies who have spent time at each other's practices).

    Also, its being reported that his likely defensive coordinator will be the d. coordinator from the university of Georgia and that they'll be switching Philly to a 3-4.

  • He's a moron.
    I was onsite this morning at the Casanova Center before the news was released.
    He left alot of people high and dry.
    Phil Knight and all of the University of Oregon would have given him anything.
    Good riddance.

    Who is "they"? Softy? I know the local media hates him, because he didnt give them access. National media some love him, some hate him. His players love him as much as i've ever seen any players from any sport love their coach (based on tweets and interviews i've seen today and over hte last few years).

    I also know he's really respected and has lots of buddies in coaching. I know he and Sark are good buddies. Urban Meyer spends time at Duck practices with him. Bellicek as i mentioned.

  • Trenchbroom wrote:Interesting. The way Bradley interviews (good enough to steal the DC job from Dan Quinn who we had already hired to do the job, then good enough to have Pete keep him even though he purged most of the other coaches) I figured he'd easily find a HC job. But the Chargers picked someone else, and now the Eagles have as well.

    Bradley did say in an interview that he loves it here and that his family has "flourished" in Seattle. That might play a factor.


    I know this is off topic, but I wanted to point out that both those teams went with coaches who have offensive backgrounds. It may have nothing to do with how Bradley interviews, but how he answered who he wanted as offensive coordinator and his offensive philosophy.
