"Oh, I mean I don't belong in the college game, that's what I meant to say".
Enjoy that, Eagles fans....

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would more obvious.

Love it! Oregon fans are going to hate Chip Kelly. Let the hatred and revisionism begin..."Chip Kelly was a hack." Muhahaha...

The South will NOT rise again!

I wonder if he'll be taking his cute little play-calling posters to Philly?

Took me a second to appreciate its genius, but this, sir, is an excellent post.

He must not want to stick around for the sanctions. Stay classy Kelley.

If I'm Urban Meyer ... I'm on the phone like yesterday with Dontre Wilson.

MattyBeingMatty's picture

I thought I read somewhere that Herman AND Urban were already planning on going to see him this week or the next... But now I'm sure it's a full court press!

So Chip Kelly interviewed for the job. Brian Kelly interviewed for the job. Did Jim Kelly get an interview? Or R. Kelly? Minka Kelly?

R. Kelly really wanted to fly like an eagle, but missed his flight when he became trapped in the closet.

Or perhaps even Kelly Kapowski?

I prefer Kelly Bundy.

She looks awfully familiar to Veronica Corningstone!

Or perhaps WWE's Kelly Kelly?

High fives all around for taking this thread in a completely different direction! Although, I wish someone would've posted some Minka Kelly pictures...she's easy on the eyes.


Unky Buck's picture

Hell, for my sake, oh Minka Kelly...

Ummm....She wins

The way this came to be has to be irritating for Oregon fans. Kelly looks to be headed to the NFL, then decides against it, claiming a desire to remain with the ducks. I imagine this excited the fan base, but he runs off a few days later. What?

Already have seen this bouncing around Facebook.  My wife was asking me about it a little bit ago...

I have a feeling a lot of people out there will believe you, Ramzy. I don't, of course.

So with that, who is the favorite to take over Oregon? Chad Morris perhaps? Then we can not only get Wilson, but Watson too.

The rumor last year when Kelly flirted with taking the Tampa Bay job was that they would promote their OC to HC. I wonder if that's still the plan?

OldColumbusTown's picture

Rumors were that Kelly wanted guarantees from Oregon that if he were to leave, Helfrich, the current OC, would get the job.  Then he returned, obviously, after accepting Tampa's offer and possibly not hearing what he wanted from the Oregon administration.
I believe he still wants the same, and I thought I'd read from several stories that it was basically a foregone conclusion that Helfrich would get the job should Kelly leave this time around.

why does mort's smile look so forced in that twitter background?

I have to say to everyone on this site: way to step up your snarky GIF game lately. Every day the commentariat is really stepping up their game. Bunch of keepers in this thread.

On the MSU 247 thread about the Drake Harris offer an Oregon fan absolutely laid into Urban Meyer talking about how much of a scumbag he was...  Would absolutely LOVE to see his face today now that Chip Kelly has left after saying he was staying!


Wait til they find out Kelly was complicit in their recruiting violations. Wait til the sanctions and scholarship restrictions come down. Wait till all their talent leaves. They're really gonna love him then.

THIS JUST IN: Chip Kelly officially changes the game to Duck, Buc, Duck, Eagle.

He's at least learned the 5 rules of dodgeball and is now applying them to football...

Brett Favre anyone?

Why is no one on Espin talking about the looming NCAA rulings while talking about why he is leaving?


tennbuckeye19's picture

Must be because they hate Ohio State.

Unky Buck's picture

Ha...that was funnier than you probably think.

Anyone remember when I predicted this in the Chip Kelly thread a couple weeks ago?

Nope, but I do remember when I did a month ago ;)

Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!

Does this confirm that the NCAA is about to nuke Oregon?
