Okay, so, I hate Chip Kelly. Not because he is still the Oregon coach after reports circulated that he was close to bolting to the Cleveland Browns, but because I believe he went through all of it just to make me look foolish for posting about the NFL reports as if they were basically fact.
Also, it means Oregon will still be very good in 2013, though they probably would have been very good with a new coach as well. I don’t see that program going away anytime soon.
