Confirmed: Oregon Intends to Hire Chip Kelly

Recommended Posts

If true, this is really disappointing and a down grade for sure.

 

This is why I was telling all the MC haters “be careful what you wish for” a month or so ago.

 

We are losing blue chip recruits left and right. Chip has done next to nothing at UCLA.

 

Had MC stayed I firmly believe we would have been in the playoff in the 2023 season.

 

Now we will be 8-4. 😞

This is the same click bait article as above. Could be true but will wait and see.

Like I said before. Where there is smoke, there is fire. The Cristobal news started out the same way. Welcome back, Chip…..I guess.

We’ll need players to be 8-4. The mass exodus has yet to begin. Good thing for the portal.

All I know is the NCAAF becoming farmersonly.com due to all the coach swapping is getting old, fast.

Interesting the "news" has been up and public for an hour and a half yet none of the Oregon insiders are confirming.  I hold out hope it isn't true.

Mobilize guys. Email the athletic department and send tweets protesting this. Call in the morning. I just fired off an email. We need to stop the rehiring of Chip Kelly now to save the football program. We'll look just like UCLA over the 5 years if Chip has his way. We'll be another easy game for USC and Utah if Chip comes back like UCLA.

That would be a high buyout but does it go down after Jan 15? Chip was on the hot seat, maybe UCLA is willing to let him walk and bring on Aranda. 

In January it's down to 0... But we can't wait till then. There won't be a recruiting class or much if a team left.

Maybe just maybe this is isn't for the HC job? Chip comes in as the OC and a HC is announced soon after? One can dream. 

Yeah right. And Ryan Day will leave Ohio State to be the HC.

Uncle Phil must have had it with MCs physicality stuff.

I need to rewatch those Oregon games against Utah and admire all that MC physicality.

I say we get behind anything which is done. If a top DC isn't in the cards with this scenario I would be extremely surprised. I think we have to wait for the complete story to unfold.

Everyone freaking out, just think how the Miami guys are going to feel when the Chip led Ducks put up 78 points on Oklahoma in the Alamo Bowl

If history is any kind of indicator, some poor UGA trash talker is going to get his jaw broke directly after the opening game is over.

If Chip comes back, I would think his recruiting effectiveness would be multiplied by the fact he is now a two-time former NFL head coach. THAT says something to the 4- and 5-star recruits to which he would be talking, and is a GIANT advantage over nearly every other college coach in America. Think it through, people. The man now oozes experience and wisdom.

It did nothing for UCLA. A school that Jim Mora consistently recruited top 15 teams to.

I keep seeing Trailers of Slick Willie 2 Curse of FSU.  Getting all my VooDoo stuff out of the closet, right now.

Since CK was only Oregon's HC for one Utah game, his history is limited... But the Ducks won, 31-24, with Jeremiah Masoli at the helm.

Say what you will, but his worst season, in 2009, was a 10-3 (Sound familiar) stinker including the Rose Bowl loss to tOSU.  The Ducks finished ranked #16.

Two out of three of his ensuing seasons ended with one loss, including the much debated Dyer was down debacle.

 

It's not what I'm hoping for, but if CK is the choice, I'll put on my big boy pants, and cheer on OBD... 'Cause that's what DUCK fans do!

Interesting tweet from John Canzano

 

It’s a process… I’m told the next 24-72 hours of this Ducks search could bring a twist. Important to remember we’re viewing hiring process through a keyhole. My read: Door One NFL candidate Mystery college candidate Door Two Justin Wilcox Chip Kelly Kalani Sitake

That was then. And Mora went 17-19 in his last THREE seasons. Today LA is a massive cesspool for the homeless, and its glitter is now buried under the mud of poverty. Try recruiting into that mess. Today's recruits are not dummies.

3. Jordan Bell can’t block out on free throws.

If chip is head coach and we keep losing players, get ready for a half empty, boring Autzen Stadium.

 

At least the beer 🍻 line will be shorter.

There are plenty of rough areas in Southern Cal for sure but UCLA is in West Los Angeles which is better neighborhood. Also, UCLA is one of the highest ranked Universities in the country. Oregon gets roughly 30,000 applicants each year while UCLA gets well over 100,000. Lots of people want to go there. Plus, average temp in the 70's is a good pull and the campus is nice. Look at Bruin basketball. They have plenty of top notch talent and recruiting at high levels. Oregon does have superior facilities to offer and for many the pull of a true college town is attractive.
