Breaking College Football news…

In a turn of events, Chip Kelly is leaving Oregon to become the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.  He had reportedly decided to stay at Oregon a little over a week ago and was negotiating a nice upgrade on his deal.  Then today comes the announcement that at age 49, he will indeed leave the college ranks to try his hand at coaching in the NFL.  His up tempo offense has been hugely successful at Oregon.  Many NFL teams already implement aspects of it in their offensive scheming.  Hate to see him leave the “quack attack” but wish him success.

In other west coast college football news, reportedly a scuffle broke out in the USC locker room after their loss to GT in the Sun Bowl (way to go Jackets!).  Some freshmen players made comments about the lack of senior leadership on the team after the embarrassing loss.  Some ten to fifteen players were involved.  Lane Kiffin does not quite have the same “cache” at USC as Pete Carroll does he?  Bit of loss of control of the players going on out there?
