    Yeti would have to design a special steel-framed 500-qt cooler for Cheeseburger to sit his fat ass on

    They are? Sure they are different, but there are massive similarities in playing the game, not so much in how you obtain talent or need to deal with it.

    I see some successful college coaches go to the NFL and either fail or succeed.

    Well, if he were the guy initially, he could have been signed two weeks ago.

    I also believe he wasnt the primary target at first. Price for Frost was probably too high for a guy with only one season under his belt.

    Every brand that fires its coach and need to hire a new one is a shytstorm.

    The UCF brand is an empty stadium in some little league conference. If he wants too much, I dont blame him. There are six teams at least interested and he is probably rhe primary target of each. One team (aTm) is also a top 10 job. Another is his alma mater. It's a sellers market for him. He will get paid probably whatever number he asks.

    If true? I'm fine with it as long as there is some reassurance that this is not a 2 to 3 Year get me back into the NFL thing for Chip.

    What he had at Oregon was amazing.

    It’s almost like some of you know nothing about the NFL. No team will ever hire Chip Kelly in the NFL again. And he went 10-6 each of his first two years, not exactly terrible.

    I've always kinda thought that Kelly would not happen so I've just dismissed it. If true I would totally be on board with it.

    not to be "Debbie Downer" but did Chip have any real college success without Scott Frost as his O/C? Honest question, not sarcasm. My concern is that we get a guy who was "the face" of the program but not "the brains" of the program. Like when Mullen left and Addazio came in. Urban was still the HC but the program really was hitting on all cylinders like it was with Mullen. More important than the HC is the OC/DC as far as I am concerned. I would prefer Frost over Kelly simply because I have seen him be successful @ both HC/OC and know that he can be both the brains and the face of the program. Again, not poo-pooing a Kelly hire. Just really wonder what we would be getting. Make sense??

    Kelly may be one of those coaches who can get it done in College but struggle (as he did) in the NFL. Not that he was that bad, maybe just not a good fit.

    The weird thing is he actually never had Scott Frost as his OC.

    When Chip Kelly was HC at Oregon Frost was the WR coach, not the OC.

    We will know if this is true early next week. No reason to delay an announcement.
