Philadelphia-Area Restaurant Chain Names Burger After Chip Kelly

And it [UPDATE x 2!] looks OK or not so good, depending on which is which.


Food & Drink
UPDATE 1:56 pm, May 2: Dueling Chips! This appears to be the real deal, as evidenced by actual potato chips and crazy-goopy confit. This one was sent in by Kevin Finn's daughter, who brought a real camera into play. Are we having fun yet? Is this like the Avignon pope? This second burger is the true monster we always believed it might be: insane vicosity and trashy crunch and shameless devotion ...   More

Re: UO Head Coaching Position

John Locanthi is being considered to replace Chip Kelly at UO. We obtained his application.


Ten days after it was announced that Chip Kelly was returning to Oregon, the coach was instead hired away by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles.

How Did Phil Knight Keep Chip Kelly in Oregon?

The head Duck's contract isn't chicken feed.


 After Chip Kelly done run off to the big city for the weekend—and then, very unexpectedly, returned home last night to Phil Knight's farm—speculation has run rampant in the sports biosphere about why the Oregon Ducks coach would spurn the National Football League's glamour and cash. We're as puzzled as anybody. But it's worth remembering that Kelly is hardly coming back to a cardboard box ...   More

Here are four insta-takeaways after watching Oregon football coach Chip Kelly's news conference this morning to announce the prospect that senior running back LeGarrette Blount may play this season after all. 1) Kelly never said his initial decision the day after the Boise State game was wrong.

By all accounts, Oregon football coach Chip Kelly will announce this morning some sort of plan that creates enough wiggle room for him to back off his once set-in-stone decision to not let senior running back LeGarrette Blount play this season after Blount lost his mind for a few minutes on national TV following the Ducks' opening-game loss to Boise State.

Bye Bye Bellotti

I had my ups and downs with Mike Bellotti when he coached Oregon football. I'm never going to hate completely on a guy who elevated the football program when he took over in 1995. But Bellotti's announcement today that he's leaving the athletic director's post less than a year into it for an ESPN analyst's job definitely smacks of "when the going got tough, Bellotti got going to a much easier job." I'm ...   More
