We will always have the Rose Bowl 2012

This afternoon during the NFC Championship game, Oregon Duck fans learned via Twitter that Head Oregon Coach Chip Kelly is leaving for the NFL and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Florida. All across the Internet vie twitter, email, blog post and sports stories the news was spread much like the drums of old. The reactions of Duck fans was various from a sense of betrayal, sadness and resignation. At the least, it was a bad time being less then two weeks before "letter of intent day" for the new football recruits.How many will we lose? There was also wild speculation on who the Ducks will hire as our new coach. It seems the football season never ends.

However, inspite of it all, we will always remember what it was like to go to the Rose Bowl....... and WIN! Thanks for the memories Coach Kelly and best of luck at Tampa Bay. You will always be the coach who led us to that win in the Rose Bowl and you will always be a DUCK ! I will always remember you jumping in air when Oregon recovered a Wisconsin fumble near the Oregon sidelines.

Let's Go Ducks !

Middle of the night update:

Hey Chip, Was that a bad dream or what ! Or was it ?

Latest news is Chip changed his mind and is staying...... I don't know about you but I had a real night of resless dreams.
