Oregon’s Arsalan Kazemi Reportedly Transferred From Rice Because His Athletic Director Was Reportedly A Pathetic Racist
Sports Illustrated has obtained a report that details the pathetically racist actions of Rice Athletic Director Rick Greenspan. They’re absolutely awful.
As you know, yesterday Chip Kelly stunned pretty much everyone by leaving Oregon to become the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, just over a week after it looked like he’d remain with the Ducks. Today, the Eagles officially introduce Kelly at 1:30 p.m… and if you’re an Eagles fan who wants to see your new coach but are stuck at your desk, we’ve got you covered.
As we discussed earlier today, Chip Kelly is staying at Oregon, where he’ll continue to pile up points and wins, rather than chase the challenge (and money) of the NFL. But why did he really decide to stay put? After the jump, we look into it.
As we mentioned in the nightly action roundup post, Oregon beat Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl last night, 35-17. You see a score like that, you think, “Ah, five touchdowns. Not Oregon’s most explosive night, but a fine performance all the same.” But that would be conventional, and this is Oregon. Oregon does nothing conventionally. Oregon gets one-point safeties. One-point safeties? Oh, they exist. Feast your eyes.
What Happened Last Night: Oregon Won Chip Kelly’s (Possible) Finale, And The Knicks Got Back On Track
We may have been witnesses to the end of a brief, but glorious, era in college football last night. Also some basketball happened too. After the jump, what you missed…
Thanks to upset losses to Kansas State and Oregon, Alabama’s national title hopes — feared dead after an upset loss of their own to Texas A&M — have been brought back to life. In the waning moment’s of Stanford’s overtime win in Eugene, a den full of Alabama fans nervously waited as Jordan Williamson lined up for a 37-yard field goal. The kick was good, and a good ol’ fashioned SEC freakout (which comes at the 1:16 mark) was in order. [Friends of the Program via Kegs N' Eggs]
It might be the weirdest story of the college football season: USC fired a student manager and was fined by the Pac-12 after it turned out said manager was deflating footballs during the Trojans’ 62-51 loss to Oregon last weekend. The strategy, especially considering USC lost, was doomed from the start, so we decided to help USC with a few more potentially-successful ways to bend the rules next time.
Oregon’s wearing a weird uniform. “Well,” one might think, “what else is new?” A fair thing to wonder. Oregon always wears weird uniforms. These, though, were apparently enough for Nike to give their own self-promoting video. See what all the (self-)hype is about after the jump.
