It’s official. Chip Kelly says the Ducks have broken a new University of Oregon record.
Following Monday’s practice, Kelly told a reporter, “I know Saturday’s practice was the most reps we’ve ever had in the history of the University of Oregon, despite you said we were going slow. We were pretty close (again) today.”
So coach, are you adding anything new? This is an experimental time, isn’t it?
Kelly responded bluntly, “No. We don’t have an experimental time. We practice. We are running our offense. We decide what we’re running and we run it. We put it in during the first five days and by then we’ll start refining it.”
College football is back. It’s only the second week of spring practice in Eugene and Chip Kelly is in mid-season form. Beautiful.
Oregon vs. LSU is only 152 days away.
In other pace related news, Kevin Sumlin says Houston scrimmaged 100 plays in under an hour on Saturday. Think about that. Meanwhile, Rick Stockstill says MTSU got in 154 plays in just under 2 hours.
Meanwhile, we heard the GA's at one SEC program threw back a case of Bud heavy in just over an hour on Saturday night.
UPDATE: We have received information from a loyal viewer that says Chip Kelly needs to watch the film of the third practice of 1978 spring ball under Rich Brooks. A lot of reps there, we're told. It could be close.
