We've all heard of bulletin board material; an opposing player or coach says something about the competition that is used as a motivational tool for an upcoming game.
Well, Chip Kelly has put an interesting spin on the type of opposing quotes he posts in the Oregon football offices. According to @FootballScoop, Kelly took a 2010 quote from USC coach Lane Kiffin and made a sign for all to see. However, it's not the type of quote you might have expected from one of the Ducks' rivals.
The sign reads: "'It's a great offense, and as I said leading up to the game, maybe one of the best to ever play college football.' -- Lane Kiffin, USC head coach."
Yeah, it's a compliment. A really nice compliment. A compliment that should make Oregon feel proud of what it has accomplished offensively during Kelly's tenure.
Or maybe it's on the wall because the Trojans defeated Oregon 38-35 and cost the Ducks a shot at the national championship.
This isn't the only sign in the Oregon athletic department that mentions another Pac-12 team. There are also signs that stress, "No food, no drinks, no beavers."
