In coming years, the NCAA may complicate feelings Ducks football fans have for Chip Kelly, who takes his team to a fourth straight BCS game under Kelly. I suspect they'll beat Kansas State in a blowout, and maybe dump Gatorade on Kelly afterward in what feels like his final game (and maybe day) as Oregon's coach. But while we're pinning all that success on Kelly, and lauding him for his victories, let's not forget that he's the guy who warped the NCAA rulebook trying to win a national title. ... [The] sobering reality of big-time college athletics isn't that Kelly is likely to ditch Oregon in the coming days, rather that Kelly is going to walk free, just like Pete Carroll did at USC, while the program is hit with an NCAA-penalty phase hangover he created.
