UCLA’s Newfound Cash Comes With a Steep Price

Darren Perkins Editorials

One of Oregon’s favorite ex-coaches is now on the move to the B1G Conference as the skies in Los Angeles will soon be turning green with all the cash that will now be falling upon Westwood. But, rest assured that money will not be the only thing falling, as Bruin football will now be falling to the bottom of the conference standings.

A mediocre and underachieving team in the Pac-12, the Bruins are at the risk of becoming cellar-dwellers in their new conference, where along with flight miles they will be racking up some serious “Ls” that will make all those cross-country flights even longer. I pulled Mr. FishDuck away from the NFL lines for a moment, and he had quite the special interest in this topic.

Chip Kelly will not last. In fact, I would say that he might never get the opportunity to get destroyed in the B1G because with UCLA’s influx of money, they might just make a fresh start and throw the dollars at a new coach. A new coach who, unlike Chip, will take advantage of LA’s fertile recruiting ground and put them in a better position to compete.

Look for the Bruins to become the Kansas Jayhawks of the B1G. All hoops, no gridiron. The big question for Oregon fans in the OBD forum is: What will Chip do after his time at UCLA is over?

New 2024 FishDuck Publishing Schedule….

During the off-season the FishDuck.com publishing schedule will consist of articles on Mondays and Tuesdays. Do keep checking as new articles could be published during the week when a writer has something to say.

In mid-August of 2024, we will go back to the seven-days-a-week of articles during the football season as we did in the football season of 2023.

The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there.  At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.

Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!

OBD Forum members….we got your back.  No Trolls Allowed!
