Oregon Athletic Department Confirms Tennessee Game Still On

The Oregon Ducks were apparently getting left with no returning game with the Tennessee Volunteers; head coach Chip Kelly indicated that UT was backing out and moving onto other opponents. Tennessee was like, "Huh? What y'all be talking about here?" and were adamant that no cancellation of the game was forthcoming. Now the Oregon Athletic Department confirms to Rob Moseley of the Eugene Register-Guard that their head coach was mistaken, and this all saga is pretty much concluded.

This has to be mildly embarrassing for Chip Kelly. The Oregon head coach is coming off two straight losses to the best the SEC has to offer, he's had to deal with a growing swirl of offseason controversy, and now he's losing credibility in the media world too! Not the best of days here.

(Oh who are we kidding. Chip Kelly doesn't care one bit about any of this. He was just earning himself master troll status, and he won himself a shiny new club for his efforts. I wonder if he plays World of Warcraft...)

Tennessee Will Play At Oregon In 2013, Says Everyone In Tennessee

Chip Kelly told Rob Moseley of the Eugene Register Guard that the Tennessee Volunteers were backing away from their road date with the Oregon Ducks. Tennessee football is offering a totally different spin on this story, saying they are committed to playing the Ducks in two seasons in Eugene.

Contrary to reports, our head coach and team expect to make the trip to Oregon in '13 unless they cancel.

Someone's not telling the truth here. DRAW THE LINES OF BATTLE.

It's hard to get a read on who's telling the truth. Is Tennessee trying to mitigate the outrage from their fans at losing this game? Or is Chip Kelly pulling Moseley's leg when it comes to Oregon not playing Tennessee? Kelly did say that Oregon is holding an open invite to any big-time team to come play the Ducks in Autzen, and they'll be welcome to return the favor with a road date. So it appears Kelly truly believes there'll be no Vols in his future.

UPDATE: Also, the Oregon Athletic Department believes Kelly could've been mistaken. Well, looks like we're back on! Probably.
