Instead of breaking down the game with ATQ, I decided to go straight to the source and interview Oregon head coach Chip Kelly. The results of the conversation are after the break.
BTD: First of all, congratulations on your 11-0 season. It must be a great feeling to know that you are only one win away from facing Auburn in the National Championship.
CK: Oregon State is our National Championship, that's all we are focused on right now.
BTD: Sure coach. What do you think about the Cam Newton situation?
CK: Who's Cam Newton?
BTD: What do you think about California faking injuries to slow your Offense down?
CK: The refs told me that didn't happen, so it must not have occured.
BTD: But Jeff Tedford reprimanded Cal's Defensive Coordinator for telling his player to take a dive.
CK: That's news to me. I'm just focusing on Oregon State.
BTD: Let's talk about real injuries. How's Jackson Rice doing, and don't you dare say he's Day to Day.
CK: He's Day to Day.
BTD: Could you please give me a real answer?
BTD: Didn't think so. Who is your favorite sideline reporter, Jenn Brown or Erin Andrews?
CK: Brown, by far
BTD: Alright, let's get to the game. Who is going to be the X-Factor for the Oregon Ducks?
CK: I can't tell you that. Why do you think I close practices?
BTD: Coach, there's no point in having this discussion if you aren't going to give me any straight answers. Can you please tell me what the keys to the game will be.
CK: We have to Win The Day. By the way, nice boots.
BTD: That's a little inappropriate, but thank you. So, how will you win the day?
CK: By playing well.
BTD: Do you deal in hypotheticals?
BTD: Thanks Coach
