In theory, it's not a surprise that Chip Kelly might want to put a quote from Lane Kiffin inside the Oregon football offices; the Ducks and Trojans would arguably be the two most bitter rivals in the Pac-12 today, and Kiffin has never been one to shy away from giving opponents potential bulletin board material.
But via @FootballScoop, this may not be the quote you were expecting:
If you can't make out the yellow letters, 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."
So out of all the compliments Kelly and his offense have received the past few years, why adorn the wall outside your office with one from your biggest rival? Probably to remind his players that even the Trojans have had to look squarely up at the Ducks in the recent past ... and maybe to remind himself of exactly who handed him the Ducks' most damaging loss last season.
