ESPN NCAA analyst Trevor Matich called in to break down the Chip Kelly hire. Matich says that Kelly's offense will certainly translate to the NFL, although you wont see the 80 yard touchdowns. As far as personnel goes, Matich said that "ideally you'll have offensive skilled players that are quick enough to keep up." The QB is the one who needs to keep everything straight and make the correct read.

Former Oregon coach and AD Mike Bellotti called in to talk to about what kind of a hire this is for the Eagles.
