Chip Kelly left the Oregon Ducks football program following back-to-back BCS bowl game victories, and under a black cloud of potential NCAA sanctions.
The newly-minted Philadelphia coach’s NFL career hasn’t gotten off to what we’d consider a flying start, either. Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper has created massive locker room division after screaming the n-word at a Kenny Chesney concert.
Kelly’s tough situation got one of his former Ducks players, Nick Cody, reminiscing. Where else do 20-something year olds up to no good go to reminisce these days?
Twitter, of course.

Cody is talking about the Ducks’ 2009 game against Boise State, when running back LaGarrette Blount punched a Broncos player.
Obviously, Blount, who is trying to rebuild his career with the New England Patriots, was not amused.
@justfollow61 Are you serious?? Don’t tweet me with that bullcrap you dumb ass!
— LeGarrette Blount (@L_Blount27) August 1, 2013
Here’s the funny thing: Blount may not just be “Twitter-shouting” (you’re welcome for that new phrase, by the way) a random insult at his former teammate.
The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Cody had started the entire 2012 season at right tackle, but was forced to sit out the Ducks’ Fiesta Bowl win over Kansas State.
Why, you ask? Because Cody failed to meet the minimum NCAA academic requirements necessary to participate in the post season, according to Kelly himself.
We’re not going to call Cody a “dumb ass” like Blount did, but perhaps the offensive linemen should have thought this one through before casting the first stone.
