Kelly: Going, going ... or not?

In your mind's eye, you could see Oregon coach Chip Kelly leaning back, eyes closed, his iPod on repeat:
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
And if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know.

This indecision killing you?

Sunday evening, news broke that Oregon coach Chip Kelly was in earnest discussions with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Then he was gone -- poof! -- off to the NFL.

Then, as if Lee Corso appeared ... not so fast my friend.

From George Schroeder of the Eugene Register-Guard:
A highly placed Oregon source had told me Sunday night: “It’s done.” Other news outlets had similar reports. The Bucs thought it was done. The Ducks thought it was done.

And then it apparently wasn’t. This thing might be fluid. Maybe Kelly’s mind will change several more times. But as of late Sunday night, the coach was informing people he’s staying.

It might be worthwhile to lean on Schroeder's "this thing might be fluid," though he's not the only one reporting that Kelly has reversed course away from Tampa.

Obviously, we'll continue to follow the story.
