Maybe it’s something in the water.

At last count, I had 1,221 man crushes across the sports landscape. That number isn’t official and always subject to change (not to mention plenty creepy), but on this afternoon, the date of November 5, 2012, that’s where things stand.
And of every man on the list, one guy who has firmly supplanted himself in the Top 10 (if not Top 1 or 2) is Oregon football coach Chip Kelly...
Erik Spoelstra met with Oregon's football coach Chip Kelly two summers ago and the two discussed a fast paced offense centered around athleticism and speed. Spoelstra called the offense "pace-and-space".
