Oregon fired its head coach yesterday. Given that Mark Helfrich was just two years removed from coaching in a national championship game, the move had a real SEC flavor to it.

If there were any justice, that would chill the bidding for Helfrich’s replacement, but let’s face it — the Ducks can throw enough money around to make anybody swallow their qualms about that.
