The two-time Pac-10 coach of the year leads the Ducks against the Auburn Tigers in the BCS national title game on Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz.
Dan Patrick: What happened to New Year's Day bowl games? We have to wait until Jan. 10 for the title game.
Chip Kelly: I didn't even know some of the other games are spread out during the week. I just saw an advertisement for the Orange Bowl on Jan. 4. I'm a traditionalist. I would like them all to be played on the 1st.
DP: Would you rather play Auburn right away or have time to figure out what you're going up against?
CK: As long as each team has the same amount of time, there's no built-in excuse either way.
DP: How do you simulate Cam Newton?
CK: We tried to get Shaquille O'Neal, but we found out that was an NCAA violation.
DP: Who have you faced that's similar to Newton?
