Harrington is really looking forward to the Oregon-Stanford matchup. “It’s a complete contrast of styles,” Harrington said.
Harrington also weighed in on the Kansas State-Baylor game. He said Baylor has a chance because the Bears have proven they can move the ball in the air. But Harrington said Baylor has to prove it can make some stops on defense.
Harrington broke down the USC-UCLA matchup as well. Harrington said that USC always has more talent than their opponents. But he said this UCLA team is a lot tougher than people think.
Harrington weighed in on his former team, Oregon. He thinks that Chip Kelly’s success will make NFL teams want him more.
“Chip is a different guy,” Harrington said. “His philosophies are different. They buck the norm. It’s all about numbers and mathematics. There’s a method to his madness. … His style of coaching is going to take the right place.”
Harrington talked about promotion and the Heisman. They had a huge promotional billboard in New York and Harrington said that’s why he made it to New York as a finalist. He said he helped kill the East Coast bias.
