Oregon staying mum on Woodward’s comments

Those wondering what the reaction is from officials at Oregon about the comments over the weekend from Washington athletic director Scott Woodward will likely be left to wonder.
As detailed today by Ken Goe of The Oregonian, , UO officials are essentially declining to comment.
Goe writes that:

(Oregon coach Chip) Kelly also refused to discuss UW athletic director’s Scott Woodward’s swipe at Oregon academics and the state of Oregon’s support for higher education.
In the course of his comments, Woodward called Oregon “an embarrassment” as an academic institution during the Huskies’ pregame show last Saturday.
Woodward apologized on Monday.
UO athletic department spokesman Dave Williford said Oregon officials decided not to comment, either on Woodward’s original remarks or his apology.
When asked about it Tuesday, Kelly said: “I’m not going there. I haven’t seen the whole transcript. I can’t comment. I don’t know exactly what he said. I don’t exactly what the context was in which it was said. I’ll let our administration and their administration handle that one.”
