Oregon is dealing with several NCAA issues stemming from former scout Will Lyles and certainly knows when to dump release information regarding the case. The school released two heavily redacted documents late Friday afternoon to local papers as part of an open records request, detailing proposed findings of violations and shining a little light on an investigation that has been going on for several months following a Yahoo! Sports investigative report released last March.

According to the Eugene Register-Guard, the Oregon athletic department agreed that the football program did not follow NCAA bylaws and was not adequately monitored regarding use of recruiting/scouting services. The "proposed findings of violations" were sent from the NCAA enforcement staff to the school but is not a formal Notice of Allegations, which the report noted had not been received as of Friday.

At least three services did not conform to NCAA rules according to the documents and the program exceeded the number of permitted coaches recruiting by one between 2009 and 2011. Head coach Chip Kelly is believed to be near the center of the probe regarding his involvement. The school has retained attorney Michael Glazier, a partner in the firm Bond, Schoeneck & King, for his expertise in dealing with NCAA cases.

Oregon received a notice of inquiry in September to mark the formal start of the NCAA investigation into the Ducks' recruiting and use of scouting services. Lyles has claimed, among other things, that the school paid him $25,000 for influence with recruits in the state of Texas.

Oregon needs to follow the UNC-Ch model - deny, delay, hire legal staff and hide all the evidence.  It's working at UNC.  The Ducks need to smarten up.  They also need to get Larry Scott to go with them to the NCAA inquiry in Indy.  UNC did that as well.

Hey Chip, I bet Colts may have a job for you since Tressel is now in Akron.

This can't be good news for the Quack attack. 

I guess it was a smart move to acknowledge the violations after recruiting season, but this doesn't bode well for the future of their program.  Might be time for the Duckies to lawyer up & try to get a probation w/ out any real penalties or sanctions against them.

I bet Chip Kelly wishes that he took the Bucs job right about now.

Uh oh!!!!  Of course the Duck bandwagon fans (98% of the fan base) will continue to wear their blinders. I can't wait to listen to the pounding of feet as they jump off that wagon!

Haha I was on here when the story of Darron Thomas released and people were trying to figure out why he would leave.  Well I told you the NCAA was coming and Oregon was on the verge of trouble but some people (Oregon fans) were too stubborn to believe me.  We all know that there are probably other schools that have done things along the lines of this but the FACT is Oregon got caught and only now admit it, so now they deserve a severe punishment for it.  Especially since chip Kelly continually lied about knowing nothing early on in the investigation.  Once the punishment comes we will see the Oregon fan base drop back down to where it was before everyone wanted to jump on board while they were cheating.



This came out last spring. The NCAA opened this investigation and informed the Ducks. While everyone was tight lipped as far as the media is concerned (this is nothing new - Lamike when he dislocated his elbow among others). Who knows what was said or released to the NCAA. As far as punishment, I doubt this is as serious as tOSU or Miami. A slap on the wrist is what I would expect. To many coaches recruiting is'nt the worst voilation ever recorded. BTW I was a Duck fan since the 60's and will remain so till the end. I will not be jumping anywhere.

Doubtless, mottley2189, whereupon the Pac-12 will be restored to its rightful order, wherein USC is never given more than a slap on the wrist for its unending slime trail of corruption. Tell me true, has any Trojan athlete ever successfully sat his own exams? Bought his own car? Hell, done his own laundry? (I'd ask you if any had wiped their own, but isn't that what USC coeds are for?)

Having one additional Scout is not good - kinda like oversigning.
