Chip Kelly knew when to jump -- Oregon admits 'major' violations

    Knock me over with a tail feather. The Ducks have proposed a two-year probation and scholarship reduction. But negotiations are ongoing and there's still significant disagreement with the NCAA about some of the Willie Lyles case, the "oral reports" that the Ducks think is secondary and the NCAA believes is also a major violation.

    Alabama and Texas don't like all this new money sniffing around that championship trophy.

    Anybody see where the NCAA director of enforcement is headed? Auburn. And no, not in his NCAA capacity, but as Auburn's new director of compliance.
    You wonder if the job offer came before, during or after his "investigation" found nothing.

    PS - Nice news dump Oregon. Well played.

    Yeah, I think we've figured out why Kelly had a change of heart in regards to going to Philly... :D

    What happens to the other schools who were involved with Lyles?

    I don't think Lyles acted as a "human GPS" (Oregon's own words) with the other programs he dealt with, and personally escorted them to meet with players, actions the NCAA deemed created a major recruiting advantage.

    And has been said, it's no coincidence this document dump - nearly seven months after the FOI was filed - occurred when it did, on a day when it's reasonable to assume it would be lost in the news cycle.

    Willamette is about to go on probation.

    If Saban ever jumps to the NFL, I think that will be the sign that the NCAA is circling Alabama.

    I'm not saying that's happening, but it certainly seems to be a tell when a top coach (not including Schiano or the Syracuse guy in that) jumps.

    Did Lyles get as personally involved with any other recruit as he did with Seastrunk? He took guardianship away from the kid's mom so he could co-sign the letter of intent, for Christ's sake.

    Nobody in the SEC is going on probation, at least nobody good.

    It certainly makes you wonder.

    I would bet that whatever Auburn did the year Cam Newton was there was about 1,000 times worse that what happened at Oregon or what happened at Ohio State. Tressel lying to investigators is a different story, but still...

    Death penalty?

    Or at least make them go back to regular uniforms, that don't glow in the dark.

    Seriously, Kelly had to know. So why should he get off scott free while the new coaches and incoming players suffer the penalty?

    Yeah they should kick him out of the NFL right, for not breaking any laws or doing anything that is against NFL rules?
