Ducks' football program getting ready to get porked?

    We only can hope:

    "Oregon is likely headed toward a hearing with the NCAA committee on infractions after it could not resolve an investigation of the football coaching staff's use of a scouting service ... "

    They spent a lot of money on lawyers to try and nip this in the bud - if it didn't work I'm expecting a bowl ban for at least a year. I figure Oregon would agree to anything that wouldn't actually sting the program like a probation with no scholarship hit or minor recruiting penalties like coaches not being allowed to contact recruits etc.

    i think it's going to make an example of the oregon/hired guns situation. i think oregon loses multiple years and scholarships.

    They can keep their scholarships and play in bowls, just limit them to one home and one away uniform for a season.

    And their coach, perhaps to the Panthers.

    That's the popular opinion... I think the only thing that would be in the way of that happening would be if the Eagles decided they wanted Gruden and Gruden wanted to come back.

    Well put.

    Seriously, I think the Ducks are in serious hot water. The payments to that "scouting service" just reek.

    Good god, man, show some compassion. That would kill em.

    Gotta say I still remain skeptical that the NCAA will hammer Team Nike. They'll get something, but I doubt it'll be anything crippling.

    I think the NCAA has been wanting a reason to hammer Team Nike for several years now. I won't be shedding a tear for them.

    Used to be a team went on probation and it usually included a ban on TV appearance. I guess the TV money got to be too large for that to happen, which is another indication of the sad state of college sports today.

    Didn't LSU pay Willie Lyles as well?
