    NCAA hands Ducks 3-year probation

    The NCAA has placed Oregon's football program on probation for three years and taken away a scholarship over that same span, through June 2016, for recruiting violations under previous coach Chip Kelly.

    The NCAA's Division I Infractions Committee released a report on Wednesday that found Kelly and the university failed to monitor the program.

    The NCAA has been looking into Oregon's recruiting practices since questions arose over a 2010 payment of $25,000 to Willie Lyles and his Houston-based recruiting service, Complete Scouting Services. Lyles had a connection with an Oregon recruit.

    The NCAA also reduced Oregon's official paid visits from 56 to 37 for the next three academic years, reduced its evaluation days for each of the next three seasons and banned the program from using recruiting services during the probation period.

    I kinda thought this was coming. Over the last couple of weeks, there have been a few highly touted prospects who have narrowed their choices down and Oregon was not on any of those lists. Funny how these things work.

    Yep, your right Josee. This is little more then a slap on the wrist. Could have been, and IMO, should have been a lot worse.

    A slap on the wrist is brutal compared to this.

    Not surprised, everybody knows Oregon was cheating as well as a lot of top programs. They have the #1 booster in the nation; it's obvious.
