    Reports: 'Major' violations occurred

    Updated: April 16, 2013, 10:21 AM ET
    ESPN.com news services

    Documents released by the University of Oregon show the school and the NCAA agree "major" violations were committed by the football program, both The Oregonian and Portland, Ore., television station KATU reported Monday.

    The documents focus heavily on Will Lyles, who ran a recruiting and scouting service and has been widely reported to be at the center of the investigation, according to the reports. Most of the alleged violations cited occurred during the tenure of former Ducks coach Chip Kelly, who left Oregon in January to become the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Another Pete Carrol 2.0, as in jumping to the NFL all of a sudden?

    Good. Yet another reason to dislike the Eagles.

    what are the colleges doing about this?

    i want to see all the colleges start looking into this and flushing out the bad. they have NO problem, let me repeat, ZERO concern when they are winning. I say good for Oregon to agree and make with the investigations, but now its time to rip over the other programs and start saying "we are taking this serious" and if schools have to lose money over this, so be it.

    Colleges can't do much about this. It's the NCAA that needs to fix this but they won't because it's about money. Chip Kelly, like a lot of other high profile coaches and programs, bring in a lot of money for the NCAA. They cheat up a storm and go to bowl games and win consistently. It's not until the program starts to decline or the HC moves on or sometimes both, that the NCAA gets interested in what's been going on at certain programs.

    It's a scam IMO.

    thank you for that. I was hoping the colleges and universities could start cleaning up their own messes, but the fact is you are correct, it is about the money.

    Emmert made a career of bailing out just before the crash and has risen to the top of the NCAA sewage plant. Of course others are going to follow his lead.

    Oregon has the biggest booster in all of college football, so this doesn't surprise me one bit.

    Are they going to follow the Lyles trail to the other schools that paid him to pay recruits? This guy is as dirty as it gets.

    I don't know why the NCAA keeps up this farce. Just make it legal and get it out in the open. It won't change much that is already happening.

    The booster for Oregon is the owner of Nike, Phil Knight; which is why they have crazy uniforms all the time. Sports Illustrated had a good article on him a while back. Basically, he is just so rich he made Oregon his toy; that is the benefit of being a booster I guess.
