Are you tired yet of talking about Willie Lyles? Me too, but that's all the quack there is today. But hey, at least Oregon isn't the worst offending team in the spotlight right now. Thanks UNC!
- Last night, the University of Oregon released more five documents that were sent to Oregon by Will Lyles, that were inadvertently left out of the document release on Monday. These were profiles on 2012 and 2013 recruits, and the delivery was made in February 2011, almost a year after the $25,000 payment was made. I find the date of this delivery intriguing. Did Oregon expect to continue working with Lyles? Predictably, Oregon is staying tight-lipped. They are continuing to work with the NCAA, but not so much with the media, who they are simply giving the old "No Comment."
- This isn't sitting right with George Schroeder, who is channeling his inner-Canzano this morning. There are so many questions! And Oregon's just not answering them! It seems like George just wants some nice simple answers, and I don't believe they exist.
- Andy Staples of SI is also on the "more questions" angle. The main questions seem to be, just what did Oregon get for 25k, because what Oregon has released is obviously not worth that amount.
- Peter Bean, founder of BurntOrangeNation.com, has a piece on the Will Lyles situation. Peter comes from the entire situation from a pretty cynical point of view. He says Oregon fans should be worried because of the environment, and because Oregon's explanations (to the media) have been insufficient. I think there are some serious flaws with Peter's piece, but it's well written, and it's good to see what those around the country think. While there is a worry that the NCAA could make an example of Oregon, I'm not going to spend any time fretting about it.
That's all for now. Got anything else, hopefully non-Lyles related? Drop it in the comments. GO DUCKS!
