The Will Lyles saga is finally ending. It's been a couple long years, but Oregon the NCAA will issue the resolution of it's investigation into Oregon tomorrow.

It's the moment we've been waiting for. Christmas Eve is upon us, and Mark Emmert is Santa. According to Rob Moseley and many, many other sources, the NCAA will finally release its report on Oregon.

The report will be sent to reporters tomorrow at 7:30am, and there will be a teleconference at 8am. This will contain everything. What Oregon did, what Oregon didn't do, and most importantly, the penalties the NCAA will hand down. Assuming that Oregon does not appeal the penalties, it will all finally be over.

And what a ride it's been. The original report by Charles Robinson of Yahoo, detailing Oregon's payments to Will Lyles and Baron Flenory, came out March 2011. Oregon has had to pay over $200,000 in legal fees to handle the mess, and has led to a new director of compliance. And Oregon won two BCS games during that time.

And it couldn't come at a much better time for recruiting:

I'm expecting the news to be mostly good tomorrow, in the realm of what Dale at DuckStopsHere reported last month. But as Rob Moseley notes, no one really knows what will happen; even those at Oregon don't know what's in the report yet.

But I'm good with that. We finally have a set time when this will all be (almost definitely) over, and I'll take that.
