The sources said Oregon is now anticipating an appearance before the NCAA's committee on infractions (COI) this spring – something the school was hoping to avoid following an investigation into the football program's financial relationship with prep adviser Will Lyles.

BS!! Justin said Uncle Phil wants to run a clean program
just depends on one's moral compass I guess
Freedom through Vigilance
I could not have put it better:
Chris Huston @HeismanPundit
The NCAA has already decided what it's going to do to Oregon. Now it just has to reverse-engineer the process.
"It's what a brother would do for another brother"
I really do feel that the nzaa is going to hammer Oregon. Chip Kelly is headed to the nfl.
All that's left to decipher, is just how big of a hammer the NCAA will ultimately use.
Small, Medium or Large?
My guess, is that they'll force the Floats to use one uniform variation: One each for home and away games, and call it a day.
#1, have no idea what that means from Huston. #2, CH is a USC hating jerk who despises Kiffin and hides behind obscure user names on boards all over the internet where he never misses a chance to trash the Trojans.
1) What's not to get?
2) Umm, what? He used to work for USC's sports info department and I've never known him to be a hater. More people would call him a USC homer actually...
For whatever dislike you have of Chris, he has good sources on this.
Winning the academic award in the SEC is sort of like winning the special olympics. Even if you win, you are still a retard.
I agree with Chris Houston. Regardless of his feelings on Kiffin or the program...he isn't the only one either. But he is right on the NCAA here.
The NCAA will pick the punishment and find a way to make the "evidence" fit the punishment.
We may or may not like the result.
I hate Oregon, most of their fans are obnoxious, but I hate the NCAA more. I do not wish any fanbase what USC went through.
Hope they get it where the sun don't shine...

All that cheating, and no national championships.
If Kelly leaves does he still have to testify?
No and yes. If you look at the Miami case right now, the NCAA gave the the former players a dead line to speak with them and if the didn't, the NCAA took that as an admission of guilt. The reason the NCAA gave the former players a dead line because none of the players would cooperate with the NCAA. So Kelly doesn't have to speak with the NCAA but if he doesn't the NCAA will take that as an admission of guilt.
If Kelly wants to come back to the college ranks not testifying could make that difficult.
The NCAA could make any ruling they want if Kelly refuses to put forth his side of the story
"He used to work for USC's sports info department and I've never known him to be a hater. More people would call him a USC homer actually"
He got fired, is very bitter. I don't use the word hater because it is non sensical, no offense. He is so far from a homer it is ridiculous. One reason you do not know this is that he spews all his anti USC bile under bogus handles. FK says he has good sources, he would know far better than I do (and I don't care because I know he dislikes USC with a passion). I do know this, he has no inside sources at the NCAA, again, no disrespect to FK. I would venture to say those of you who defend Huston have not met him and do not really know him. A lot of people are good at punting on fronts.
In this case all of that is moot. The point is that the NCAA has an M.O. They know exactly how they want to punish a school and then mold the narrative to fit their purposes. It's got nothing to do with inside sources or the person's feelings towards USC.

100% agree with Gabe here. I don't know his background or WHY he hates USC even moreso Kiffin but my goodness no idea how anyone could say he's a USC homer.
Give him a follow on Twitter he's bashed USC and Kiffin year round. The only reason I follow him was for his heisman straw polls but now that I think about it they get replayed elsewhere and he's such a hater he's not worth the follow. Going to unfollow as we speak!
So much this.
"Here are provided seats of meditative joy, where shall rise again the destined reign of Troy." Virgil
I follow him on twitter and have noticed no more criticism of Kiffin and USC than any other USC person I follow. There was a lot to criticize this year and honestly I don't remember him being particularly harsh.
"I follow him on twitter and have noticed no more criticism of Kiffin and USC than any other USC person I follow. There was a lot to criticize this year and honestly I don't remember him being particularly harsh. "
Then keep liking and following him. It is just an opinion. I have observed him for so many years doing the same trashing of the program that I see an agenda and a major chip on his shoulder so I ignore everything he says on any subject.
CH is a very thoughtful, well researched football analyst (who posts frequently on this site and rivals) and by all accounts a huge USC fan. If you don't think Kiffin deserves criticism for this season, then you either are comfortable with mediocrity and don't understand USC's storied football tradition or are a complete moron. Out of courtesy I will leave it at that.

One UO insider said the NCAA had initially taken a bowl ban "off the table" as part of the summary disposition. Oregon had been willing to accept recruiting penalties and scholarship reductions, the source said.
Now it's unclear what will happen.
