Rumors beginning to circulate that Oregon could get whacked very hard by NCAA within the week ... worse than many expect.......

But some are saying that is not the case since they haven't been notified....

A friend of mine with inside info on this sort of thing texted me last night with the same message, Oregon could be about to get whacked hard. There have certainly been some law/NCAA issues there in recent years from Masoli to Cliff Harris and LeGarrette Blount. I wouldn't be shocked.

Ditto-

I found this article a little whilel ago.

The Oregon Ducks have been through a lot in the last couple of years under Chip Kelly, including a BCS Championship Game loss in the closing seconds to Auburn and a slew of marijuana arrests. But it's the recruitment of 5-star running back Lache Seastruck that could be the most damaging, as rumors have flown around the Internet today suggesting Oregon is on the verge of being heavily sanctioned by the NCAA.

Oregon paid $25,000 to Willie Lyles and Complete Scouting Services in 2010 after Seastrunk committed to the Ducks, and Lyles' tight relationship has long been suggested to be an NCAA violation if it's deemed that he steered the talented back to Eugene. Coach Kelly faced a rash of questions at Media Day last year, and Seastrunk fled Eugene for Waco, where he's set to play for the Baylor Bears this fall.

So on the whole, there's plenty of merit for sanctions to be levied down on the Ducks. But, the chances of sanctions coming down now, with just 18 days until the start of the season, has got to be slim. Especially, considering the source of the rumors: message boards.

Chris Larsen of ESPN in Wisconsin took to Twitter to fuel the fire, tweeting the rumored penalty for the Ducks, which ironically read as the exact same sentence that USC got back in 2010. Larsen was quick to explain got his information came from forums, and subsequently changed his Twitter handle and made his account protected after receiving a bevy of flack from people calling out his reporting. Here's a retweeted version of Larsen's original tweet, by John Hunt of the The Oregonian.

Not even close. Basketball has all the one and dones which basically requires them to take a basketweaving course for one semester to remain eligible then they leave. You have creeps like calipari who get kids into college by hook or by crook. Football still has a chance
