Colt Lyerla quit yesterday.
He was suspended from Saturday's game for a violation of team rules, had a meeting with the coach Sunday, announced he that he loved Oregon and was leaving on good terms. He's not transferring, but rather dropping out of school to prepare for the NFL Combine and a shot at pro football.
The decision leaves a big question mark on his resume with pro scouts, and he'll be asked a lot of questions about it in the interview rooms in Indianapolis.

“I love everyone at Oregon; everyone’s on good terms, I believe...

Earlier in the year, I wrote an article about the Ducks’ 2013 prospects without Chip Kelly at the helm. I guessed that the talent of our athletes would hold true despite some scheme changes, and that the blueprint for success at our school had already been laid. Now that I have had a chance to observe some of the fine points of new head coach...
