All of this hype over the Oregon sanctions and this is what we got? On Wednesday morning the NCAA and Oregon released the findings from the Committee on Infractions and the highlight and biggest sanctions against the Ducks for their “major violations” case? One scholarship reduction in each of the next two years, institutional wide NCAA probation for three years, and football official visits limited to 37 for the next three years.
OHHHH, gee….. Way to scare the crap out of these guys, huh? Notice what was missing from that list above? Oregon will not receive any postseason ban at all and that’s a massive win for both the Pac-12 and themselves. After all, the conference stands to gain $6 million should they get two teams into the final year of the BCS (and that sure looks likely on paper). That’s not a small chunk of change to be eligible for if you ask me.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Oregon was hit with NCAA sanctions that included probation, the loss of scholarships and a ban on using recruiting services.

The NCAA has done it again. After a two-year investigation, the NCAA slapped the Oregon Ducks football program on the wrist, if you want to even call it that. Because the Oregon Ducks cooperated with the NCAA, they seemingly decided to go easy on them despite their violations. GoDucks.com provides details on the violations and the penalties:

So, along with the other things going on this morning, the University of Oregon learned what the NCAA has decided to do with the charges of recruiting violations and using a non-compliant recruiting service (Wille Lyles).
