Oregon Football Releases Willie Lyles Emails From Hours Before Original Story Broke

The Oregon Ducks have shared two more pieces of information that they received from Willie Lyles as part of that famed 2011 National Recruiting Package for which they paid $25,000. As George Schroeder shares, the two emails from Lyles are dated Feb. 17 and March 3 -- say, did anything else happen regarding Oregon football and Willie Lyles on March 3?

The emails included spreadsheets on 2011 high school sophomore football players from four states. Schroeder describes them as being of higher quality than the laughable collection unveiled June 20, which included multiple players long already committed to other schools.

Hard not to look at the dates of those emails and think of this as anything but a rush attempt to come up with something of substance to show the NCAA. The college football offseason is the best of all offseasons.
