Oregon Football Stays Quiet About Willie Lyles Scandal

The Oregon Ducks begin their 2011 football season on Sept. 3 in Arlington, Tx., against the LSU Tigers, but at some point head coach Chip Kelly will need to address the Willie Lyles scandal that has become the latest in a string of bad news in college football.

Neither Kelly nor the university has remarked on the situation, and the only acknowledgement from the school has come on a bland statement released on July 1. But that may not be sufficient once Pac-12 media day comes on July 26. Certainly the media covering the Pac-12 won't be able to let Kelly wriggle out of this controversy.

Speculation over Kelly's tenure on the Ducks sideline has picked up in July, but the NCAA will need to complete its investigation before the university decides to take action, if any, for possible violations by the head coach.

Will Kelly be able to survive or will he be on the wrong end of a duck hunt?
