Something is not right with the college football world <-- bold. As schools and conferences battle over such prizes as Syracuse football while there are actual games being played on actual fields, the NCAA picks a Saturday to send a letter of inquiry to the Oregon Ducks.
This, of course, proves the NCAA hates you. Or that Oregon was smart about when to let everybody know it had received the notice. Whatever, Oregon.
This isn't a surprising step in the NCAA's investigation into Oregon, but it's an important one. Essentially, the NCAA has informed Oregon an investigation is underway. We'd already known Willie Lyles had met with NCAA investigators about Oregon, so it's pretty much not news at all. But formalities are formalities, let's get ready for more on this story, and let's get back to enjoying our Saturdays.
