Oregon may be in serious trouble

In response to recent questions concerning Oregon's $25,000 payment to Will Lyles in February 2010 for 2011 recruiting info, Oregon released materials it supposedly received from Lyles. Why is this a big deal? Because the materials contain almost exclusively players that graduated in 2009. To further substantiate the shadiness, Lyles has been accused of being a street agent in the past, the purchase of materials came not long after Oregon signed 2 recruits whom Lyles supposedly advised, there appear to have been a large number of phone calls between Lyles and Oregon (more than one would expect from a purchase of recruiting information), and there are questions regarding Lyles' service's compliance with NCAA regulation 13.14.3 (e.g. his website, which appears to have stolen this website, allegedly did not offer prices until after people started digging in March). Also, the materials released by Oregon have titles that read "Player Profiles 2011" (except page 25, which has a 2009 title), so somebody consciously tried to sell 2009 recruits as 2011 recruits.
