07:14 AM ET 05.23 | Is timing everything? University of Oregon president Michael Gottfredson received a notice of allegations in the Ducks' ongoing NCAA investigation of its football recruiting practices on Dec. 5, 2012. The document was released [Wednesday] by the university in response to a public records request made by The Register-Guard. A letter from the NCAA to Gottfredson detailing the administrative process of the investigation is followed by seven specific allegations of wrong-doing by the Ducks under former head coach Chip Kelly. All seven closely resemble -- almost to the word -- allegations listed in Oregon's failed attempt at a summary disposition resolution as submitted to the NCAA in October of last year.

The NCAA enforcement staff reportedly stated they had "no finding for lack of institutional control and no finding of unethical conduct" during the ongoing investigation. According to the reports, the $25,000 payment is not even the primary issue for the NCAA. Instead, the major violation is alleged because the NCAA considered Lyles a "booster" for the school who acted as a "human GPS" for top talent.

Forgot to add this part!!!!

Lyles was scrutinized heavily for providing oral reports to Oregon and outdated recruiting material when his company, Complete Scouting Services, was tied to possible NCAA violations. Oregon agrees that it improperly used three scouting services -- CSS, Elite Scouting Services and New Level Athletics, during 2008-10 by accepting these oral reports on players when only written reports and videos are permitted.

The so-called scouting reports were just a cover-up for what they really hired Willie lyles to do......convince LaMichael James and Seastrunk to come to Oregon. I think it's crazy they pay some guy 25k to buddy buddy up with teenagers and manipulate them towards where to go to college. Not to help the kid but to help themselves.

Everyone knows the only cheating that goes on is in the SEC, well, except for Urban Meyer, but he learned everything he knows about cheating from when he was in the SEC.

If I remember correctly, Lyles was also connected to LSU and Texas, but I'm not sure if he was consider a "booster"???

Well that could be true that Willie Lyles was hired to convince "LaMichael James and Seastrunk to come to Oregon", But if you were to penalize "every" school for hiring a so called "booster" to convince players to go to a certain school, then most every college would be on prebation!!!

He wasnt considered a Booster, and no personal checks were given to him from LSU/Miles... They paid what everyone was paying to his business/employer.. @$kNCAA cleared LSU regarding Lyles... Wasnt really an issue...

Well according to my comment #7, it really wasn't an issue about the "so called" $25,000 check, which I not so sure even existed!!!

Conjecture....may be true may not be....but this guy didn't show up wearing and Oregon hat. He supposedly represented a scouting service to schools but in reality he was steering kids towards Oregon for money and that's not how he represented himself. Even LaMichael referred to him as an "advisor".....but he was on Oregon's payroll. Do you think these kids knew that?
