Oregon won’t appeal sanctions from COI

Rob Mullens AP

Oregon received good news earlier today when the findings into its NCAA case on recruiting violations were released. The Ducks came out of the two-year-plus investigation with minimal scholarship losses and some recruiting restrictions, but no bowl ban. In fact, the stiffest sanction was placed on former head coach Chip Kelly, who was given an 18-month show-cause penalty.

We hinted earlier that it would be surprising if UO appealed the decision. And they won’t. Speaking during a press conference Wednesday afternoon, athletic director Rob Mullens (pictured) confirmed the program will not fight the COI’s ruling.

This investigation has been going on a long time and the report says the university was cooperative the entire way. Given how well Oregon came out of it, there was no debate about what to do.

“No one wants to be in this position. So I don’t think anybody’s happy. We’re pleased to be at the end of the process,” Mullens said.

    Shocking revelation…

    When someone gives you a sweet deal, you take it.

    Chip Kelly got out at the right time, they can’t touch him now. Oregon got of easy, a few scholarships, visitations, no post season hiatus, no long lasting or debilitating penalties. Oregon got off easy. If I would have been Mullens, I would have read the stipulations and signed it quickly before anyone changed their mind.

    Of course they won’t. They weren’t punished.

    Appeal? That is truly funny. Oregon is sitting back laughing and popping champagne bottles with Phil Knight right now.

    I did hear that the sanctions are to include having to wear the same uniform combinations for 2 games in a row.

    How will they ever survive?

    That is not much more than a mosquito bite. Just a minor annoyance. Carry on like before.

    If people actually go back and study NCAA sanctions, you would find no two punishments are the same. And you will find alot of Schools and coaches treated unfairly. But that’s how they operate. Cases going through the courts will soon expose corrupt individuals, and those who have done nothing about it! The individuals involved are higher up’s, and it will be a glorious Day! Cheaters need to pay….all of them!
