According to Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports, the Oregon Ducks will avoid any postseason ban as a result of the NCAA decision handed down today. The school will lose one scholarship each of the next two seasons. That’s about as good a result as Oregon could have hoped for, and the team will again be a national championship contender in 2013.
Meanwhile, the NCAA will issue an 18-month show cause penalty for Chip Kelly. Powerful stuff, and a strong deterrent for him not to pull a Bobby Petrino and bolt the NFL after half a season to return to college.
