Fracas on the Farm: More on the Willie Lyles affair

For Wednesday’s morsel on the Oregon-Stanford game, we’re going to take you to Oregon’s release of more documents on the Willie Lyles affair, in which the NCAA is looking at the Ducks’ relationship with the Texas scout/agent/raconteur.

This comes courtesy of the Eugene Register-Guard. As the Guard noted, some of the documents released were in response to a public-records request made five months ago. The Ducks take longer to respond to such requests than some of Kim Kardashian’s marriages. Here’s the newspaper’s story:

For me, the most interesting nugget is that from January of 2010 to June of 2011, 18 months, recruiting assistant Josh Gibson made 178 phone calls to Willie Lyles. Let’s see, a year and a half, that’s about 540 days. So about once every three days, Gibson talked to Lyles.

That’s a lotta conversation.

Also, you’ll note the procedural timeframe in the story. The Ducks announced the letter of inquiry from the NCAA in September, and the NCAA has six months — or until March — to provide details to the school on the progress of the investigation.
