    All kinds of whispers regarding a new scandal hitting Oregon relating to academics and that Chip Kelly may need to get out of Dodge. Oregon fans/boards seem to be flipping their ****.

    Anyone hear anything or have a link to anything resembling a credible report?

    What are you talking about? I am normally the first one to hear about odd rumors and this is a first for me. Which board is the one thats talking about it since eDuck free and paid subscription boards are quiet on any odd rumor.

    Well, I do find it very suspicious the CanDuck hasn't been around much lately.

    Still an investigation. Also, there's the car loaner to a player by a faculty member. I don't think that was settled and that one's so documented that it has to be a minor infraction on its own (something bigger if it's part of a bunch of other stuff going on).

    This academic thing is separate, though, and has some Oregon fans in a panic.

    Saw it on the Buffs Rivals board after someone emailed me that he'd heard something too and I should take a look at the thread. He wanted to know if I'd heard anything and I hadn't.

    The car loaner you are referring too was involving Cliff Harris and that has already been cleared by the NCAA so that is old news. I just trolled all the other Oregon boards I don't use and didn't see anything.

    you know the NCAA would love to beat down Oregon. Show everyone that they are in charge. I see a loss of two total scholarships spread out over 15 years.

    Prove to the world they are on top of things.

    Ha! I knew it. Nike is importing term papers from 12 year old kids in Malaysian sweatshops. Hammer the ****ers. This is bigger than the NCAA, bigger than even football. Those poor kids losing their youth and vision, and not their virginity, staring at outdated CRTs 19 hours a day and twice on Sunday. The horror. End the travesty now before Jane gets involved and finds one that looks like a little bug eyed seal.

    That's because you spend all your time on AB instead of on the Ducks' boards where should be. :smile2:

    Apparently Kenjon Barner has been rolling around campus in a orange Camero with Black racing stripes and his number 24 engraved in the tail lights. Real discrete.

    Isn't denial one of the first stages of grief? Or is it a river in Africa? I forget.

    Denial? Not really since I normally skip that stage and go straight to the anger.

    I've warned you repeatedly to get off this sinking ship and become a Buff. If you want any street cred, you do it now. You won't be accepted in a couple years when CU is back to winning and Oregon goes down in flames - that would be bandwagoning.

    I have no insight into the ducks but I'm not hearing anything. Haven't listened to local radio in a few days.

    Mike Bellotti is getting 500K from the PERS (state run retirement system) and the newspapers are making a bit stink about it but that's about it.

    Ringo reported that Barnett is making $600,000 a year off CO's PERA. Not sure how that works.

    Holy cow. I think I know how this works. Barnett was a teacher down in the Springs for a while, IIRC. Probably about 10-15 years. He did some coaching at Air Academy, Ft. Lewis, then CU for a while, then Northwestern, then back to CU. All that time in Colorado was spent as a public employee. The way PERA works is that you get a portion of your HIGHEST salary for your pension. The longer you spent in the system, the larger percentage of your highest salary you receive. GB's highest salary was probably around $1.5MM/Yr. So PERA is contractually responsible to pay him a certain percentage of that figure.

    Great. Just freaking great.
