Oregon No Longer Ducking the NCAA?

It's been a while since the NCAA formally announced they would be investigating the Ducks for their involvement with Texas "scout" Willie Lyles and yesterday documents were released that illustrate exactly what the Ducks are agreeing they did wrong. With the potential of receiving "repeat offender" status, the Ducks could be in for some heavy sanctions:

The school has acknowledged "at least one major violations" by its football coaches alleged by the NCAA during the ongoing investigation into the Ducks' recruiting practices 2008-11.

According to the Oregonian, the school has proposed to self-impose a two-year probation and reduction of scholarships for the next three seasons.

Sounds almost exactly like what Ohio State proposed during its own NCAA investigation. The NCAA ended up handing out a little more than just that.
