Several news outlets are reporting that the NCAA is investigating two street agents, Will Lyles and Baron Flenory, in connection with over $28,000 that the University of Oregon paid the two of them for "recruiting packages." Here's where you can catch up on all the latest details, but Oregon itself is not under investigation just yet.
Why do we care in SEC land?
1. It sheds more light on the NCAA's ongoing fight against agents.
2. Both teams in last year's national title game are now going through recruiting scandals.
3. ESPN's sources are saying that the NCAA is looking into Lyles' relationship with fellow street agent Sean Nelson from Thibodaux, Louisiana. He's a player in the investigations into Auburn's recruiting practices, and he was involved with Oregon RB Lache Seastrunk, who attended Auburn's infamous Big Cat Weekend.
