The NCAA's ongoing investigation into the Oregon football program appears to be crawling toward conclusion. It may still be months before a final verdict is rendered, but documents released Monday reveal the NCAA and the school concluded “major” violations were committed. The parties do not agree on the severity of the violations, which will necessitate Oregon appearing before the Committee on Infractions sometime this spring or summer. Oregon has proposed two years probation with a reduction of one scholarship each of the next three seasons.

The NCAA stripped Oregon of a scholarship in each of the next two seasons and put the program on probation for three years, opting against stiffer penalties such as a bowl ban despite issuing a show-cause order against former coach Chip Kelly, who apologized to the school, its fans and its players. The NCAA's Division I Committee on Infractions released a report Wednesday that said Kelly failed to monitor the program for its improper involvement with Willie Lyles and his Houston-based recruiting service.

Steven Forsyth, who died at the hands of a masked gunman in an Oregon mall, was an "amazing man, very caring, very loving," a friend said, while his family remembered his sense of humor and zest for life. Forsyth, 45, who was married with two children, coached youth sports in West Linn, Ore. He also operated a kiosk in the Clackamas Town Center in suburban Portland, where he sold wooden coasters.

University of Oregon junior Alex Rovello drowned Saturday after failing to surface following a 60-foot dive into Tamolitch Falls in Willamette National Forest in western Oregon. Friends and bystanders tried to rescue the tennis player when he failed to surface after diving from a cliff into the Blue Pool at the base of the falls, but they were hampered by the deep, 37-degree water, the Linn County Sherriff's Department said. "The Oregon tennis family is devastated by the loss of Alex," Oregon men's tennis Coach Nils Schyllander said . "He was an amazing person and teammate and his spirit will live on forever with all of us who were fortunate enough to have known him. " The popular swimming hole, located about two miles north of a campground, is so remote that one witness needed to run two miles before getting cell service to call 911, KTVB.com reported . Rovello's body was recovered by dive teams and deputies more than 30 feet from the water's surface.
