Out to Sea: Seastrunk Leaves Oregon

A few weeks' ago we asked whether the current crapshoot at Oregon could possibly be bigger than the problems surrounding Oregon and Ohio State.

Anyway, the problem has gone now that Ducks running back Lache Seastrunk has been 'given unconditional release by Ducks coach Chip Kelly', according to ESPN.

There are worries about Seastrunk's recruitment - including tens of thousands of dollars handed to recruiter Willie Lyles.

According to the article, Seastrunk tried to distance himself from all issues, but it must have been difficult in Eugene, Oregon, where football season and the preseason hype has taken new levels - particularly with a monster Week 1 game against LSU and a potential second straight trip to the National Championship Game potentially on the horizon.
