Immediately following the 2007 loss to Appalachian State, the most prominent Michigan blog, MGoBlog did the right thing and they took their lumps like men.
Oh, wait…..no they didnt. They shut down the site for two full days, much like what you’d expect out of complete cowards.
Expect similar behavior very very soon…..breaking news has the Wolverine faithful looking for another hole to crawl into.
Current Michigan players have recently described multiple situations in which their head coach, Rich Rodriquez, has knowingly violated NCAA rules and regulations.
The University of Michigan football team consistently has violated NCAA rules governing off-season workouts, in-season demands on players and mandatory summer activities under coach Rich Rodriguez, numerous players told the Free Press.
Players on the 2008 and 2009 teams described training and practice sessions that far exceeded limits set by the NCAA, which governs college athletics. The restrictions are designed to protect players’ well-being, ensure adequate study time and prevent schools from gaining an unfair competitive advantage.
Let’s get this straight…players from LAST year’s team were breaking rules that are designed to prevent schools from gaining an unfair advantage? So, they cheated and still finished 3-9?
Eleven Warriors tweets that San Diego State University was put on a 2-year probation after similar allegations were brought to light….and with actual CURRENT players making these allegations, it’s not looking pretty for Michigan to get out of this one unscathed.
Now granted, practicing on Sundays is not really up to speed with serious misconduct….like brokering a cocaine deal when you don’t have cocaine….but it’s the stuff that the NCAA does take action on. This one is not going to get swept under the rug soon.
Fortunately for Buckeye fans, this one will keep us entertained for a long time.
Unfortunately for Buckeye fans, we won’t likely get to laugh at Rodriquez for years to come, because if this pans out the way we think it will, the Michigan boosters will liekly run him out on a rail. After all, they didn’t pony up 4 million dollars to West Virginia to buy a 3-9 coach who gets their team banned from postseason.
Somebody get the popcorn, this one’s going to be entertaining!!!!
