Yesterday I discussed MGoBlog and how they made their blog “disappear” for two full days after the loss to Appalachian State. It was very amateurish and very cowardly, and we all had a good laugh at Michigan’s expense.
I also stated that the recent revelations about Michigan cheating in order to get their three solid wins last year would probably make Brian and MGoBlog want to run back into their hole again.
One thing I didn’t discuss is that when MGo finally returned to the blogosphere after Appalachian State, their banner was graced with a picture of a crying baby. Who knew that a crying baby would be their new head coach???
My God this just gets better by the minute, doesn’t it????
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!!!!
In case you haven’t heard, Louisiana-Monroe beat Alabama in football two years ago. So did Florida International.
The victories were earned today when Alabama had a large hammer brought down on their heads, as sixteen different Alabama sports were found to be in violation of NCAA rules and regulations, and a massive amount of wins by the Tide have been wiped off the books over the past few years.
Alabama will be forced to vacate 21 football wins that came under the watch of former coach Mike Shula and current coach Nick Saban, the university said in a release.
The football program, which will not lose future scholarships, and the other 15 teams have been put on three years’ probation — the third probation penalty for university athletics in the past decade. Alabama also was ordered to pay a $43,900 fine.
Bama’s probation will last until 2012.
But here’s where I think the NCAA is hiding something….the violations were all in relation to athletes illegally and improperly receiving textbooks for classes. I believe the infractions are surrounding something far more nefarious.
Ask yourself this – do you REALLY believe that Alabama athletes actually know how to read, let alone use textbooks, let alone go to CLASS? Need I remind you, the state of Alabama has a failing grade according to the US Chamber Of Commerce.
These kids can barely piss their own pants, let alone decipher what a textbook is used for. Which leads us to the obvious question;
What is the NCAA hiding?????
