    What the heck is going on at Michigan?

    Report: Michigan players allege NCAA violations - College Football - Rivals.com

    You know it's bad there when you have players anonymously reporting violations.

    I would guess lots of teams are spending more than the max on required and "voluntary" practices.

    However, if players are self reporting this... then it means that they hate the program, and/or the staff.

    There is something shady going down in Michigan, but this (like everything else) will get swept away if they start winning. Of course, they need to start winning either this year or next or someone will be looking for a job and I doubt W. Virgina will want him back!


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: What the heck is going on at Michigan?

    Funny, just yesterday a buddy of mine (a Michigan alum) was just telling me how much he disliked RichRod because, "He's not a Michigan Man" (i.e. - he's shady, deceitful, bending the rules)

    I still think they should have shelled out the coin to get Les Miles, and I still think it's going to happen in a couple of years.

    Re: What the heck is going on at Michigan?

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Rich Rodriguez leaving his alma mater, home state, and program on the verge of dynasty to walk into the mess in Ann Arbor is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. Instead of essentially having a lifetime contract and almost guaranteed shot at BCS, he'll probably get **** canned in 2 years, and have to coach at UAB or something like that.

    I agree 100%. He had everything he would have wanted, and possibly as long as he'd want it. He made a bonehead call, and ended up at a place that doesn't necessarily want what he's bringing.

    Could not have said it better myself. What an idiot.

    its a different world at WVU vs. UM. WVU is borderline third world - many of the athletes he had at WVU would not get accepted at UM.

    Morgantown after a big win certainly resembles a war zone...

    Never mind that he's basically trying to do the same thing at Michigan that Callahan tried to do at Nebraska, which is basically teach the entire program a new language. He may not have been Michigans first choice, but I would doubt that many people would be able to say no if offered the head job at the winningest school in history.
