The University of Michigan has acknowledged that it committed four major violations in its football program and self-imposed the following sanctions:
The school has docked itself approximately 130 hours of practice and training time over the next two years — two hours for every one hour of violation, which is common in these cases. The school said it already had reduced its quality-control staff from five members to three and prohibited them from attending practices and games for the remainder of 2010. It also will keep those staffers out of coaches’ meetings, despite a new NCAA bylaw that allows them to attend.

    When is Michigan going to get rid of this moron and all his crooked staff members? This has to be the worst hiring of a head coach in NCAA history. What an embarrassment to Michigan as a State and the University of Michigan as a school. When is it going to end???

    Hopefully UoM keeps RROD for a good long time. Us Spartan fans appreciate everything he has done for MSU recruiting efforts. Keep up the [crappy] job!
