Michigan Football Admits Major NCAA Violations, Cuts Practice Time, Disciplines 7 People
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.
