UM: Football

The story about allegations of NCAA rules violations in UM’s football program gets more national attention, this time on the New York Times’ college sports blog, The Quad: “Dennis Dodd of writes that this report adds to the pressure that has been building on [UM coach Rich] Rodriguez. (Dodd also drops in this great tidbit: Mike Barwis, the Michigan strength and conditioning coach who is mentioned prominently in the Free Press story, used to have pet wolves.)” [Source] And the Associated Press reports that UM athletic director Bill Martin has launched an internal investigation into the allegations.
