First of all, where's Bill Martin? I think we're still paying him, right? Regardless, Dave Brandon (are we paying 2 AD's?) led the presser today that ultimately revealed a notice from the NCAA that contained ticky-tack violations, and no surprises beyond our internal investigation. It seemed to outline a loosely managed paper trail that blurred the lines of what "stretching" is and when it is or isn't ok to punish an athlete.
How many feel good stories were there about 6am summer stadium laps under Lloyd? Braylon. Arrington. Askew. Just to name a few.
Complete and utter bullshit.
In an anonymous survey I conducted with my own common sense, I concluded that every other team in the country blurred the same lines. The difference between Michigan and everybody else? Rosenberg's hard-on for a local pulitzer.
More later. Maybe.
Update: Violations allege Michigan went over the 20 hour allotted practice time by 20 minutes...in October of 2008. I think the investigators just wanted to come to Zingerman's.
