Michigan punishes itself

CFB: Michigan St vs Michigan OCT 25

Well, today is the day that Michigan made the announcement about what they were going to do about Rich Rodriguez’s carelessness and neglect towards their once-storied football program.

According to the ESPN article, Michigan is imposing sanctions on their own program by reducing practice time by 130 hours over the next 2 years, starting this summer; cut number of assistants from five to three and banned them from practices, games or coaching meetings for the rest of 2010; recommendation for two years of probation. The school said it should not be tagged as a repeat offender despite a 2003 scandal in the basketball program. Also, they sent letters of reprimand issued to seven people — including head coach Rich Rodriguez. But, Michigan didn’t take away any scholarships.

For those of you with nothing else better to do, you can read UM’s official response here.

Personally, I also think they should forfeit the 8 wins they’ve accumulated the past two years under Rodriguez as well. I would say that they need to forfeit any bowl victories, but, because they have an incompetent coach, they haven’t even sniffed a bowl since Rodriguez came to town. I can’t wait to see the NCAA lay the hammer down on this Big 10+1 program. I think it’s great when this program is going down the crapper faster down to South Central Louisiana State University Muddogs-levels. Not even The Waterboy can help this team! Keep this up, RichRod, and you’ll be applying for janitorial jobs at Glenville State.
