The University of Michigan did not "adequately monitor" the football program and football coach Rich Rodriguez didn't monitor his quality-control staff, the NCAA noted in its Notice of Allegations delivered to the university on Monday.

Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman, incoming athletic director David Brandon and Rodriguez gave statements and took questions on Tuesday about the investigation.

A one time super power of the NCAA reduced to ashes by it's fans!

Shameful. Rich Rod, Bill Martin and Mary Sue Coleman should all be ashamed of themselves. The violations may not seem too terrible, but the fact that football staff lied about their actions is shameful. Don't blame the Quality Control people - blame the perps.

At least they can remember what it feels like to win a bowl.

Rich Rod needs his team to practice as they miss out on the practice going to a bowl provides.

The real loser in this entire situation is the Michigan State football program. After losing an average of seven out of every ten games in the entire 100 year rivalry (cough), they somehow have managed to be one of the only 5 teams to trail Michigan in the 4th quarter in 2008, and barely squeak by with a lackluster overtime win in 2009. After all the beatings they have taken. After all of the pathetic views placed on their program just for being Michigan's whipping boy,they just barely make it out of the games they had with the worst Michigan team ever? Now that my friends, is just sad. Go Blue!

Penalties will include no bowl visits for three years.

>>> OK, so what exactly is a "quality control staff?" What do their jobs consist of? How many of them are there? What do they get paid? Yeah, and where can I get a job like that? Obviously they don't do anything. Best. Job. Ever.

Maybe the NCAA can take away some of Rich Rod's victories! Oh wait. There's only been.....8?
