"U-M ALLEGATIONS: Rich Rod under scrutiny
In August, a Free Press investigation quoted current and former University of Michigan football players as saying coach Rich Rodriguez worked them beyond NCAA limits. An internal investigation launched, and the NCAA joined in, even announcing a few weeks later that they'd found enough smoke to keep looking for fire.
The response to the Free Press investigation was loud and hurtful from Rich Rod supporters -- but the invective died down dramatically as the Wolverines' losses mounted on the field."
Give me a break. Trying to give this non-story, piece of crap 'journalism' this kind of spotlight is ridiculous.
Loud and hurtful indeed.
