Dude: that DB discounted the Freep story doesn't mean he discounted the violations. Michigan plead guilty. As in: "We committed major violations." They weren't hideous recruiting or corruption violations. But they were violations. I'm glad you disregard them. But neither the school nor the NCAA did.
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
