The Detroit News is reporting that we will have three years of probation when the report comes out this afternoon. Does this season count as the first year of probation?
alternate headline: man does job
UM self-imposed two years of probation and those penalties were enforced immediately, so this should be the start of the first year. But probation is rather meaningless anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I would agree unless you have a rat gnawing away at the walls of Schembechler Hall trying to find some misclassified practice hours...
On probation, everything gets looked at in detail anyway. If anything is misclassified, the NCAA is going to figure it out.

from the report on violations:
2. Three years of probation from November 4, 2010, (the date of the release of this
report) through November 2, 2013. (The institution proposed a two-year period
This year counts as year one of probation. Additionally, the reduction in practice time began this year as well. So we only have one more year of that.
As for probation there are two main things to remember. 1) It requires additional compliance documentation to be supplied to the NCAA. 2) Don't screw up again in any sport. Michigan needs to be beyond reproach in all NCAA sanctioned sports for the next 2 1/2 years.
This was one area where the NCAA could have given Michigan additional penalties as we were techincally on probation from the whole Ed Martin scandal when these infractions occured.
but UM was within the 5 year repeat offender window, that was the kicker
