Just my opinion, of course, but in digesting all of this for the last few hours, it seems like the most troubling things are the QC activities and the possibility the NCAA drags in the basketball probation and calls us a repeat offender. As far as why RR was not fired, these are ALLEGATIONS of major violations. Sort of like criminal charges; innocent until proven guilty, yes? Now, when the final report comes down and the penalties are handed out, if it says the University of Michigan football program committed major violations under RR, then it is up to Brandon and MSC to decide if this is a violation of his contract. To fire him now, and then the NCAA lessens the blow to minor violations, RR would have a serious case for damages. Thoughts?
The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
