I hope this doesn't devolve into attacks on me for bringing it up, but I have a friend who is an alum of Florida State. We have a pact to stick together in the midst of our Sparty friends. He believes that every big time program's boosters pay players, including Michigan. I believe that Michigan does not pay players, but that the practice is common in big time football, specifically the south and Tressel era Ohio State (among others). Is there any evidence linking Michigan's boosters to paying players? Is there evidence that proves they don't? I know on the surface Michigan has a tradition of doing things the "right" way, but I've always wanted documented evidence to support this, especially in light of the SEC/ACC/NCAA's war against Harbaugh. I'd appreciate any links anyone has because I hate the "everyone does it" argument.
