Time to let the story die

Submitted by tdeshetler on September 1st, 2009 at 9:34 AM

Am I the only one tired of dealing with the crap spewed out of Detroit? It's time to ignore the freep writers who are obviously on a witch hunt. They wrote and published the story in order to inflict maximum damage to the program and the amount of energy we are all (including myself) putting into message boards, diaries, etc. are helping the cause.
Michigan, in my opinion will be fine. The NCAA will investigate. The university will produce the required paper trail to validate the programs adherence to the “written” rules.
The NCAA will be forced to review their policies and attempt to revamp them to eliminate any grey area's or loopholes that may exist.

don't think the NCAA will investigate because i don't think it will get to that level. after michigan does it's investigation it will report whatever findings to the big ten. i imagine it would end there

... and get back to football.

All the mental bandwidth expended on this will suck the life force out of you if you let it. All that does is give the Freep and Rosenberg exactly what they want. The obvious reactions, like cancelling a subscription, is really pointless (I think they actually lose $$$ on each sub!?!).

(I even pondered--briefly--putting up a website that would allow current or former Freep employees to comment anonymously about improper practices or poor ethics at the Free Press. Time-consuming, yes, but you have to admire the turnabout-is-fair-play angle!).

I keep coming back to one thing: Michigan takes the field at the Big House in a little over 4 days. Let's let the team do the talking...

So I guess I'm saying as far as the Freep is concerned, I'm "All Done."

As far as Michigan Football is concerned, I'm "All In."

Go Blue!

no mention of it at all as of today, maybe people are realizing it is just a handful of former players complaining about having to train hard. ESPN's Joe Schad (sp?) said he spoke to 2 former players and 1 current player who complained that the workouts were "excessive." So it boils down to jilted former players and 1 current player who doesn't like the training.

Big Non-Story. It will only continue to live on in blogs and message boards.
