ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez says his
football program has abided by the rules, despite allegations of
NCAA violations.
At a news conference in Ann Arbor, Rodriguez became emotional
and had to gather himself as he denied any wrongdoing.
Rodriguez said his staff knows the rules "and we comply by the
rules."
The school has launched an investigation into allegations that
its football program regularly violates NCAA rules limiting how
much time players can spend on training and practice.
The announcement came after a Detroit Free Press article in
which players from the 2008 and 2009 teams said the amount of time
they spend on football during the season and in the offseason
greatly exceeds NCAA limits. The players spoke to the newspaper on
condition of anonymity because they feared repercussions from
coaches.
