Internal audit slaps Wolverines

College Football

November 17, 2009

College football's winningest program just took another hit off the field.

The University of Michigan released embarrassing details of an internal audit Monday that discovered Rich Rodriguez's team failed to file forms tracking how much time players spent on football during the 2008 season and the following offseason.

The NCAA and the school are investigating the program about similar issues.

Rodriguez has said he and his coaches know and follow NCAA rules. The Detroit Free Press, citing anonymous football players, reported in August that Michigan was exceeding NCAA limits regarding practices and workouts.

•Two of three Tennessee freshman football players charged last week in an attempted armed robbery have been dismissed from the team. Coach Lane Kiffin said wide receiver Nu'Keese Richardson and defensive back Mike Edwards were permanently dismissed, while former starting safety Janzen Jackson will continue to be barred from team activities while Kiffin awaits more information. ... California tailback Jahvid Best will not play Saturday against Stanford as he recovers from a concussion. ... UNLV has fired football coach Mike Sanford after five losing seasons, a 15-43 record and no bowl appearances.
