...although I don't think it was meant to be that way. The Detroit Free Press published an article over the weekend detailing what could be pretty serious charges being made against Michigan's football program. A number of current and former players claim that UM and its coach, Rich Rodriguez, are violating NCAA rules regarding the time spent by student-athletes in team activities.

The hilarity isn't the article itself--like I said, these are pretty serious charges, if substantiated. The hilarity is in the reader comments that follow. Michigan is infallible! Shoot the messenger! Those players are just wimps--get them out of here! Besides, everybody does it!

No, not everybody does it. There are plenty of respectable programs that follow the rules and still win. Oh, and it sure did Michigan a lot of good--what were they, 3-9 last season? Cheat and lose--serves 'em right.
