Much Ado About Nothing

Like many Michigan fans, you may have been scared witless by the allegations published by the Detroit Free Press (freep) earlier this week.

You can relax now.

The published report appears to be the product of Micheal Rosenberg's (the Freep sports writer) continuing odd personal vendetta against Rich Rodriguez.

The allegation was that Michigan players are being forced to practice too much. The NCAA sets a 20 hour per week maximum for required practice, but in effect this is simply the floor for what is expected from an NCAA Div 1 athlete.

The self-reported average for Div 1 football players is in fact 45 hours per week of practice time.

A handful of former player may have felt that too much was being expected from them, but then again, that's probably why they are former players.

Not only is there no fire, there is not even smoke...

It is very sad that the journalistic integrity of he Free Press has fallen to such a level.

Ultimately this has backfired on Rosenberg. This article as pulled together the Michigan community.

The wagons are circled.

Rich Rodriguez is now a Michigan Man.
