Re. Michigan's Self Imposed Sanctions

I don't have really much to add beyond the amazing coverage over at Maize n Brew of University of Michigan's recent self imposed sanctions of two years probation in response to the NCAA's recent investigation of the football team.

There was a particular post that really caught my attention though and is worth sharing with everyone here on BN. While writing about Michigan's "measured" and "appropriate response" (a conclusion I totally agree with) SCM brought attention to a particular paragraph in the Wolverines' detailed and through report:

After more than 130 years, the University's football program is before the Committee on Infractions for the first time. The University admits the violations in fact occurred. The University is disappointed that its history of no major infractions cases in its football program has ended.

He then added the following:

There will be icicles in Hades before USC can ever manage to type a sequence of letters and words that approximates those lines.  To even have the school and program mentioned in the same breath with another program that has so blatantly and recklessly violated NCAA rules repeatedly and on such a large magnitude has been infuriating and insulting over the past several months.  It's embarrassing, regardless of just how minor we feel all of this has been. 

Really not much else needs to be added except our hat tip goes out to Wolverines for holding their program and student athletes accountable, and behaving in a manner living up to the standards of one of the most revered and respected universities in the country. Go Blue.

GO BRUINS.
