michigan 8 16 Michigan meets with NCAA investigators, awaits ruling

SEATTLE — Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez says he’s glad facing the NCAA committee on infractions is over.

Rodriguez made a very brief comment as he walked toward an escalator Saturday afternoon after a 7½-hour hearing on violations within the Michigan football program. Rodriguez, school president Mary Sue Coleman and athletic director David Brandon were among the Wolverines contingent in Seattle on Saturday.

The NCAA has accused Michigan of five major rules violations related to practices and workouts. School officials challenge the allegation that Rodriguez failed to promote an atmosphere of compliance, but accept responsibility for the other four allegations.

The allegations involve exceeding limits in practice and training time.
