Yep.

Sounds very familiar to me. I wonder if the NCAA will sweep this one under the rug as well, as Michigan is one of its bigger-name schools.

NCAA has the history of being very strict and disciplined. For major violations, they ban schools from bowl games

I wish the NFL was the same way and the Patriots were banned from post-season play

As a Penn State fan I dont think Penn State should get credit for the win if it is forfeited. Michigan beat us. It would be a very tainted win.

Who cares? Michigan's win is already tainted

No team in the Big 10 is going undefeated so this would give us a shot at winning the Big 10 title

actually the player was eligible under the NCAA guidelines. he was a transfer student from another conference and evidently their eligibility requirements were not the same as the Big 10.

Big Ten weighing Michigan punishment

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The Big Ten may take up to three weeks to decide whether to discipline Michigan's football program for using an ineligible player.

Athletic director Bill Martin said he didn't know whether penalties, if any, might include forfeiture of the Wolverines' 14-9 victory over then-No.10 Penn State on Sept. 22. It was one of three games in which freshman safety Artis Chambers played this season.
Martin said Saturday that the university immediately contacted the Big Ten after learning that Chambers was ineligible under the conference's freshman rules. Chambers, who enrolled at Michigan in January, cannot play the remainder of the season and did not travel with the team for Saturday's game at Northwestern. The Fort Wayne, Ind., native can still practice with the Wolverines.

Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman declined Monday to elaborate on the process a compliance subcommittee would use in determining possible sanctions against Michigan.


Martin and athletic department spokesman Bruce Madej said Monday that they could not talk about Chambers' case because of privacy laws. Coach Lloyd Carr refused to discuss the situation at his weekly news conference Monday.

Martin acknowledged Saturday that the university had misinterpreted Big Ten freshman eligibility rules.

"Obviously, I take full responsibility for that," he said. "This isn't on Lloyd - it's on us."

Martin said he hoped the matter would be resolved sometime this week.

How about a review of the refs and all the shady calls at the big house while they're at it. I made up my mind after that game that I'm not even going to bother watching anymore if the games are going to be decided ahead of time. College football has about the same credibility as pro wrestling IMO. Only difference is Michigan pays its players better.

I care. I dont want to win the Big 10 (since we dont have a chance with Morelli) or go to a major bowl because the Big 10 handed us a win. Michigan won...end of story. We didnt deserve the win. They did.

I'm a Bucks fan, so no love lost on the Wolverines, but this doesn't sound like cheating at all. It was a freshman, and this really does sound like a minor misunderstanding.
