Agree the NCAA wants this to go away. If Michigan helped USCjr cheat UT and Clemson out of CFP spots then that affected millions of people’s Vegas dollars and money going to ACC and SEC for CFP spots.Just as I said from the very beginning, the Big 10 action "against" Michigan was in actuality for Michigan all along: 0:21. A big dog-and-pony-show to provide CFP, NCAA, and the Big 10 cover for Michigan going to the playoffs with no action taken.
Meanwhile, please notice (that I have also said from the beginning): (1) Michigan's corruption of last year's playoffs and also (2) the January computer scandal in the Michigan football office (that was apparently big enough to get the FBI involved) have both been completely covered up and all public memory of them suppressed, to the best of the media's ability. The "reporter" didn't even mention these things, as usual.
Harbaugh goes to the NFL, so he gets no ramifications, and immediately thereupon the media launches the "it's not fair to punish the people at Michigan for what someone else did" campaign. "Most of these student athletes weren't even starters last year." Meanwhile, we have a entire recruiting class missing and won't be allowed to sign a compete signing class until 2028.
It's all about who cheats-with-impunity.
