Will fallout follow Michigan violations?

At the College Football Roundtable each week, we ask each member of the coverage staff for his opinion about a topic in the sport.

Today’s question: Michigan was said to have committed “major” NCAA violations under coach Rich Rodriguez. What do you think the ultimate fallout of the violations will be in regard to Rodriguez?

Rich Rodriguez was found to have violated the NCAA’s practice time rules.

I think that depends on how Michigan plays next season. Already, Michigan A.D. David Brandon has said he’s unclear on the difference between “major” and “minor” violations. So, if Michigan bounces back with a

solid season, shows progress and reaches a bowl game, there will be little fallout. But if the Wolverines struggle for a third consecutive seasons, those NCAA issues will resurface as additional reasons to make a

coaching change in Ann Arbor.
