Generally the rules are pretty clear(not sure about the Big10) ... play an ineligible player and you forfeit the game.

"This isn't on Lloyd -- it's on us."

Wagons circled? Check.

Forfeits are no fun and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. My high school's team had to do that while I was there.

Usually that happens after the season. The NCAA or the conference finds out they used an ineligible player and they forfeit the game way after the bowl games have been played. But it looks like a decision will be handed down within a month.

Wow! I know a few Michigan fans who were really worried over this. They were convinced, because it was a rules violation - not that the player didn't have any affect on game(s). That doesn't matter - that they not only would have to forfeit the game, but would also lose a bowl game and maybe a scholarship.

You were hoping to get that loss changed into a W in your predictions for that week, weren't you? ;)

I need all the help I can get!

But what I don't understand is if it was a NCAA rules violation, why no disciplinary action was taken? I realize that Michigan reported it, and that was wise on their part.

But there is no explanation from the NCAA as to whys behind their decision. I realize it wasn't a great infraction; but it's still an infraction.

Maybe they feel Michigan is suffering enough this season. :lol:
