Michigan faced Monday deadline to respond to NCAA

ANN ARBOR, MI – The University of Michigan had to respond by Monday to the NCAA after it alleged the Rich Rodriguez-led football program committed as many as five major violations.

Athletic director David Brandon said last week there would be "total transparency" when the school releases its report on Tuesday. The report likely will include self-imposed sanctions, which could include a loss of scholarships and a cutback in practice time.

Michigan will hope its corrective actions will be accepted by the NCAA, whose infractions committee scheduled an August hearing for the school in Seattle.

The NCAA outlined five potentially major rules violations, related to practices and workouts, in a notice of allegations it sent to the school three months ago.
