Michigan self-imposes penalties

---Michigan admits to a series of violations in its football program, but insists the issues related to practice time and the activities of graduate assistants are not enough to warrant major punishment from the NCAA. The school released details of self-imposed sanctions it hopes will satisfy the NCAA, whose staff will hold a hearing on the case in August. The question now is will Michigan's self-imposed punishment be enough to prevent further action by the NCAA?

---Michigan made its case but there's still no word at USC, which filed its case with the NCAA 14 weeks ago. So what's the hold up?

---Former UB coach Turner Gill views himself as a teacher.

---As the conference realignment storm brews, everything is cool with the Big East.

---Here's a good story on some of the perks college basketball coaches receive in their contracts. Michigan State's tom Izzo is reimbursed for monthly dues at a country club of his choosing, while Kansas' bill Self is given membership to two country clubs. If John Calipari had won the 2010 national championship, Kentucky would have owed him $375,000.
