U-M Hopes Martin Investigation Over

Michigan has brought its Ed Martin investigation to a close. The self-imposed penalties include a financial penalty, as expected, and game forfeitures, also expected.

From the Michigan website:

Sanctions (self-imposed) include: (1) Forfeiting all games won while four players were ineligible. (2) Repaying to the NCAA about $450,000 the University received for postseason play with those ineligible players. (3) Declaring the men's basketball team ineligible to participate in the 2003 NCAA and NIT tournaments. (4) Placing the men's basketball program on probation for two years.

The penalties will be submitted to the NCAA for (hopefully) its approval.
