ANN ARBOR, Michigan, September 8. WITH the collegiate season just around the corner, Michigan's head coach Mike Bottom has suspended all of the men's team other than the freshman for a week after an unrevealed violation of team rules.
“What is clear at this point is that the upperclassmen on the men's swimming and diving team acted in a manner that was inconsistent with our rules, policies and expectations for a student-athlete at Michigan,” Dave Brandon, the Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics, said in a statement. “We have suspended them from all team activities for a period of one week's time.”
Michigan also noted that it would have no further comment on the situation, and that additional punishment would be handled by the team.
