By staff

Posted by's Adam Rittenberg

Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez often became emotional Monday as he defended his program against allegations of NCAA rule violations on time limits for practices and offseason workouts.

In a 15-minute statement to begin his weekly news conference, Rodriguez reaffirmed that he and his staff follow NCAA guidelines and care about the players in their program.

Some of the key quotes: Michigan offensive lineman David Moosman told reporters that most or all of the team will be meeting with the school's compliance staffers as part of a full-scale investigation into the allegations.
