Eligibility Issue for the Wolverines

The Michigan Daily is reporting today that freshman safety Artis Chambers is ineligible for the rest of the season. Chambers enrolled at the University early last January, but apparently he is only eligible under NCAA guidelines, not Big 10 Conference rules. This means that the three non-conference games that Chambers played in were legal, but not the Big 10 game against Penn State. The Big 10 could make the Wolverines forfeit that win over Penn State.

As soon as the Wolverines found out that Chambers was ineligible, he was immediately removed from their roster. Chambers will still practice with the team, but will not be able to play until next season. The Big 10 is expected to pass down their ruling sometime this week.
