MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -- Central Michigan's football team is among the programs penalized by the NCAA for failing to meet academic progress standards.
The Chippewas lost two scholarships for the 2007 season. The school could have a full allotment of 85 scholarships for next season.
The NCAA penalized 218 teams in a variety of sports nationwide in an annual academic progress report released Tuesday. The only Michigan program penalized was the Chippewa football team.
Central Michigan has won two straight Mid-American Conference championships but has had a lot of coaching turnover in the four years covered by the report. That led to high transfer rates for players, which hurt the program's rating because retention of student-athletes is a factor.
