Now we have a lot of details on Michigan football’s alleged illegal sign stealing, which caught the eye of the NCAA. Now the NCAA, despite having not actually offered an official notice of allegations, is in town to see for itself.
According to ESPN’s Pete Thamel, the NCAA is perusing the machinery of the Wolverines football program to learn more about the alleged operation.
A source confirmed to ESPN that the NCAA has begun to search the electronics of Michigan football staff members, which was first reported by The Detroit News. ESPN reported last week that the NCAA had immediate interest in Stalions’ computer, and it appears the scope of the NCAA’s interest has expanded.
While ESPN reports that the NCAA is in town, according to the Detroit News’ Angelique Chengelis, it has not met with any Michigan football coaches or staff at this juncture.
Multiple sources have told me the NCAA has not yet interviewed any of Michigan’s football staff — the coaches attended practice Wednesday and are on the road recruiting (Michigan does not have a game on Saturday)

That does not mean that the NCAA hasn’t met with any athletic department entities, but assuredly, those meetings with those inside of Schembechler Hall and Weidenbach Hall will happen sooner than later.
