The Nebraska Cornhuskers have had a heck of a time getting over the hump against the Michigan Wolverines. But at least Matt Rhuse and company can rest easy knowing they're not getting charged with NCAA violations every other month.

Jim Harbaugh and his football team are not as lucky. Earlier this week, the NCAA once again levied accusations of improprieties.

According to NBC Sports, Michigan got words this week that the NCAA is once again looking at them for recruiting violations as well as impermissible coaching. In particular, the organization is taking a look at whether or not a member of Michigan’s off-field football staff violated rules by doing on-the-field coaching during practice.

This comes after Harbaugh missed several weeks to open the season as a way to try and get around NCAA punishment for other recruiting violations. And then of course, a suspension following the allegations that Michigan was cheating by scouting opponents. It's been an interesting season to say the least.

The question now is whether or not the Nebraska Cornhuskers are going to see Jim Harbaugh again or whether he might decide it's time to return to the NFL this offseason.
