    Not to be cynical

    but how is this, if it's paid for by Michigan, not just an all expenses paid trip to Cali for some Michigan players?

    That seems like an illegal recruiting tactic.

    From a sidenote on the linked article:

    Michigan statement
    Michigan football officials told ESPN.com that Big Ten Conference compliance officials cleared their football team's recent senior trip to California because it involved leadership and life skills, which is permissible under NCAA rules.
    The Wolverines paid for the trip through a special fund in the athletics department's operating budget.
    "The Senior Leadership Trip was developed to teach our senior football student-athletes about leadership, career development and life skills, and the opportunity was made possible through a special athletics department fund designed to provide opportunities such as this life skills training to student-athletes," Dave Ablauf, Michigan's associate athletic director of media relations said in a statement emailed to ESPN.com. "Our compliance office reviewed the details of the trip with the Big Ten Conference, who concurred with our assessment that it was permissible by NCAA rules."
    It is hard to understand how this could be permissible while it was not permissible for Eric Crouch to accept a ham sandwich.

    That ham sandwich didn't teach him anything about leadership and/or life!
