Michigan Coach Responds to Punching Allegation by Notre Dame
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez says he didn't see linebacker Jonas Mouton throw a punch at Notre Dame lineman Eric Olsen.

Rodriguez faced questions Wednesday as video of the incident during Saturday's 38-34 Wolverines victory spread on the Internet. Mouton appears to swing at Olsen's chin after getting up from the turf after Olsen fell on him.

Rodriguez says an official would have called any infraction and says Mouton won't face discipline.

Weis said Sunday he was sending videotape of several plays to the Big Ten offices seeking answers to why certain calls weren't made, including "punches to the face after plays were over."

He says he got a response from the Big Ten but says it's a private matter.
