So we all know how Mary-Sue feels about the Fab Five banners, and we know how Jalen feels, but today Dave Brandon gave his take on the situation. About rehanging the banners:
We're not even sure that we could put those banners up, If you vacated wins and forfeited wins and basically cleared the record books of any activity, it's hard to believe we could put back up the banners. We've never even gauged with the NCAA to see if that were possible. And, truthfully, if we had to forfeit the wins, it doesn't seem appropriate
He also said that no thought is being put into it right now, saying, "It's a moot point now. There's a lot of time that'll pass between now and 2013." But Brandon wasn't opposed to honoring the Fab Five somehow:
Are there (different) banners we could put up, though? Yeah, there are," he says. "I'd love to celebrate the Fab Five. Are there conditions on which that has to happen? For sure. But we've been very open and vocal about that, and there's just nothing new on this subject.
So it seems to me that what the Athletic Department still wants is for Chris to issue some sort of apology before any action is taken. Link: http://www.annarbor.com/sports/um-basketball/michigan-unsure-if-fab-five...
