is squeaky clean but it's intent, imo. Not saying I'm is the apex of student athlete perfection. You cannot watch all your athletes all the time. Granted. That said, the rr stuff was a joke, the fab 5 was more like the fab 1 and later guys who knew a guy since elementary school and was more taking money from a friend than being paid to go to UM (also, with aau and such cbb is a different beast) and finally the Bo lineage guys get rid of the true f-ups and generally give guys they feel made a youth mistake a second chance if they earn it. Hoke dropped our best WR for being late to a probation meeting. Dropped him as in you had your chance (more before I got here) and, yes, something as small as being late is why you are no longer UM player and we now have no fast deep threat at WR. He knew what getting rid of Stonum meant to the team as far as problems. Most coaches let being late to a probation meeting slide. Not saying UM is perfect but I know for a fact that no coach actively paid for kids, played them while ineligible/selling gear/fearing selling and taking drugs, etc. There is "can't watch them all the time" and there is "here is a few thousand reasons to come to our school". Yes, JT also did this based on a WSJ article of his first class where the bigtime OL Morris claims an osu coach handed him a paper bag full of cash. He didn't qualify and landed at NC St. There is a difference in intent, this is bs and we truly had zero idea.
The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
