Michigan fans are hoping Juwan Howard can combine the shady bagman recruiting of the Steve Fisher era that produced investigations into the university by the FBI, IRS and NCAA with the championship player development and coaching from the John Beilein era.

Today those two eras merged, with Howard landing a coveted legacy whose brother enjoyed success playing for his predecessor.

That GIF celebrating the minting of the newest Michigan Wolverine is of former US diplomat Paul Bremer announcing the capture of Saddam Hussein, which is just a little too on the nose.

The elder Wagner was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018 and is now with the Washington Wizards. Ohio State will face Michigan twice during B1G play this season.
