Would it be possible to do a power ranking of the Michigan players/coaches who have said "we beat ourselves" over the years in reference to their annual Buckeye clownstomping? That would be a pretty lengthy list but I think you could trim it down to 10 or so.
Between 8 and 14? You mean in the Big Ten, right?
This team is peaking at the right time, folks. Would not be surprised to see a Sweet 16 run.
Good lord, our conference is a bloodbath.
They'll be lucky to finish 5th this year.
I say yes, considering how inexperienced a lot of our guys are. Wint and Riep weren't starters but did have more game experience than most of our returning players. That underscores the importance of this decision by Ryan Day, as he wasn't dismissing a walk-on long snapper that never saw the field just to satisfy the angry masses. This would have been the same decision regardless of WHO it was and I'm glad Day handled it this way.
You are spot on here.
I get the whole "innocent until proven guilty", but this was the correct move. Even if, by some chance, the allegations aren't entirely accurate, it's fairly clear that these two players were, at the very least, not representing the team and university in the way that's expected. Kudos to Coach Day for properly handling what was clearly a horrific situation.
