Michigan Football undergoes sign-stealing investigation

Michigan Football has been presented with evidence suggesting that former staff member Connor Stalions was caught stealing signs from opponents. Stalions attended games of future league opponents and has been caught on footage filming the sidelines, breaking scouting rules. All that is known is that Stalions was a part of Michigan staff while breaking scouting rules, but no one knows how big the operation is and who else is involved.

The Big Ten has yet to decide on a punishment, but the question is who deserves to be punished, Coach Jim Harbaugh or the Wolverines as a whole. Big Ten Commissioner Tony Petitti made his way to Ann Arbor last week under immense pressure to take action. He first suggested that Michigan self-impose a suspension, which they ultimately declined. 

As time goes on, more information rises to the surface about the operation and its mechanics. So far, nothing has suggested that Harbaugh or any other staff member can be linked to the sign-stealing operation. However, as Head Coach, Harbaugh could potentially have to face the punishment. 

Players have come out saying they themselves have been approached by staff of other Big Ten schools asking to decipher Michigan’s signs. This paints a poor picture of Michigan’s opponents, who claim to be upset with the potential sign-stealing operation led by Michigan.

Monday, Nov. 6, the Big Ten told Michigan that they would wait for a response before announcing the punishment.
