On Thursday, October 19, independent reporters first revealed that the University of Michigan has been scrutinized by the NCAA. The football program was alleged to have committed sign-stealing violations, thus triggering a sudden investigation from the Association.
The Big Ten Conference confirmed this investigation but has so far refrained from commenting on the substance of the issue. A sign-stealing scandal poses a problem to the Wolverines, currently ranked #2 in the country. Industry experts also say that the implications for Michigan sports betting are immense.
