Michigan football legend Aidan Hutchinson has spoken about the NCAA allegations against the Wolverines.
It seems like everyone is talking about the NCAA investigation into potential sign-stealing for Michigan football.
Whether it’s Deion Sanders, Colin Cowherd, or other big-name sports personalities, it seems like everyone has an opinion on Michigan football’s alleged sign-stealing.
What’s funny is that players, current coaches, and former coaches have all said it’s not a big deal (because it’s legal, in-person scouting isn’t).
The only people saying Michigan football “cheated” or needs the “death penalty” are rival fans and others who have lost their minds on social media. However, one dude who has some level-headed thoughts and that’s Michigan football legend Aidan Hutchinson.
"“They’re doing all their investigations and they’re coming at Michigan when Michigan’s got a shot to win the national championship this year,” Hutchinson said via On3, according to Michigan Live’s Kory Woods. “So I don’t know. It is what it is. I guess time will pass and people will forget about it and move on once we’re the (Big Ten) champs again.”"
Hutchinson scoffed at the idea that Michigan football was the only program that stole signs. He confirmed that other teams actually stole Michigan’s. Yet, you have never heard the Wolverines crying about it like Ohio State — instead — they did something about it. They got better.
"“People are always stealing signs in college football,” Hutchinson said. “People stole our signs. Other Big Ten schools stole our signs. It’s just a thing when you’re in college football, so I mean, not any more than anybody else did as far as I’m concerned.”"
This whole thing has been a coordinated PR campaign. The Washington Post article was a hack job from a dude who doesn’t even cover college football but did go to Boston College at the same time as Ryan Day.
There’s no shortage of wild rumors like the one claiming Michigan football helped South Carolina beat Clemson and Tennessee. However, after the NCAA visit on Thursday, there are good vibes and no evidence to support that the coaching knew what was going on or involved.
