This Michigan cheating scandal seems to be getting worse by the day for the Wolverines. It has been reported by ESPN’s Pete Thamel and Mark Schlabaugh that Michigan staffer Connor Stalions purchased tickets to over 30 games in the past three seasons at 11 Big Ten schools.
This also included two tickets to this past weekend’s matchup between Ohio State and Penn State with one ticket located directly behind each team’s bench. After news broke of the investigation late last week, it was noted the tickets went unused for Saturday’s game. Tickets to all games were confirmed to be purchased in Stalion’s own name making the paper trail easy to follow.
News broke that trouble could be brewing in Ann Arbor last week with accusations of sign stealing. At the time, all we knew was that the NCAA and Big Ten Conference thought their information was reliable enough to notify all the teams that Michigan is yet to play this season.
Now more details are coming out and possible video surveillance footage of Stalions recording the sidelines at an opposing Big Ten stadium of an upcoming UM opponent.
Michigan staffer Connor Stalions couldn’t choose which side of the stadium he wanted to sit on for OSU-Penn St.
So he just bought tickets on both sides

Add the fact Michigan was already under investigation for recruiting violations during the COVID-19 dead period … well, things aren’t looking too rosy for Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines.
With Michigan ranked No. 2 in the nation, it remains to be seen how swiftly the NCAA will act. However, if the evidence is as overwhelming as reports are insinuating, could the Wolverines be kept out of this year’s College Football Playoff?
Time will tell as more comes to light.
