Chris Webber deserves apology from Michigan, NCAA for disassociation treatment

 
[quote]
On Wednesday, with the conclusion of the NCAA's astoundingly clueless but purposefully humiliating 10-year "disassociation" penalty, the [link=http://yhoo.it/YtWLkH]University of Michigan is inviting former basketball star Chris Webber to give them a call[/link] and discuss if he wants to be a part of the family again. He may have to apologize first, though.
 
What Michigan should be doing is calling Webber and saying sorry to him.

No, I don't think so.

  • I saw Webber tweeted "ok" at exactly midnight when the 10 year ban was up........I'd like to see a reconnection, even if most others don't.  If a guy like Maurice Clarrett can be worshiped after what he did, I'm sure Chris Webber can be forgiven.
     
     
    Time to get over it.

    I second this!!
     
    GO BLUE!
  • My thoughts on the subject have been well documented in this forum. Won't bore anyone again. I will say it is old news. Our basketball program is in good shape and has now moved on. Focus on the future and put the past in the past. Webber has nothing to do with where this program is heading, nor should he.
  • Most people have the ability to celebrate the past, present, and future all at the same time. 
  • Sure, let's celebrate fifteen years of probation, embarrassment, fraud, lying, federal inquires, MSU dominance and puppies. I just through that last one in so I wasn't totally negative.
  • 15 years of probation?  What are you smoking?  Try 3 years of probation and a one year post season ban.......again, osu is going through the same thing and they carried the head coach who allowed it off the field and honored him at halftime of a game..........WHILE STILL ON PROBATION.  We're 20 years past Webber taking some cash......
     
     
     
  • The university is more to blame for the basketball program slipping into oblivion than Ed Martin. After everything came out UM basically threw up the white flag and didn't care at all about the on the court product. All they wanted was nothing off the court whatsoever. The NCAA was actually pretty light on us (surprised?) but the university was the one who basically shut the program down. 
  • Phil C, please educate this guys.
  • Don't need educated like I don't need to live my life with bitter vitriol towards a guy who made a mistake 20 years ago.
     
     
    If Chris Webber saying "go blue" or wearing a Michigan tee shirt around really makes you that mad, maybe you should reassess your priorities in life.  Who cares.
  • Ok, you're right. Now shut up and move on.

    Ugh, if it was only one mistake and not a consistent pattern of lying and deception that resulted in federal charges and put the program in a huge whole for years.
     
    Yes, the University bears responsibility for what happened but so does Webber and his family who LIED through their teeth for years.
     
    I'm willing to move on but I won't sugar coat what he did.

    Yes, because we should ALWAYS use Ohio and Tressell as our guide. [8|]
  • The thread headline reads, "Webber deserves an apology from Michigan..."  So my question is simple: who believes that Michigan owes Webber an apology?  Frankly, that could be the biggest laugh out loud of the century, but let me try.  Yes Chris, we're very sorry you lied, stole, cheated, got caught and still deny it, and buried this program for 15 years.  Would you PLEASE accept our profound apologies?  Clearly we still owe you for "all" you did for us so I just hope you'll forgive us.  Whadya say?  Please?  It was obviously our fault but it's only because we simply forgot that accountability for one's own actions is a ridiculous notion in this day and age and we should always blame somebody else for the things we do, so again please accept this apology.  It won't happen again.
