Michigan Hires Outside Firm to Assist in Investigation

The WolverineCorrespondent ISeptember 2, 2009

Bill Martin declared on Monday that the University of Michigan will hire an independent firmto assist in the internal investigation. No it's not a team of investigative journalists from the Detroit Free Press. Nor is it a group of disgruntled ex-players. It's...actually...an INDEPENDENT group!

"We've reached out to the Big Ten and the NCAA about this investigation, but it still helps to bring in an outside firm to provide more of an objective view when we make our final report," said Bruce Madej, associate athletic director for media relations. "We have engaged an outside counsel to come in as a partner to discover and assess the facts."

If the group comes back and reports that no violations have taken place, I wonder then what will become of the Freep's "five minutes of ESPN fame" journalists? Maybe they'll have to go back to the ex-players for more juicy allegations? Or heck, better yet, just ask a few other freshmen if they work hard!
