Great story on signal-stealing

Posted by Bob Condotta

I stumbled across this story today from the Detroit Free-Press on how a couple of Michigan's ball boys figured out that Northwestern was stealing the signs of the Wolverines in 1997 and just had to pass it along.

It's an interesting look at the inner-workings of college football, and the kind you won't get from people who are still in the game. I especially liked the anecdote about the third-and-25 call, which I presume was roundly booed by Michigan fans but which obviously had a great purpose.

I don't care to read a Times expose' about WSU, but I know some of asked for it, and just might get your wish. Here's a link that talks about the story (about 5 items down). Also included in this link is a link to the letter WSU AD Sterk sent out about the story. Thanks to dgdawg at the fix.
