The suspension came in late during the Friday afternoon, with Harbaugh on the plane. Within moments, Michigan’s management decided to go for a temporary order. However, the suspension stands tall for now. Judge Tim Connors denied Michigan’s request. Moments later, the team released a statement saying- “We look forward to presenting our case next week where we intend to demonstrate that the Big Ten has not acted legally or fairly,”. This is turning out to be more than just sign-stealing accusations, with the legal bodies involved. Things might turn messy as the authorities vest the power to make future decisions.
