If I remember correctly they never found a link to Ed Martin's money with Howard even though they did with the remaining Fab Five. I never bought it.I say this both sarcastically and unsarcastically: Juwan Howard knows what he's talking about in terms of player compensation.
We are in a competitive landscape in terms of, let's not mince words, paying players to induce them to come to Illinois.
Michigan will do fine in that regard. But there's boring administrative stuff that needs to happen to get it right, and if they're behind the 8 ball momentarily, time for us to pounce.
