Lou Holtz slams Michigan football sign-stealing scandal: ‘I find it deplorable’

The NCAA’s inquiry into an alleged sign-stealing scheme by Michigan’s football program, has captured the attention of the college football world.

According to a Yahoo Sports report, Michigan is being accused of sending people to games of teams they are scheduled to play to gather information on signs used to call plays on offense and defense. Michigan football staffer Connor Stalions, who is believed to be at the center of the investigation, was suspended with pay late last month.

The NCAA prohibits in-person advanced scouting of opponents. “Off-campus, in-person scouting of future opponents (in the same season) is prohibited,” NCAA Bylaw 11.6.1 states.

Former longtime college football coach Lou Holtz recently appeared on OutKick’s “Hot Mic with Hutton & Withrow” show to weigh in on the ongoing scandal, calling the investigation “deplorable.”

Michigan was on a bye week this past weekend, but returns to action this Saturday for a matchup with Purdue.
