Did you see the postgame fight on Sunday after Michigan’s head coach Juwan Howard took a swing at Wisconsin assistant Joe Krabbenhoft in the postgame handshake line. Juwan admitted that he was mad that Wisconsin called two timeouts in the last minute of the game, despite the fact that they were up by 15. Wisconsin won the game 77-63. He said, "I didn't like the timeout they called, and I'm being totally honest with you. I thought it was not necessary at that moment, especially with it being a large lead. I thought that wasn't fair to our guys. And so that's what happened."
The Big Ten Conference has now handed down its disciplinary actions: Juwan Howard has been suspended five games -- the remainder of the regular season -- and fined $40,000. Wisconsin coach Greg Gard was fined $10,000 for violating the conference's sportsmanship policy but not suspended, while Krabbenhoft is not expected to receive punishment. Michigan forwards Terrance Williams and Moussa Diabate and Wisconsin guard Jahcobi Neath were each suspended one game.
Uncle Steve said, "Let me say this, the problem I have with this, when I look at the tapes, the initiator of this whole thing was the coach at Wisconsin. This person put his hands on Juwan, and now Juwan is paying for the whole thing. I was a little disappointed in a couple of sportscasters on the way they jumped on Juwan."
