TODAY IN chUMp HISTORY: MARCH 16, 1994
Plenty of flack getting fired at Spartan Nation over the recent arrest of a former basketball player. Definitely not good news, not what we want to see. But he is a FORMER basketball player, and it's hard to maintain accountability standards for those who have moved on from the university.
What if a CURRENT EMPLOYEE was arrested for inappropriate behavior? Like Jim Minick, for example. He was busted for aggravated drunk driving last spring, and his reward was a free month of paid vacation. His case was swept under the rug so quickly, you probably don't even remember it happened. But it did.
It's nothing new for a CURRENT EMPLOYEE of the University of Michigan to get arrested. And we don't mean Jim Harbaugh, who is a current employee, and who was arrested, because those things were not concurrent.
We're talking today about Red Berensen, the "legendary" coach of the Michigan Hockey team. It was 22 years ago today that Red was popped for public pissing on the wall of a local library. Of course, he was drunk and disorderly and he was driving drunk as well, so old Red was in a heap of trouble for a few days. He eventually pled guilty to a lesser charge.
Berensen received no extra punishment from the university, as his crimes and misdemeanors were also swept under the rug. He has been propped-up and heralded ever since, only because he knows how to recruit players and win games. Berensen is so good that the old league (CCHA) named the championship trophy after Ron Mason, the Michigan State coach. (tongue in cheek)
So while chUMps everywhere fan the flames against a FORMER player from MSU, remember that UM still employs at least three coaches with arrest records, two of which were incurred while CURRENT EMPLOYEES of the school.
Tweet ****** The purpose of this web site is to expose the mainstream media bias that consistently portrays Michigan in a favorable light under any and all circumstances. We present current facts and review historical records to show that UM is not all they are cracked up to be. This process involves information that is negative by nature, offered as a counter-balance to the biased picture we all see on a regular basis in the mainstream media. These negative facts may involve Wolverine teams, players, coaches, administrators, and/or fans. We are here to prove that Michigan is NOT AS DIFFERENT as they want us all to believe.
