TheWolverine reported that these two investigators are responsible for the information that’s being leaked to the media regarding the ongoing NCAA Investigation.
The most interesting thing people will probably find about this report is that both investigators are alleged to be connected to the family of Ohio State coach Ryan Day.
TheWolverine reported that it knows Michigan currently has these documents, and the documents could link an alleged investigator to Timothy Day, younger brother of Ryan. As for the other investigator, well, Michigan suspects that investigator was one of Timothy’s classmates at New Hampshire and is also linked to Ryan and Tim’s brother, Christopher. The article reported that one of the investigators runs a private firm in Day’s hometown of Manchester, New Hampshire.
Other sources at Michigan told the outlet that some evidence in this case— namely a spreadsheet that has suspended staffer Connor Stalions’ travel plans and budget that was given to the Washington Post— was illegally obtained through breaking into Stalions’ computer.
Stallions’ is an analyst who is at the center of this investigation. Is report to have purchased tickets to a bunch of games, including multiple involving Penn State.
Penn State plays Michigan Nov. 11 at Beaver Stadium with kickoff scheduled for noon on Fox. In the meantime, first-year Big Ten commissioner Tony Petitti is meeting with Michigan president Santa Ono and other Big Ten administrators this afternoon.
Big Ten coaches and athletic directors have reportedly called on Petitti to take action.
