NCAAFB – Michigan set to take Big Ten to court if punished without full investigation
Michigan is preparing to take possible legal action if the Big Ten punishes the football program before a full investigation of allegations of an impermissible scouting and sign-stealing scheme orchestrated by a low-level staffer. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press about Michigan’s plans but did not provide details. Michigan has been given notification of potential disciplinary action from the conference. The Big Ten gave the school until this week to respond.

MLB – Chicago White Sox hire Marcus Thames as their hitting coach
The Chicago White Sox hired Marcus Thames as their hitting coach Tuesday, luring him from a similar job with the Los Angeles Angels. Thames joins manager Pedro Grifol’s staff after spending last season in that role with Los Angeles. The Angels finished third in the AL with 231 homers. They were fifth in the league slugging percentage, seventh in both OPS and walks and tied for seventh in extra-base hits. The 47-year-old Thames worked as the Miami Marlins’ hitting coach in 2022 and served in the same capacity for the Yankees from 2018-21. He also served as the New York’s assistant hitting coach from 2016-17.

MLB – Milwaukee grapples with the reality of Craig Counsell managing the Cubs
The first sign of discontent regarding Craig Counsell’s decision to leave the Milwaukee Brewers to manage the Chicago Cubs appeared in his hometown at the Little League field that bears his name. The word “ass” was spray-painted across Counsell’s name on the sign outside the ballpark at a Milwaukee suburb where Counsell grew up and still lives. The Brewers now must try to keep winning in Major League Baseball’s smallest market without the manager who led them to their greatest run of sustained success.
