On March 13, 1997, the University of Michigan announced it would reopen their investigation into allegations that booster Ed Martin gave cash and other improper benefits to the school's men basketball players in response to a Detroit Free Press report that such rule-breaking violations had occurred.
Martin allegedly "slipped money to players after games and had supplied cash hidden in envelopes, occasionally in cake boxes and at times through girlfriends or close acquaintances," according to the Free Press.
 
The disclosure would ultimately tarnish the history of the Fab Five era.
