Watch as Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback C.J. Stroud discusses the Michigan Wolverines’ scandal involving sign-stealing.

 

C.J. Stroud, a former standout player for the Ohio State Buckeyes, has now offered his opinion on the Michigan Wolverines sign-stealing scandal.

 

In recent days, the Michigan Wolverines have been the talk of college football—but not for the right reasons.

The NCAA is currently looking into the Wolverines after they were exposed by investigators for their complex multi-year sign-stealing scheme.

 

Video and images of Connor Stalions, the alleged scheme leader, helping Michigan coaches on the sidelines during their 45-23 victory over the Ohio State Buckeyes last season surfaced on Tuesday.

 

Former Ohio State standout quarterback C.J. Stroud was questioned about the controversy following the release of those videos. The rookie for the Houston Texans followed the right path, as one might anticipate.

 

Stroud remarked, “They beat us,” at the press conference. “This is how things are. Though I’m not entirely satisfied with it, I’m in the NFL now. What occurred in college doesn’t concern me.”

 

According to Stroud, the Buckeyes ‘had an idea’ of what was happening in Ann Arbour. Despite this, he said he is not concerned about the scandal and is only thinking about his future in the NFL.

 

“In the end, things are as they are, even though we had an inkling that certain things were happening. I’m not here to argue for or against that. I am now a Texan. What is is, what is. I’m not delusional about that.

 

The Wolverines lost to TCU 51-45 in the semifinals of the 2022 playoffs, despite having an elaborate plan in place that involved going to over 30 games for 11 different teams over the course of the previous three seasons.

 

Despite this, Ohio State was able to qualify for the playoffs and lost in the semifinal game 42-41 due to a last-second field goal.
