Juwan Howard needs to sit: As you all know by now, Michigan head coach Juwan Howard threw a punch in the handshake line following his team's loss to Wisconsin on Sunday. It set off a brawl that was a terrible look for college basketball. I don't care why Howard was upset or what set him off, there's no excuse for his actions. Michigan needs to step in and suspend him, even before the university hears back from the Big Ten.
Howard should be sidelined for the rest of the season. Michigan should elevate Phil Martelli to take over in the interim and donate Howard's salary to charity. He has to be made an example of. Additionally, Wisconsin's Greg Gard needs to be suspended for at least one game for putting his hands on Howard before the punch was thrown. Neither man acted like an adult and, accordingly, both should be made to sit in the corner and think about what they've done.
