The fight that followed the game was an inexcusable ending to the Michigan Wolverines' loss to the Wisconsin Badgers. Juwan Howard was not happy Wisconsin head coach Greg Gard used a timeout, hesitated to go to the postgame handshake line and then wound up throwing a slap/punch (whatever you want to call it) that struck Wisconsin assistant Joe Krabbenhoft in the face.

Here’s how it went down from Howard’s point of view:

Andy Katz from the Big Ten Network and NCAA.com condemned Howard’s actions and called for his suspension:

CBS Sports’ Seth Davis followed suit with his postgame remarks:

Former Michigan football fullback Khalid Hill always has something to say about Michigan athletics, and he came to Howard’s support here:

Colin Cowherd always has takes, but not here. Saying Howard has to be better:

Former ESPN color analyst Dan Dakich chimed in on the situation with some...interesting thoughts:

On his couch at home, the great Dick Vitale still needed to voice his opinion (get better soon Dickie V!):

Future Pro Football Hall of Famer and former Wisconsin offensive tackle Joe Thomas called Howard a “tough guy”:

Former Wisconsin guard Ben Brust spoke his mind:

Michigan man and Barstool Sports president Dave Portnoy said Howard was “assaulted”:

ESPN’s Damien Woody says there is no way Howard should be fired:

Keep it locked to Maize n Brew for the latest on this and the suspensions that will surely be handed down following this incident.
