    [size=12pt]How 2 ball boys stopped opponent's signal-stealing, saved U-M's 1997 title[/size]
    BY MARK SNYDER • FREE PRESS SPORTS WRITER • June 18, 2008

    It was a Monday morning like so many others since Jonathan Datz began working for the district attorney's office in Broomfield, Colo.

    His assignment this April day -- as a deputy DA in a town halfway between Denver and Boulder -- was to follow up on a minor theft, talking to the victim of a car break-in and prepping her for the trial.

    But when the victim wasn't home, Datz and other members of his office were stuck killing time with her husband. And in just a few minutes, Datz learned the information he had craved for 10 1/2 years -- and it had nothing to do with criminal justice.

    At last, he had confirmation that his quick thinking -- and that of two other student managers -- helped preserve Michigan's undefeated football season in 1997.
    If you read the article, it mentions who was "stealing" the signs for Northwestern - and it's a guy with whom I went to college, LOL!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Never underestimate the power of a ballboy.
