With two words and three exclamation points, Chris Webber kicked off what promises to be a fascinating chapter in the history of Michigan athletics -- the reunion between the Wolverines and one of their most controversial stars.
Webber's simple tweet landed at exactly midnight -- the precise end of his 10-year punishment by the NCAA for the Ed Martin scandal. During that period, the school wasn't allowed to associate with Webber, meaning there was no chance of a reconciliation for the school and the Fab Five.
Webber was accused of taking 280,000 from Martin and pled guilty to criminal contempt in a plea deal that avoided charges of perjury. The Wolverines served four years of probation as well as other punishments because of the scandal, which also included Maurice Taylor, Robert Traylor and Louis Bullock. Taylor and Bullock's 10-year sentences ended in 2012. Traylor died in 2011.
For most of that decade, Webber seemed perfectly happy to have left...

Har har, good for a laugh right? But what if I told you that was only the beginning...
