Central Michigan Investigating Whether Michigan Spy Connor Stalions Was On Sidelines vs Michigan State

The story involving Connor Stalions, the alleged mastermind behind the Michigan Wolverines sign-stealing scandal, just got a lot more crazier.

According to The Athletic, Central Michigan University is investigating whether Suspended Michigan staffer Connor Stalions was on the CMU sidelines during the Chippewas’ game against Michigan State back on September 1st.

Screenshots of a person who looks similar to Stalions began circulating online Monday night.

“We became aware of these photos late yesterday and we are in the process of determining the facts surrounding them,” CMU athletic director Amy Folan said in a statement provided to The Athletic. “As this process is ongoing, we have no further comment at this time.”


The Central Michigan allegation is the first that potentially places Stalions on the sideline of a game involving a Michigan opponent. Michigan beat Michigan State 49-0 at Spartan Stadium on Oct. 21.

Central Michigan faced Michigan State the night before Michigan began its season against East Carolina. Photos show Stalions on the Michigan sideline for the Sept. 2 opener.

Central Michigan has multiple staff members with ties to Michigan.

Central Michigan hosts Northern Illinois on Tuesday night.
