Ed Martin and the Fab Five

Michigan, led by its flashy Fab Five of Jalen Rose, Chris Webber, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson, took the nation by storm during the early 1990s. The group of freshmen stormed to back-to-back national championship berths, though they eventually fell short in both contests. The losses weren't their only downfalls. A later investigation revealed that booster Ed Martin (right) provided $616,000 to Webber, Maurice Taylor, Robert Traylor and Louis Bullock, setting off a number of subsequent punishments. Head coach Steve Fisher (bottom left) was fired, the Wolverines were placed on a two-year probation period and the program was forced to surrender its 1992 and 1993 Final Fours.
