Jalen Rose: Chris Webber should apologize to Michigan

The Detroit News

Chris Webber is planning a book and documentary about his time at Michigan. But it sounds like he will be doing so without any contributions from other members of the Wolverines' Fab Five.

Jalen Rose was asked about the documentary during an interview with HoopsHype.com.

Said Rose: "It's not a legitimate documentary if the other four guys don't participate."

Those four would be Rose, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson.

"I haven't heard anything about it except from the media," Rose added.

Rose maintains his belief that Webber should apologize for his involvement in the Ed Martin scandal while at Michigan.

"I heard through mutual friends that he's upset that I said that I feel like he should have come out and apologize for some transgressions that happened at the University of Michigan," Rose said. "But I still stand behind that.

"... So while we're still brothers and I hope that we're going to make amends. ... One of the great things of being teammates and friends is we should be able to speak openly and honestly. And hopefully he finds a way to realize and apologize about what happened in Michigan. It ain't just about you. It's about the players, it's about the coach. ... So it's bigger than just him. And the fans deserve it, the history of the University of Michigan deserves it.

"And all he had to do is say two words. It's not brain surgery. They are, 'I'm sorry.'"
