Did Cassius Winston just get caught in a lie about why he did not go to Michigan?

Sharing is caring!

Yesterday, we published a piece about former Michigan State point guard Cassius Winston throwing shade at Michigan while revealing why he chose the Spartans over the Wolverines.

During a podcast, Winston claimed that the reason why he chose MSU over Michigan is that the Wolverines were “too soft” for his liking.

But did Cassius Winston just get caught in a lie?

According to a tweet from Shane Kinnee from September of 2015, Winston texted him that Michigan told him they no longer had a scholarship available for him because they “offered a kid” and he took it. That “kid” was Zavier Simpson.

Nation, you be the judge. Did Cassius Winston just get caught in a lie?

Michael Fulmer’s comeback start with Tigers is aligning with a special day in Detroit

It has been a long road back for Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer, who has gone nearly 2 years without pitching against hitters from another team.

But on Wednesday, Fulmer took the mound for the Tigers in a Summer Training game against the Cincinnati Reds, and now he is lined up perfectly to make his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery. That start looks like it will come on what is an unofficial holiday in Detroit.

Opening Day.

Though Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire would not confirm that Fulmer will be starting the Tigers home opener on Monday against the Kansas City Royals, he did not deny it either.

“We like it,” Gardenhire said after Wednesday’s game. “We’re not going to announce our plans to the world so they know what’s coming, so I’m not going to tell you exactly what’s going to happen. That could happen, but we’re not guaranteeing it.”

Regardless of when Fulmer makes his comeback start, it will be an emotional day and we wish him the best of luck.
