2008-2009 Season

Ben Cronin Will Redshirt

Cronin’s likely medical redshirt has been rumored for a while but it was made official today. Cronin will undergo surgery on Wednesday January 14th and will sit out 5-6 months during rehabilitation. In limited minutes this season Cronin has played with a noticeable limp and I think this is definitely the right decision in the long run. Quotes:


“After discussing Ben’s condition with his family and the U-M medical staff we have decided surgery is the appropriate action,” said Beilein. “Even though it is a setback, Ben has been fantastic with his attitude and his determination to get healthy as soon as he is able to rejoin the team.”


“It is a disappointment that I will not be able to practice and help this team get better, but I know this surgery is the best option for me right now,” said Cronin. “I am excited to get healthy and put this hip issue behind me. I am going to take it slow, but I know I will be working as hard as I can over the next five to six months to be ready for next season.”
