Chris Webber’s ongoing beef with Jalen Rose has kept Michigan’s legendary “Fab Five” from reuniting

Chris Webber and Jalen Rose were recruiting rivals growing up in Detroit, but that didn't stop them from being close friends. They were so close, in fact, that Rose followed Webber to the University of Michigan, joining a legendary 1991 recruiting class that came to be known as "The Fab Five." Those five guys revolutionized college basketball and won a whole lot of games, but lost both their trips to the NCAA Final. The second of those losses came after Webber's infamous timeout call. And all those wins? They've been vacated because of a sprawling scandal that included a booster, a gambling ring, and payouts to a number of Wolverines players, including Webber.
So the "Fab Five" legacy is complicated, in large part because of Webber's mistakes. And that fact has fueled decades of beef between the former best friends. Webber has come across as sensitive and standoffish about his past, while Rose has perhaps been too aggressive in pushing Webber to apologize for his past. This beef between them has showed in TV programs, documentaries, and books, and it's only gotten worse.
This episode of Beef History tells the tale of a friendship turned feud, with the hope that airing things out might help put the "Fab Five" and their legacy back where they ought to be: together, and prominent in Michigan history.

  • Why was Chris Webber punished for accepting money? Bullshit. He’s a product of the system, the dollars are presented to him because the system allows for boosters and coaches to concoct their own gambling rings in college basketball. Why punish the kid for doing the obviously most logical decision?

  • Chris Webber is so overated, he ain't no hall of famer ! He's famous for calling a time-out in college, plus he traveled on that same play. In Sacramento he couldn't beat Shaq & Kobe ! and as a commentator he talks too much, over analysing the play ! 7-rings Robert Horry should be voted in before Webber !

  • Webber, legitimately, not realizing there were no timeouts left in that game against the Tar Heels, would be like Einstein forgetting a property in his "theory of relativity"?... It wouldn't happen! As decorated a player Webber was for leading to, and during his time a Michigan, it's impossible a play of his caliber and basketball IQ, would not be aware of that detail, in that moment!? WEBBER THREW THE GAME, AND JUMPED TO THE NBA, BECAUSE A BOOSTER PAID HIM TO... Rose has never stated it publically; BUT, I'VE SAYING THAT SHIZ FOR YEARS, 'CAUSE I WITNESSED IT!

  • Duke's championships are flawed. Michigan, UNLV and Kentucky. Look at those last plays and decide for yourself. Then, research what happened after those games. UNLV (Larry Johnson) investigation, Tark left. Michigan ( Webber) Kentucky Pitino leaves a championship team, (bolts to the NBA) didn't guard the inbound and everybody knew who the ball was going to. Ball sailed in the air and nobody went after the ball and Laettner shoots at the free throw line. While Kentucky players watched. Laettner stomped a Kentucky player in the chest and wasn't tossed.

  • Chris webber was PAID to lose that game on purpose... That's why he called timeout

  • So what does Rose need an apology for...The time out?....the coach losing his job?...for Chris taking money and not admitting it?...for not coming back to Michigan the next year?......the time out, he can let that go!...It's the coach's job to monitor the players and they all were wild, he can let that go!...they all took money including Jalen, he can let that go!...leaving and going pro, that was a business decision, he can let that go!...Jalen has made a career and a bunch of money off of Chris Webber's name time to let it go and offer CWeb an apology for keeping it going for so long!

  • Michigan, the US Government, and Jalen have all gone overboard with the attention and care given. C-Webb hasn't enjoyed it. If only they/we could not talk about it for a few years, time could help and possibly heal it. But even more than that, Biden didn't win and Epstein didn't kill himself.

  • Seeing Webber broadcasting games (especially college games) is like a huge slap in the face to we fans. I don’t think that he should be talking about a game he clearly doesn’t understand. His comments even today are ridiculous and pretty much the same from game to game. Athletic prowess doesn’t show an understanding of the game but allowing him to talk about it makes him seem to be an idiot

    • It is amateur basketball. Going to two straight finals games was an accomplishment. Their biggest contribution was bringing style to the NCAA. Forcing coaches and programs to stop with the conservatism. I have a friend who graduated from Michigan. She always brags and thinks fondly of her school days at Michigan during the Fab Four reign. She graduated from a top tier academic university and had fun going to the games. She wouldn't trade those four years for any other college experience. Just came a tad short of winning a college championship. Not bad at all.

    • Ikr! However, had Webber known Ed Harris would RAT them out, he would have admitted to getting $$$ from him. I was more upset over Jalen Rose telling on himself, and he grew up around street dudes, NONE of them have anything to apologize for. That shyt is old news, NOBODY will EVER forget the FAB FIVE, by the same token, NOBODY can remember Duke or the Tar Heels whole roster. They should have never been in that position where Webber got trapped anyway, making him call time out! I felt sorry for him.
