Kim Kozlowski The Detroit News Published 10:41 PM EST Dec 10, 2018 Carly Apple's dad came from a family of six brothers, three of whom had a rare genetic disorder that leads to intellectual disabilities and autism. She loves her three uncles, and can't say enough about the many other people who also have the disorder, known as Fragile X Syndrome. But Apple has known since she was 10 she is a carrier of the Fragile X gene. So when she and her husband, Jonathan Frederick, married in 2013, they began planning their family with in vitro fertilization, a reproductive technology for infertile couples.

But he hasn’t forgotten about it. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and his players believed they stopped OSU quarterback J.T. Barrett short on fourth-and-1. Officials ruled it a first down, confirmed after a review. On the next play, Curtis Samuel scored on a 15-yard run in a 30-27 victory the last time the teams met at Ohio Stadium. Harbaugh said at his postgame news conference he was “bitterly disappointed” by the officiating and held his hands a foot apart saying Barrett missed the first down by that length. "That play. I don't want to talk about it,” Gary said Monday night on the Inside Michigan Football radio show. “Everybody knows what play I'm talking about. That's something I will never forget about. I'll always keep it … [Read more...] about Crucial fourth-down play against Ohio State still gnaws at Rashan Gary two years later
