DP on B1G: "The Presidents and Chancellors will vote today. Mich. probably not going to play, Mich. St. not going to play, Maryland's probably [won't] play. But you're going to get Nebraska, Iowa, Purdue, Indiana, Ohio St. Wisconsin wants to play but may not be able to." pic.twitter.com/6QiusRB5t1— Dan Patrick Show (@dpshow) September 14, 2020
It's hard to believe we are sitting here in the middle of September and a "Blue Blood" program in Michigan (I use the term blue blood very loosely here since Michigan hasn't won anything worth a shit in decades) doesn't want to play fall football. Besides the excuse of being just a bunch of pussies (Ann Arbor is a Whore after all) I'm completely flabbergasted that Michigan would decide not to play football.
I don't want to hear about Covid when the Lions are playing NFL football and high school football is being played all across the midwest. There is something much more about this and it's not the obvious political angle.
Michigan wants to completely fuck over their rival in Ohio State. The Buckeyes have been pounding the shit out of the Skunkbears for so long they can't even think straight. The Buckeyes are the odds-on favorite to win the Big Ten again because they own Michigan and the rest of their shitty ass conference. But they also have enough talent to win it all this year. Yes, even the Natty.
So if you are Michigan you know you are gonna get your brains beat in again so what do you do instead? You quit. You blame Covid even though it doesn't kill athletes or young people. Talk about playing the role of villain and Michigan is playing it to perfection. Ohio State needs Michigan to play ball this fall. Don't even entertain the thought of spring football. It's not happening. But if Michigan doesn't play football then Sparty won't play, Rutgers will back out and Maryland will not play because of political pressure. And we all know Northwestern ain't gonna play till they get "unionized" or whatever the fuck they want.
So that would basically leave 8 teams in the conference to play. It ain't enough. And thus Michigan has completely fucked over their rival in Ohio State. Even if Ohio State plays 8 games they aren't gonna qualify over the ACC, Big 12 and SEC conferences candidates who play a minimum of 10 games plus a conference championship game. The Buckeyes have already lost two of their best players, CB Shaun Wade and OL Wyatt Davis, who decided to opt out and prepare for the NFL Draft instead of waiting on Michigan to decide on a Big Ten season.
Sorry Buckeyes but the Michigan administration completely fucked you guys over. No National Championship season. No Heisman Trophy season for QB Justin Fields. No annual ass stomping of your heated rival. You get a big fat nothing because Michigan said "fuck it" and decided to go home to play video games instead of getting schooled on the playground again.
It's so diabolical and evil on Michigan's part you gotta kind of tip your hat. Michigan is the ultimate villain in sports now. They have destroyed livelihoods all across the nation. Cities that rely on football in the fall can no longer stay open. Bars and restaurants and shops from Columbus to Lincoln will no longer get that extra traffic of football fans this fall will be pressured to make difficult cuts. Life altering cuts. All because Michigan decided to take their football with their heads tucked in between their vaginas and go home.
