Michigan Football May Happen This Year After All!
You may just see your Wolverines out on the field this season after all.
According to ESPN, the Big Ten is discussing Thanksgiving weekend as one of several options to start its football season.
Starting the season in January with a limited schedule of 8 or 9 games at indoor venues has generated the most discussion so far, but also kicking off the season around Thanksgiving is a possibility.
The Big Ten was the first conference to postpone its fall football season due to the coronavirus pandemic. Believe it or not, there was criticism from players, coaches, and administrators regarding the decision.
Just weeks ago, Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren said the league had formed a “return to competition task force”, which will examine options for the football season and other fall sports.
Ohio State and Penn State coaches have pushed for an early January start with the season wrapping up before the NFL draft.
It sounds like one of the scenarios will happen and I believe we will know in a matter of weeks. Growing up in Ohio and being a Buckeyes fan, I’m excited as long as I can talk my trash to all of my Michigan friends!
