Michigan Thursday: Next Team Up = Rutgers?

Texas A&M is out of the Gator Bowl due to COVID, which has sent the Gator Bowl executives searching for another opponent for Wake Forrest.  An announcement today is expected that the fill in team will be Rutgers from the Big Ten East.  Rutgers did not make the 6 wins to accept a bowl invite and now is expected to get the invite.  Which would leave IU as the only Big East team not playing in a bowl game.   How Rutgers can get all its players back, get tested, practice, and play in a Bowl Game is beyond comprehension. The Gator Bowl is scheduled to be played at 11:00 at 12/31.

  • CFP Teams don't have to arrive until 12/29.  Michigan should consider waiting as long as possible.  Michigan is still expected to arrive on Saturday.
  • Happy Birthday to Jimmy he is 58 today!
  • Don Brown has hired Michigan Man Mike McCray as OLB coach at Umass.  Well done Don. 
  • CFP has now stated if a CFP team can't play due to COVID they have to forfeit

Warm weather is good for the virus, unfortunately Florida being a peninsula makes a difference
