Michigan Thursday: Friday Night College Football

I like Friday night college football. I would never want Michigan to play on Friday night even if the Twins are in the playoffs.  Anyone old enough to remember that game?  Michigan does not need to play on Friday, it hurts travel, missing classes, and doesn't allow recruits to attend the game. 

The NFL has taken Thursday night football from college football and now there really aren't any good Thursday night college games as ESPN really can't compete with the NFL and Amazon.   

So Fox has taken the opportunity to show Friday night games and they just released their schedule for next season and it's full of Big Ten Games.  (still not used to seeing the PAC 12 teams in there)

Saw news reports yesterday that confirmed, Warde was the reason Jimmy left.

I think that's spin from the Harbaugh camp. Blame Warde, when the real reason is that Jim wants a SB ring and wouldn't have been satisfied remaining at Michigan with nothing left to prove.

Goblu- I saw that yesterday, too. Don't know if I can completely buy it, but it is the only explanation we have received. Jimmy said he felt slighted when Tony Pititi stood him up on an important meeting (and rightfully so) and didn't feel the love from a new Michigan contract until it was too late. He said he wanted the support from Warde over Cheeseburgergate and wanted to stay at Michigan. I never saw anything but positive support for Jim, and the big contract eventually came, whether it was on Jim's schedule or not. So who knows?. It is what it is.

Goblu said...

The reports quote Warde and others at UM. So not sure how that’s spin.

I beg to differ, Warde looks like a stupid, brainless fat asshole, and probably too fat to wipe himself after plugging up an industrial toilet.

Read between the lines folks, Jimmy wanted a committee of three to decide about hamburger gate, because he did not think Warde would be fair.
In fairness, Warde should use head to measurement the size of butt plugs for elephants (no good fat slob)

Scotty- That's quite possible.

in MHO:
1) Little jimmy is all about little jimmy. Nothing more nothing less.
2) Friday night football is for High School football.

You have the right to call him "little Jimmy", but if we start losing all decent games; you'd wish Harbaugh was still here!
