When did Michigan last lose to a team that was 0-at least 5?
Never?

My physical therapist is a Michigan fan, native of the state, and alum.  She was fired up about firing JH three weeks ago.

I'll see her on Monday, she'll just roll her eyes at me and say "Don't bring it up."

Michigan football has been paused indefinitely due to presumptive positive COVID tests.  There is a merciful God.

UM has to beat Maryland to avoid its first winless home season.  Ever.

I think they played their last game this year.

I think they played their last game this year.
When UW and UMD had to cancel games due to COVID it was two games.  That suggests that Michigan could be back for "Champions Weekend", no?  

Also, here is an interesting possibility:




What if Michigan misses their next two (vUMD, @tOSU) but IS available for "Champions Weekend" and further assume that tOSU is ineligible for the B1GCG either because they have to cancel their game with MSU this weekend or because Michigan has to cancel THE GAME next weekend and Ohio State can't find another opponent.  

Could THE GAME be played on "Champions Weekend"?  

It would be screwy because it obviously isn't B1G-E vs B1G-W but there might be a simple solution to that.  Wisconsin and Minnesota didn't get to play for the Axe this year due to an outbreak in Minneapolis.  That rivalry is obviously important to them so what if, for Champions Weekend we had UW/MN and tOSU/M then had the other five teams in each division play cross-division games?  

It is possible that the cross-division games would be tOSU/UW and M/MN anyway because:
  • Ohio State and Wisconsin are likely to both finish ineligible for the CG but with the best record or next best after the CG participant in their respective divisions.  
  • Michigan and Minnesota are currently 2-4 and 2-3 respectively.  That puts Michigan tied for 5th/6th in the B1G-E and Minnesota tied for 4th/5th/6th in the B1G-W.  

So basically you'd just be replacing the tOSU/UW and M/MN cross-overs with rivalry games that got cancelled due to COVID.  It makes sense to me, lets do it!

No I actually like him. I didn't like him when he was coaching. 

But watching him in his media job break film down, talk about technique, coaching and his philosophies- it's very easy to see why he was so successful. He is a football genius imo.

they should just cancel the last two Michigan games and save us the embarrassment. Who really wants to see Ryan Day murder Harbaugh on live tv? I'd rather not.
