I’m skeptical. Whitmer’s up for reelection in 2022, isn’t she? “Prevented Michigan from playing college football” doesn’t sound like a solid reelection pitch to me.
Pretty good presidential pitch, though! They’re a dreadful program. Until they fire Harbaugh, the country’s better off shutting them down.
Jeff Snook is an Ohio State “insider” who claims the Buckeyes are trying to do an end-around the Big 10’s ban on football this fall by organizing a mini-conference of five or six teams. Schools would play each other twice, home and away. OSU wants Michigan to be part of that mini-conference for rivalry purposes, but supposedly Whitmer is dead set against college (or high-school) football being played in her state this fall.
