SBNation with the scoop. What surprises me about the CFL is the whole jav-in or jav-out scheme. And also, the bound-for-street rule. Is there any reason the NFL hasn't instituted these yet?
What an adventure!Edit: To ensure the longevity of this thread, I feel like I must inform all that this is satire. Or is it?
Since the Hawaii AD is having grave concerns about the fate of their football program, let's just say they do have to drop football.
That would leave Michigan with a short amount of time for a replacement game.
Here is the current schedule for 2016
|10/15||vs Penn State*|
|10/22||vs Illinois (HC)^|
|10/29||at Michigan State*|
|12/3||B1G Championship Game#|
I used FB schedules.com to and went through all FBS school's schedules in 2016 to look for openings on 9/3. I eliminated teams Michigan has scheduled future games with, teams they will play in 2014-2015 and teams who have a TBA date with an opponent already lined up in 2016, assuming that it will be their opener.
Teams followed by Michigan's record against them
- Appalachian State
- California (6-2)
- Connecticut (2-0)
- Florida State (1-1)
- Georgia (1-1)
- Georgia State (Never played them; new team to FBS)
- Kentucky (1-0)
- Louisville (Never played)
- Marshall (Never played)
- Mississippi (1-0)
- Missouri (2-2)
- New Mexico (Never played)
- Ohio University (Never played)
- Old Dominion (Never played)
- San Diego State (2-0)
- Southern Mississippi (Never played)
- Syracuse (6-5-1)
- Troy (Never played)
- UAB (Never played)
- Utah State (Never played)
- UTSA (Never played; started playing football in 2012)
- Vanderbilt (10-0-1)
There are also two other possibilities. Swap the bye week, which I don't see happening. Or, schedule an FCS team.
I recall last time the line they trotted out was 'I don't have many facts to share'
Are the four players practicing today? Will they be practicing while the investigation is ongoing?
