This news was broke this morning. Slackers.
Ohio was looking for a contest to replace the previously played annual game against Pennsylvania. Michigan will likely drop the East-West game for this instead.
- The first Michigan-Ohio all-star football game is scheduled for 1 p.m. on June 14, 2014, at Donnell Stadium in Findlay, Ohio
- Both sides will field 40-man rosters. Ohio will announce its team Feb. 8 and Michigan on Feb. 15.
- The name of the game is the Ohio-Michigan High School Football Border Classic
- Visions of having the game at Ohio Stadium, Michigan Stadium or Spartan Stadium are on hold until the NCAA allows a Division I facility to be used.
On paper, Michigan will be the underdog most years. Still, I'm looking forward to see how our Michigan talent measures up. CMIIW, but doesn't the MHSAA restrict live televising of such events? If so, that needs to be changed.
