If any of the lesser known coaches were smart, they would've said they'd give 1/2 of their winnings to ChadTough and 1/2 to their charity of choice. Then they'd get the Michigan fan vote.

if MGoBlog can raise almost $35k for CFS/ME in about a week off season then maybe during football season MGoBlog can run a ChadTough fundraiser and hit the $100k goal on its own.  tie it to the season opener and run through the season.  make it annual if it hits the $100k mark.  my guess is it would raise a lot more in the 4+months of the football season than the infiniti challenge.

From the legal statement. Boycott INFINITI!!!!!!!!

INFINITI has the right to decide if the Winning Coach from the 2018 Challenge will be allowed to participate in the Challenge the following year. Ultimately the winning coach agrees to forego participation in the following year's INFINITI Coaches Charity Challenge program, but will be eligible to participate again after sitting out for one year.

....this excerpt is on the main page along with an image of Beilein:

John Beilein,

University of Michigan

John Beilein has won an impressive 776 games during his career, not to mention he's championed this Challenge for the past two years running. Can he make his winning streak a hat-trick?

 

Did they change their mind or did they mistakenly leave him out?

Just above that excerpt about John Beilein is the following excerpt:

Thad Matta,
Ohio State

In 2015 Thad Matta set a winning victory record for the Ohio State Buckeyes, but can he set a similar record for the INFINITI Coaches' Challenge?

So I don't think one should take the main page too seriously.

We should just break the rules somehow and get Ace to represent Michigan in the challenge for CFS instead of Beilein for ChadTough!

At this point, we might as well keep our winning streak going, but for different causes each year.
