Michigan football:

    The Big Ten will not play football this fall, a decision still being felt across the conference. That will sting even more if the SEC plays out its 2020 college football season.   The heat between the two conferences is real. It’s the regional rivalry between two $700 million conferences that helps drive the sport. Perhaps, just for one year, Big Ten fans can adopt an SEC school to root for on the couch. Yeah, we know, it’s almost impossible.   MORE: Where is college football being played in 2020?

    By Ben Klayman ANN ARBOR, Mich. (Reuters) - The loss of college football hurts fans, businesses in Ann Arbor, Michigan Football in the college town of Ann Arbor, Michigan, isn't just a sport. It's a way of life and even a lifeline. But with the cancellation of the University of Michigan's fall football season, that lifeline has been clipped, and coffee shop owner Russ Furrha is among the business owners wondering how they and the city will survive. Furrha, who was a walk-on player for the Michigan Wolverines in 2008, last month opened the Drip Shop Coffee Co across from the team's home stadium, affectionately known as the Big House. Part of his bet was being close to the venue,...
    The Detroit Free Press and other media have reported Big Ten commissioners have voted to cancel the fall football season because of COVID-19. An official statement is expected Tuesday. It's unclear if football would be played in the spring, but the economic impact of canceling football would certainly devastate the economy of Ann Arbor and East Lansing. A Forbes report ranked the University of Michigan as the 3rd most valuable team in 2019, with a three-year average revenue of $147 million. Michigan State took the 22nd spot, with the Spartans seizing a three-year average revenue of $87 million. A 2007 study from the Anderson Economic Group estimated the economic impact of Big 10 football games...

    Despite pleas from Big Ten football players and coaches in recent days to compete this fall, the conference announced the cancellation of the 2020 season on Tuesday. The decision, reportedly finalized in talks late Monday night, came as COVID-19 cases continued to rise at an alarming rate nationwide. The Big Ten ultimately felt holding football games was not in the best interest of student-athlete safety, citing unknowns over the long-term effects of the coronavirus. The Big Ten is the first Power 5 conference to officially nix its campaign. “The mental and physical health and welfare of our student-athletes has been at the center of every decision we have made regarding the ability to proceed forward,” said commissioner Kevin Warren in a statement. “As...

    “Why are they not making the OSU/Mich game last game of the season?”   That’s the text I received from a thread with my three best friends seconds after the Big Ten schedule was released Wednesday morning. Michigan will play at Ohio State on Oct. 24 this year — a change that former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said “takes your breath away.”   “It’s heartbreaking, to be honest with you. But adaptability, sacrifice are all gonna be critical on everyone’s part,” Meyer said on the Big Ten Network.  Meyer knows the rivalry best. He was 7-0 as a head coach against the Wolverines. The Big Ten, however, sacrificed its biggest tradition.  You can try to understand the Big Ten logic and television networks’ decision-making process. They want...
