Dan Patrick: Michigan, Michigan State, and Maryland Probably Won’t Play

Videos by OutKick

Dan Patrick, as we’ve mentioned a number of times over the past month, has emerged as a Big Ten insider. In today’s dispatch, he says that the Big Ten chancellors and presidents are slated to vote this afternoon, and that there’s optimism for a majority of the schools to vote in favor of playing. However, he says even if that’s the case, that Michigan, Michigan State, and Maryland probably won’t play football this Fall:

This reporting is in dispute with what Brett McMurphy of Stadium reported on Sunday night:

This remains a fluid situation so I guess we’ll have to see what happens. A world where the Michigan Wolverines sit out the season where other Big Ten schools play would be absolutely wild and Jim Harbaugh would raise all sorts of cain if that manifested.

  1. Look at the Governors of the two States reportedly to hold out: Covidbros both. The fool from Maryland was glad to help out his pal Whitmer, just so it wouldn’t look political.

    Meanwhile, College games are being played, and High School games are ongoing.
