Over the line? Danny Kanell trolls Michigan for cancelling game vs. Maryland
Because of the struggles Michigan and head coach Jim Harbaugh have endured during the 2020 season, posting just a 2-4 record, the program has been the butt of plenty of jokes. But CBS Sports personality Danny Kanell may have taken it a little too far.
On Wednesday, Michigan announced that it was cancelling this weekend’s game against Maryland due to increased concerns over positive COVID-19 cases within the Wolverines football program. Michigan will not be able to resume team activities until at least Monday, Dec. 7, putting the Ohio State game on Dec. 12 in jeopardy.
Upon hearing the news, Kanell fired off a tweet with a graphic of a white flag waving. The image was a reference to ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit saying he believed Michigan would “wave the white flag” and not play the Buckeyes in the final week of the regular season.
Herbstreit later apologized for the comment.

With Michigan’s cancellation, the Wolverines will end the 2020 season without a win at home for the first time in program history. Not a great year for Harbaugh and company.
Will Michigan be able to play next week? Ohio State’s B1G title hopes hinge on it.
