Paul Finebaum uses B1G schedule release to mock Michigan's Jim Harbaugh
Did you really think a pandemic would quiet Paul Finebaum’s criticism of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh? Well, if you did think that, you would be wrong.
On Wednesday morning, the B1G released its revised, 10-game, conference-only schedule for the 2020 season. One of the noticeable changes to the schedule was that Ohio State and Michigan will not meet on the final weekend of the regular season, a first since 1942.
Instead the two rivals will clash on Saturday, Oct. 24 in an effort to secure one of the most historic rivalries in college football. But that’s not why Finebaum believes the game was moved.
“I think they did it as a personal favor to Jim Harbaugh so he doesn’t end the season with a bad loss to Ohio State every year,” Finebaum said on ESPN Cleveland according to ESPN radio show Aaron Goldhammer.
Finebaum rarely misses an opportunity to take a jab at Harbaugh, whether it’s warranted or not.
Michigan has lost eight straight games to Ohio State, and the Buckeyes have posted a victory in 15 of the last 16 meetings.
