Cupcakes of Death!: Michigan Schedules New 2010 Opponents
Everyone loves cupcakes. Come on! Who doesn't love cupcakes?
Michigan is slowly but surely filling out it's 2010 schedule.
They made some good progress today by chiseling in games versus Massachussetts for September 18th, 2010.
Michigan also scheduled another contest versus MAC opponent Bowling Green on September 25th.
Both games will be played in Michigan Stadium.
Athletic Director Bill Martin says he'strying to hunt down a nice profile opponent for Wolverines for the September 4th season opener and inaugural game for the newly-renovated Michigan Stadium.
I like cupcakes. But in college football terminology, Michigan fans should probably refrain from using such sentiments (including yours truly). Recent losses to Appalachian State and Toledo exempt Michigan fans from demeaning any future non-conference opponent ever again as far as I'm concerned. Unless, of course, it's Notre Dame :).
So now UM fans must ask themselves whether U.Mass (a great university and one of the best FCS football schools there is) and Bowling Green (a pretty decent MAC opponent) are truly "cupcake opponents".....OR:
CUPCAKES OF DEATH!!! Bwahahahahahaha!
I certainly hope not.
But I like the fact that Rodriguez and Martin are going after scheduling a little more aggressively in terms of filling the slates earlier and not waiting until the last second.
As far as that September 4th open date is concerned, Navy, Army and West Virginia are booked, but Pittsburgh doesn't seem to be doing anything on that Saturday (yet).
