The University of Michigan sounds ready to open up in the fall.

President Mark Schlissel had previously said there was no way football would happen in the fall if the campus wasn’t open during the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, he’s already done a bit of pivoting. According to Zach Shaw, Schlissel said Thursday a formal decision was coming in June, but he appeared “confident” classes would happen in the fall.

It’s amazing how fast things can change when it looks like football season won’t happen. As I said over the weekend when Schlissel suggested the season might not happen, the boosters should remove him if he follows that path.

They don’t have a choice. It’s nothing personal at all. It’s really not. You simply can’t be the Michigan Wolverines and have a guy running the show who won’t let football happen.

Now it sounds like the campus will be open to some degree in the fall. That means the Wolverines will likely be playing football, which is a good sign for the B1G.

After all, you can’t get humiliated by the Buckeyes if you don’t play the season! At least fans will now get to enjoy that show!

Hopefully nothing changes. As much as I dog the Wolverines, it’s better for college football when they’re playing well.
