Appalachian State has been in the news about the football team making a move up the food chain. Now here's more Appy State news.
Michigan has scheduled them for their 2014 opener for a rematch. Personally this is something the Wolverines should stay away from. We all know what happened last time these two teams met in 2007. 34-32, ball game, thanks for coming.
U-M will pay ASU $850,000 if it's still an FCS program at the time of the game, or $1 million if it's in the FBS, an Appalachian State spokesman said. It is a one-game contract.
“We look forward to facing Appalachian State again,” U-M athletic director Dave Brandon said in a released statement.
Really? What will happen if the Mountaineers come back to Ann Arbor and stun the Wolverines again? There might be a suicide watch group on campus.
Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore welcomes the challenge of trying to knock off one of the titans in college football.
“To have the University of Michigan invite us back is the ultimate compliment for us as a program and a University,” ASU coach Jerry Moore said in a released statement. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to have a new generation of players experience a game day at the Big House and to test themselves against college football’s all-time winningest program.”
I'm going to be a homer and hope that the Wolverines fare better than the last time they faced this group of Mountaineers.
