Is Michigan the worst? Evidence points to ‘Yes’

USA Today Sports

“We don’t give a damn about the whole state of Michigan!”

It’s a phrase used often throughout the state of Ohio, and not just in Columbus anymore.

The University of Cincinnati became a popular transfer destination following a successful 11-win 2018 season. Coached by Luke Fickell, a former Urban Meyer assistant, he brought in a handful of new transfers, many of which received waivers for immediate eligibility in 2019.

The latest, wide receiver Blue Smith, was granted a waiver Wednesday. It probably would not have been possible without Ohio State’s cooperation. Justin Williams reports that Ohio State did not just cooperate, they submitted the waiver on Smith’s behalf.

Only one transfer to Cincinnati was denied a waiver, offensive tackle James Hudson. The former blue chip recruit cited mental health issues when he decided to leave Michigan. Instead of supporting the player, Jim Harbaugh suggested Hudson faked it to receive immediate eligibility. Needless to say, Harbaugh’s stance on Hudson was widely criticized in the Buckeye state.

When Hudson’s mother heard how Ohio State helped Smith, she shared a message for Michigan.

She should have simply said, “I don’t give a damn about the whole state of Michigan.”

    Who cares?

    What’s up with all the state bashing?

    Utah earlier, and now Michigan?

    As much as I love my home state of Kentucky, got to say that Michigan as a State is pretty damn awesome.

    From Grand Haven to the UP… hard to beat.

    Michigan as a football team is so overrated lately. Haven’t even won their conference with Harbaugh but get all the hype. Lame. They’ve taken Notre Dames spot as preseason hype train award every year.

    Clearly KSR has been trying to branch out and be more than just KENTUCKY sports radio, which is fine of course, but the outside stuff they choose to write on is pretty laughable. KSR of old is long gone my friends.

    Born and bred in Michigan. Parents were from Kentucky. I have a lot of family in Ohio as well but outside Ohio state fans, I’ve never heard anyone say they “hate” the university of Michigan, much less the whole state. Michigan fans hate OSU,like the uk/ul rivalry but not the state of Ohio.

    Give Roush a break. He admitted on an earlier post that he still lives in his parents’ basement.

    More fake news. Harbaugh has come and said he supports players transferring 1 time. Also, Hudson lost a position battle last season, and was in line to be a backup again this season. He transferred to play right away.

    Michigan is very nice, Ohio on the other hand is an overall shitshow. But I’m not trying to win over the Cincinnati radio market so I guess our opinions differ
