In our latest Michigan Wolverines news roundup, game week has finally arrived for Michigan football, another Sherrone Moore suspension update, and more.
The wait for Michigan football fans is nearly over. The East Carolina game is now just five days away and the Michigan Wolverines will finally kick off the 2023 season.
It’s been a tumultuous offseason for Michigan football to say the least. Jim Harbaugh flirted with the NFL once again, and then, there was the whole kerfuffle with the NCAA, which is still ongoing.
In fact, there was more news out this week as Sherrone Moore will be suspended by the Michigan Wolverines for the game against East Carolina.
It’s a self-imposed one-game ban for the Michigan football offensive coordinator, which the NCAA will accept as his penalty for recruiting infractions.
The fact that the NCAA has already confirmed, through Athletic reporter Austin Meek, that it will accept Moore’s punishment, but hasn’t done so with Jim Harbaugh, who is taking a three-game, self-imposed ban is telling.
That means that the NCAA will likely try to push for more penalties. We’ll see how that saga plays out, but I’m not sure imposing the three-game ban was the right move by Michigan football.
