If you are a fan of the Michigan Wolverines, you may want to pass on reading this one and just get a good night’s sleep for Saturday’s big game against Ohio State.
Ok, last chance to close this post….
Alright, you asked for it.
According to reports, Kevin Schwarzel has been selected to referee The Game at the Big House.
In case you are not sure who Schwarzel is, he is the referee who screwed Michigan on multiple occasions during the 2016 game in Columbus.
Here is a post from Reddit that pretty much sums up who many Wolverines fans feel right now.
The guy who called this pass interference, but not this or this. The guy who resides in Athens and is openly an Ohio State fan. The guy who was not allowed to officiate the ’06 game due to potential bias.
The most blatantly biased member of a crew who called zero penalties from scrimmage on Ohio State in that game is going to be on the field tomorrow. The same crew who robbed Michigan of a conference title and playoff birth. Don’t get your hopes up, everyone.
How in the world does the Big Ten allow an official who is an Ohio State fan to call the Ohio State vs. Michigan game?
Hey @joelklatt, from one journalist to another. Keep an eye on referee Kevin Schwarzel. He’s openly as OSU fan, was kept away from ‘06 game, and was beyond biased in ‘16 with several pass interference calls against UM and none against OSU. He should not be working this game.
