Phil Steele is predicting Hell will freeze over
But this year, his book is wrong about one thing - Hell will freeze over before Michigan plays Toledo in the Little Caesars Bowl, which he is predicting.
Just as a whole, however you want to describe the Michigan football faithful, they are far too arrogant and snobbish to even consider playing at Ford Field in December against a Mid-American Conference opponent. It would be perceived as punishment rather than a reward for the season.
It's the same way with Michigan State, even though George Perles is closely attached to the Little Caesars Bowl. It's one thing to play a road game against Florida Atlantic at Ford Field, another a bowl game.
To me, it's the wrong idea. Michigan and Michigan State should embrace the Little Caesars Bowl. They should want to play there. It would be the right thing to do in so many ways.
But I just don't believe it will ever happen.
