Alabama Stars Refuse To Play Bowl Game vs Michigan

Two Alabama stars refuse to play in the bowl game vs Michigan.

One of the most highly-anticipated bowl games coming up is the Citrus Bowl showdown between Alabama and Michigan.

On paper, there are a lot of fun storylines pertaining to this one.

First and foremost, you have a battle between two of the more intriguing coaches in all of college football: Jim Harbaugh and Nick Saban.

Then there is the fact that these programs don’t frequently cross paths, making the idea of seeming them square off all the more exciting.

Finally, both Alabama and Michigan had somewhat disappointing campaigns in 2019. A victory would at the very least send fans off with a good taste in their mouth after an otherwise underwhelming season.

Unfortunately, it looks like at least one of the teams will not be at full strength for this bowl game match-up.

Alabama’s star pass rusher Terrell Lewis and All-American defensive back Trevon Diggs will reportedly not be participating in the big game.

According to Cecil Hurt, the pair is “not expected to participate in the Jan. 1 Citrus Bowl.”

Obviously this is not completely unexpected, as it is very common for top-tier NFL Draft prospects to sit out bowl games.

Nevertheless, the decision is still a disappointing one for anyone who was hoping to see Alabama at full strength.

Will the Crimson Tide ultimately be able to overcome being shorthanded and still hand Michigan a loss? We’ll all find out together come New Year’s Day.

  1. Sports top to bottom are corrupt. The outside influences, the players and the universities should all just quit! There needs to be a complete reset on amateur sports and kids need a serious education. The instant gratification generation needs to learn what work is and real endurance. Most all of them will end up like the rest of us work-a-day people and anyone too good is too good for our universities.
