Alabama vs. Michigan in 2012?

47

Very interesting to say the least... ed. - As awesome as this would be, I'm going to keep my skeptical hat on for the moment for two reasons: 1) As Cook points out, that would leave Michigan with only 6 home games, and even considering the money made from the TV deal would likely mitigate any real monetary losses from losing a home game, big time programs are still loathe to drop below seven home games. 2) From the Alabama side, we've heard plenty of rumors of a 2012 opener in Dallas (UCLA and Texas Tech being the two biggest), so it seems a little odd that such a huge match up could have been kept quiet for so long (according to Cook, the deal will be inked tomorrow). Still, we've been looking for a big name OOC opponent for 2012 and UM certainly fits the bill. Guess we'll know more soon. UPDATE: Estes tried to run down a source at UA to confirm or deny the Michigan rumors, and all he can get is that the matchup is "being considered" but no deal is close to being finalized at this point. Like I said before, we've heard rumors about several different teams and locations for the 2012 opener, so it would be highly unlikely that inking a deal with Michigan would have been kept under wraps right up 'til the deal is signed.
