There's a press release and everything:
The University of Michigan football team will face the University Alabama in the 2012 College Football Kick-off Event on Sept. 1, 2012, at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The game will be televised nationally in prime time.
Yeah. It's on. Hat Tip to MGoBlog for breaking this two months ago. We'll have a fun Q & A with Roll Bama Roll, SBN's Champagne of Bama Blogs, on Monday. For now, bask in the glow of Jerry World's gigantic HDTVs and his wonderful, wonderful money. Nice that this finally came to fruition, but one little question.
WHY NO HOME AND HOME!? /sobs, assumes fetal position/
Michigan is still two games short for the 2012 season, you may assume these will be tomato cans. Carry on.
