Michigan football facing Alabama in 2012 not close to being finalized

By AnnArbor.com Staff

The Michigan football team squaring off with Alabama in 2012 is not a done deal just yet.

Following reports by MGoBlog that a contract for the game to be played in Dallas, Texas was being signed Monday, the Mobile (Ala.) Press Register was told Sunday night by an unnamed U-A source that a Wolverines-Crimson Tide clash is "being considered as a possible addition to Alabama's 2012 schedule, but a deal between the schools is not close to being finalized at this point."

This is what I am talking about - to be the best you must play the best, even early in the season. Theo212...several of our friends have left the site, life is too short.....

Saban "Slick Nick" will get rocked attempting to play the 2011 Nationional Champion Wolverines in 2012. I can see the internet website 'Fire Saban' already, very similar to the 'Fire Tressel' one coming our way this January....Wow.....!

I like to see the higher quality opponent on the schedule but I would like it more if it were a home-n-home. That means more to the fans of both schools. Also, what is the status of ND in the future? Brandon came out and said the 25 year deal Martin made was never signed. Is ND on the schedule after the night game in '11? I noticed ND was busy trying to get Texas in a four year deal.

It would be kind of fun to go on a road trip to the Big D to watch Michigan humble Slick Nick. Hopefully by that time, we'll have fixed the defense. I'm pretty sure the game would be held at Jerry Jones World in Arlington too. Guess I better start saving up for the $6 waters, $20 pizzas, and $10 hot dogs.
