well that's just, like, your opinion, man
This was a proposed 16-team college football playoff by The Sporting News in 1990. Michigan would have ended up playing Florida State in the Hancock Bowl, with the winner facing ND or Clemson in the Blockbuster(lol) Bowl.
When Bielema left Wisconsin in a highly questionable move, his one stated reason was that he was tired of losing his assistant coaches because Wisconsin was unwilling to invest to compete. The implication was that Arkansas in the Mighty SEC West was up to the task.
Apparently, either Arkansas isn't willing to pay to play, losing out to a lowly ACC school, or Bret has personality issues and people just don't want to work with him.
Don't know how many people have been following this, but the St. Louis Rams could be headed back to LA.
Apparently there is a movement for a new stadium in LA.
The Rams would play at the LA Coliseum until the new LA stadium is completed. However, the city of St. Louis has pitched the Rams organization a new stadium idea to replace the old Edward Jones Dome.
Michigan is 29th on the second link list. Currently we are not on the first link list because, well we have not been good at football lately! Schlissel, Hackett, Harbaugh I believe will raise the bar for us to climb both lists. I was a bit surprised that UCLA and USC along with North Carolina were so high?
Five Cali schools in the top 25 academically (I guess I just did not think those institutions, save Cal Berkley and Stanford, were up that high academically).
Interesting article to read with the hope we now have for the future! Even though I was never a UM student, I have multiple family members and very close friends that are either current students are alumni. I take pride in being a Michigan (total school) fan!
