What happened to the two HUGE home-and-home series??

Submitted by AHM16 on August 18th, 2014 at 11:13 AM

It was announced last week that Michigan would be announcing two "HUGE" home-and-home series by the end of last week and that never happened. I am assuming that Notre Dame was one of the teams and the academic scandal that hit them delayed the announcement.. Just a hunch. Does anybody have an idea what is going on here?

It is possible that the game wasn't announced Friday because it would have been buried by the Notre Dame story.

I would expect it to be announced soon.

Or maybe someone realized they booked Miami (NTM) instead of Miami (YTM).

"They took everything, even the stuff we didn't steal!"


I don't know how it would fit or under what context it would make sense, but were I ever to write an autobiography, one of the two titles I would consider using would be ". . . Even the Stuff We Didn't Steal!"


The other option would be "10,000 Hours Inside a German Strip Club."  (That's a Beatles reference for you youngins.)

Hoping for a Texas, USC, LSU type announcement. Would be nice to travel to some of those venues and play quality opponents. Also, just another reason to look forward to my retirement age

adjective other than "huge" to describe the new home and home series.  Something more appropriate to the Michigan legacy.  

One Regent was quoted as saying, "'Huge?' That is how my 9 year old describes his lacrosse game vs Country Day."

Good point.  We all assumed that by the end of the week meant last week.  It could be any week. Damnit.

I actually had not even considered ND as a potential opponent and I think in our "guess the series" thread maybe 1  person had guessed ND.  If somehow it is ND as one of the 2 series they might punt this for another week or two.

I doubt it'll be Bama.  They backed out on their series with MSU.  In fact I'd be suprised if it was any SEC team.  I'd love for it, but just don't see a top tier SEC team doing it.  Maybe we'll get KY?

Michigan vs Notre Dame always has a big draw and while I don't see ND appearing on the schedule anytime soon I'm willing to bet anytime there is a chance to line these two teams up in a bowl game I would bank on it.

You didn't hear?   Brandon scheduled a home-and-home against both USC and Texas.  But both of UM's home games will be played at Soldier Field.
