The Wolverine recently caught up with Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon, and although the content of that conversation is in a premium story, I think the headline says it all.
Brandon: Exciting news is coming
With all of this talk about future schedules and Alabama, it would be hard to believe if Brandon is talking about anything but the rumored game in 2012.
As speculated in the previous update to this StoryStream, all signs point to an announcement being made soon, so I would bet that exciting news involves Michigan and Alabama and the rumored neutral-site game in 2012. Nothing is guaranteed until the contract is finalized, of course, but it seems like it's on the path to being made official.
