Michigan-Alabama Game In 2012 Not Official Yet

Although Nick Saban proclaimed last week that Michigan and Alabama were set to play in Dallas in 2012, the game has not been officially agreed to just yet, according to Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon.

"There have been a lot of discussions," Brandon said. "I've said that I am all for us occasionally playing on a big, prime-time stage and showing that we're not afraid to play anyone anywhere."

Every time something comes out about how the game is basically a done deal, someone else seemingly comes out and says nothing is official. Once again that has happened, although at this point the game appears to be all but official. All signs point to the game happening, and I'm sure Michigan and Alabama just want to announce it on their terms.
