M Go Blog is reporting that Michigan and Alabama are in the final stages of a contract to play a game at Cowboy stadium in Dallas in 2012.
Initially this struck me as nothing more than a rumor as Michigan NEVER plays a neutral site game, let alone south of the Mason-Dixon line. Add to that, most college stadiums can’t produce the kind of revenue necessary for Michigan to give up a home date under any circumstances.
However Jerry Jones stadium can hold almost 100,000 and could easily allow Cowboy owner Jerry Jones to overpay to get these two college football powers on the gridiron.
If Jerry wants it to happen, it will happen! I’d pencil this game in for sometime in early September 2010.
