Michigan pulls out of UA Series
« on: July 07, 2016, 11:31:00 am »
Michigan has pulled out of the home and home series slated for 2018-2019 against the Razorbacks.  As a result, Michigan will pay the UofA $2 million.  Wonder what is behind this decision?

I believe it has something to do with the renewal of the Michigan/Notre Dame rivalry in 2018

I believe it's the fact that Harbaugh sucks

They wanted to renew their series with ND, simple as that.

And that makes sense...I had only received the notice about the cancellation at the time I made the post.  Only after that did I find out about the renewal of the ND series.

This was a no brainer for Michigan.... It was bad it had to happen the way it did. Why ever leave the Notre Dame series to begin with?

I think ND stopped it due to other scheduling needs, looks like they corrected those.

What teams are open for that game?

I overheard Stanford. Which would be a cool home and home.

I had forgotten ND has the five game contract with the ACC. How hard would it be for them to play 3 more and just join the conference? It is Notre Dame we are talking about though so.....

I hated to hear that the games have been cancelled. I like to see schools from power 5 conferences schedule each other home and home. I thought it was great that Arkansas scheduled _ichigan. I hope they can find a suitable replacement instead of just another cupcake.

Hopefully, we can find another Power 5 school to replace Michigan with.  If so, here are our current options:

Boston College, Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Miami (FL), North Carolina, Pittsburgh, TCU (already play them in 2016 and 2017), West Virginia, Michigan State, Northwestern.

Surely we could work out a home-and-home with one of those teams.

Well, it was the opening game for both of those seasons, so it might not be as simple as it would appear. I haven't checked any of those, do any of them already have a home and home with another P5?

I'd like to see them square off once. But it will never happen, according to both head coaches

You play money games for money, the AD has stated and proven that numerous times. Other's are willing to play more, so it's a moot, and mute point.

no, no, no. Not Ricepig. AD. Skeerd of no win situation. Small nads. Instead of being sure a mud hole would be stomped, concerned of smallest of chances Astate might win so the game doesn't get scheduled. Small nads. Bert too.

I'm in the "it doesn't matter to me camp". I've got no problem if they do or don't play it, we've both survived without it. I do think we should for sure play baseball against ASU and UCA, for travel and better RPI games, probably some other minor sports, too.

Bert trolls Xichigan. Pretty funny. The writer comments about the B1G, sec bowl tie ins as maybe an opportunity for Arkansas to put it to Harbaugh. I don't think they'll be matching up in bowls any time soon.

No doubt about that. I hated to see it called off in the first place, but I'm also one of those that hates to see nearly any big, historic rivalry end. I understand the desire to put new blood on the schedule, but at what cost?

Too bad Arkansas doesn't play in-state teams.  UAPB beat, Arkansas next opponent Alcorn St, last week.  Michigan's $2 million buy-out could be dropped right in Pine Bluff, AR..

Why would Arkansas want to over pay for a FCS team?

We are already good at that.... We already do love the FCS teams. Look at next year too! Florida A&M and Coastal Carolina is a joke. Throw in New Mexico State who might as well be FCS.

Uh, paying someone $450,000(FCS pay) is not the same as paying someone Costal Carolina is moving to FBS and the Sun Belt next year, and I promise you, if we were to go undefeated, we'd make the playoffs with that schedule. And no, I'm not predicting that at all, lol.
