Like today, when Brian corrected me re: a potential Michigan-Texas matchup down the line. Turns out I had the dates wrong. Michigan is free in 2012 and 2013, which removes the UCLA obstacle from Texas' side of the equation.
With these new target dates on the table, I'll file away the quiet resignation for now and note my strong support for a two-year series with the Wolverines.
I'm half-tempted to start a letter writing campaign. What a terrific, terrific series that would be for Longhorn fans.
