Thumbs up Mich v ND Discussion. In memory of and to honor Clashmore Mike

This is probably going to be a hot subject for a while.

I wish Michigan would have kept ND waiting longer, .. but oh well.

Tough schedule in odd years.. at MSU, at OSU, at ND. I wish Manuel could have at least got the first one back in AA.

I hate it. It's stupid. ND needs the game far more than us. We're bending over backward to appease them. I'd rather play home and homes with other P5 schools like we had set up with Arkansas. It screws up our schedule. And I hate ND. Other than that, I hate it.

Well, osu will whip their sorry asses these next two seasons. They will be happy to drop the schmucks off their schedule...until the final gun of the M game.

HARBAUGH!!!

I don't like it --- having ND, O-state, and Sparty on the road in the same year is stupid.

ND should pay the $2 million, they backed out like cowards after the last home game, and get the first home game of the series. Michigan should have demanded the first two games to be in Ann Arbor. ND needs this more then Michigan does. ND wanted into the ACC and not the big ten. This will add to an already unbalanced home and away schedule. Not to mention the last game was at ND and the next is at ND? Michigan will play home games in odd yrs against MSU, OSU, and now ND. The cancellation of the Arkansas was the only marquee home game in 2018.

Well, other than Nebraska, Penn State, and Wisconsin... Arkansas was the marquee home game of 2018. I'd still much rather play a home and home with them than ND, however.

Though I think its good for college football, this is the first time I'm disappointed since the Harbaugh hire and the entire the athletic department leadership team (besides no night games). I guess the leprechauns dictate to us, not the other way around.

Kelly has said all along, this was going to be extremely difficult to schedule anytime soon.

They got it done.

I m glad it's back, season doesn't seem right without ND on the horizon.

By the time that game rolls around, HARBAUGH!!! Will be well on his way of establishing a dynasty.

Kelley and his leprechauns will be sorry they did this.

Yeah, I hate ND as much as anyone here but JH thrives on shit like this. Bring it on.

I retitled the thread lines. Old news now and I wanted to pay tribute to Clashmore Mike.

I was driving down to Indy when my wife told me about this. You must have been in the back seat taking dictation.

ND will get exposure to the Brandon Peters or Dylan McCaffrey teams early on.

Can't wait! So happy this series is restarting.

Shout out to Jeff for changing the thread title. Mike was one of the good guys. I think we all miss his contributions here

In the end, Notre Dame is a bigger name. This will be a huge national game. A home and home with Arkie isn't as valuable, PR wise.

Ideally, you keep Arkie AND add ND, but money has to be made, and you can't fill your non-cons with home and homes.

Good move by M.
