Subway alums vs. truck drivers, who cares?  One of the rare occasions where I might actually pull for O$U.
 
If I were ND, I might have delayed this announcement until next week.  A good example of both schools being a little full of themselves.

Are you kidding, of course ND and OSU released this intentionally this week. Perfect opportunity for both to needle Michigan. BTW. ND has replaced Michigan with Texas and Ohio State. Michigan replaced ND with Virginia Tech and Washington. Feels like the Irish are winning this divorce.

The one that leaves usually is the winner. At least in the beginning.

How'd things work out for the Domers the last time they played the Bucknuts?

Two programs I couldn't care less about, so it makes sense for them to play each other. If only they could somehow include Sparty in some sort of triangle game, the sh!thead trifecta would be complete.

I cant help but feel that our program has become a joke on the national stage and this type of scheduling (whether meant to offend or not) is a result of our recent decline.

We have beaten then 4 of the last 5. If you are a "joke" of a program then why haven't they been able to beat us on a consistent bases?

Nationally, Michigan is a joke.  See below exhibits:
1. Hasn't sniffed a conference, let alone, a national championship in so long that most of our current roster were watching Teletubbies and Sesame Street not football on TV. 
2. Watch the B1G Network, just about every "greatest games" played results in a Michigan loss.
3. Lost to a FCS (1-AA) football team and ESPN loves to remind the world of that cataclysmic loss.
4. Finished last season and started this season unranked, yet again.
5. Walk in any major American city like I have the last few years, you very rarely see Michigan apparel on people but through those same streets you see OSU, ND, UT, Bama, FSU, UF, USC, Oregon, Oklahoma, and Miami enough to make a guy wanna puke.
6. OSU, MSU, Nebraska, ND, and Wisconsin consistently finish with better records and higher in the polls than Michigan.  For those not paying attention that makes Michigan 5th in a weak major conference. 
7. Did I mention Michigan lost to Appalachian freaking State.....
 
Shall I go on?
 
GO BLUE!

It has been 10 years since we won a conference title (and it was shared), and in those 10 years......
  • we have gone 1-9 against our biggest rival (lone win came against a sub .500 pOSU)
  • we have gone 2-6 in bowl games
  • we have finished outside the top 25 (coaches poll) 6 times (2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013)
  • we have gone 5-5 against MSU whom we out recruit badly on a yearly basis
  • lost to App State and Toledo. Needed a goal line stand to beat an Akron team that had won a total of 7 games vs. FBS competition in the last 5 seasons.

They made a National Championship run within the last 5 years.  What else do they need to do?
 
Look I hate Notre Dame just as much as the next guy but lets face it, they are Notre Dame, and given the chance sports media falls back in love with em and annoints them as soon as they do something news worthy on the field.  Beat OSU thats news worthy and all of a sudden they are nationally relevant that year.  Beat Michigan and they might move up a spot or two if they are lucky.

In comparison
Michigan's record last 10 seasons, bowl record, and record vs. biggest rival
77-49
2-6
1-9
Notre Dame's record last 10 season, bowl record, and vs. biggest rival
78-48
3-5
3-7
 
We are ND...except we hold a slight edge against them (6-4)

I wouldn't go that far. They have a better overall record the last 10 seasons, played for a national title, have a better bowl record, and have a better record against their biggest rival (USC) than we do ours.

"Our team is a joke" is perhaps the dumbest expression in all of sports, and it makes zero sense. "Must win" is another.

In any event Michigan is still on national TV, still is a marquee game when we travel to other schools, and the bowls trip over themselves trying to give us an invite to play.

Sorry if I don't buy into this "we are a joke" thing.

Back to the topic I honestly wish the Big Ten as a whole would refuse to schedule ND.

Never going to happen because they are considered a "marquee" name, teams around the country will crawl all over each other to play them.

I wouldnt count Navy as a quality match up either, but ND seems that its an important game to them.  And what about this supposed rivalry with Purdue....geez, how long has it been since Purdue has been relevant on the national stage.

I love Brandon's comments. 
“Neither team needs the other. We’re not having trouble scheduling big-time opponents that historically we haven’t been able to play. We don’t need Notre Dame and they obviously they don’t need us."

From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140904/SPORTS0201/309040127#ixzz3CRu7jeLr
 
Really Dave?  I guess your definition of "big time" opponents and everybody else's isn't in the same zip code.  We need ND a lot more than they need us right now, considering we're playing HS teams for a non-conference schedule. What a buffoon.

I thought we had some big games scheduled in the future, do we not?  You don't need 4 non conference games vs top 10 teams every year.

'way back in the thread, it was noted that the announcement of an ND/O$U series was an ideal opportunity to needle Michigan.  True, but WHY would ND like to needle a team that's already furious about the way the series was ended just a couple of days before having to play them?  Talk about bulletin board material...
 
Maybe they have bought in to the "Michigan is a joke" theory- even so, it's a pretty stupid way to go.  I hope their supreme confidence last until they are down about three scores tomorrow night...
