I guess I’m in the minority that likes the selection for both AU and bama. I did want AU to get a shot at Michigan, but I’m satisfied with the Minnesota draw. Why?
First, all my bama friends have talked trash about Harbaugh for years (it’s probably justified to some degree) and I can’t wait to see him beat bama when all their NFL prospects sit the game out.
Second, I’m intrigued to see what Malzahn can do against Fleck. As mentioned earlier in this thread, many posters here wanted Fleck to replace Malzahn. Malzahn has already beaten Cristibol this year and now has a shot at Fleck. I believe those were the two top replacements for Malzahn’s job on this board.
Third, AU has never played Minnesota before, so that also has an intriguing aspect to the game as I didn’t want to see Wisconsin or Memphis (or really anyone we have played in last decade). I think Fleck will have his team ready to go and will give us a fight.
Hoping the AU players show some interest and for a great game, WDE!
