Wisconsin is an excellent opener. I'll be there.
I wonder what other teams were considered. Did Michigan not want any more of Alabama?
To the earlier poster, Texas will be good in 3 years, with or without Mac Brown. I heard on the radio this morning (Bill King) that if Texas loses to Oklahoma in the upcoming season, Mac is out. Texas is a sleeping giant and scares me more than any other program. IMO, Texas should win the NC once every four or five years with their money and recruiting base.
