the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
A couple weeks ago, I put together a google map with all of the Michigan bars I'm aware of (and also everything from the spreadsheet that bouje has been maintaining.) The map is here.
Hopefully this will prevent the "where's the Michigan bar in Pittsburgh/Fresno/Topeka/wherever" threads that pop up every week, but if your favorite gameday hangout isn't on here, put it in the thread and let me know. I'll do my best to keep the map up to date.
Didn't see this on the blog from yesterday...
Nice article (paywalled) by Chantel yesterday on Wyatt Shallman. He appears to be quite the character (and high character) and also comes from a "talented" family...

According to Sam Webb on Twitter Sr. LB Mike Jones is also leaving the football team. This follows on the heels of Jr. Safety Marvin Robinson leaving as well.
Dre Barthwell's tweet pretty much says it all...expect it to be official tomorrow. Best of luck to him.

So, if you're like me, this has been your thought process over the last few weeks:
"Whoa... the '14 recruiting class could be REALLY good."
"Wait... the '13 class was really good..."
"And the '12 class had a number of really good players who will MAYBE see the field as RS Freshmen this year..."
How are you dealing with the thought that these elite players you're thrilled to death about and are coming in awesome won't even see the field for 3 years for the most part? It's like... my brain cannot handle this.
Bob Stoops believes that the Hype machine for the SEC is overblown.
“So you’re listening to a lot of propaganda that gets fed out to you. You’re more than smart enough to figure it out. Again, you can look at the top two, three, four, five, six teams, and you can look at the bottom six, seven, eight, whatever they are. How well are they all doing?"
“What’d we [the Big 12] have, eight of 10 teams in bowl games this year? Again, you figure it all out.”
It seems that winning the last 7 National Championships is not domination
