"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
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.
Has anyone heard who will be wearing Bennie Oosterbaan's #47 today? I have searched through old threads, with nothing mroe than guesses and personal opinions on who should be wearing it.
Just an fyi to everybody, the stadium bridge most of us walk across or have to drive across at some point on gameday is closed.
I haven't seen a thread about this, and seeing as how we're currently in 49th place I don't think there has been one.
College Gameday is having a contest to shoot a College Gameday commercial on a college campus this summer. The school with the most votes wins. Michigan is currently getting smoked and is in 49th place.
So yeah, go vote.
Another Gameday is upon us. Let us drink and be, well, drunk. Reminders:
- Michigan football plays at 3:30 today against Indiana. Known to the locals as the "Hoosiers," Indiana plays a 2-1-2 zone in addition to man coverage, and they shoot a high percentage from the field, based largely on their play from the big men inside. Michigan will need to get some good play from their point guards if they hope to pull the upset... wait, what's that you say? Football, eh? Oh. Never mind. Michigan by a lot.
- Ryder Cup play continues this morning. The United States leads 2.5 to 1.5 after the first set of matches. America, #1. Love it or leave it. Stanzi loves him some Ryder Cup play.
- Ohio State/Illinois and Minnesota/Northwestern (lol Minnesota) at noon, Wisconsin/Michigan State is your "hey, check the score of the other game during commercials" game at 3:30. Penn State/Iowa and Florida/Bama at 8:00.
