THE ORIGINAL POST:
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.
#2 has interesting tape. #3 is sick of course.
A PSU Trustee named Albert Lord said the following about the victims of Sandusky: "Running out of sympathy for 35 yr old, so-called victims with 7 digit net worth," Lord said in an email sent on Saturday. "Do not understand why they were so prominent in trial".
To his credit, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees said: "Al Lord’s comments are personal and do not represent the opinions of the board or the university".
Even beyond how stupid his comment is on how the victims have been made whole by some money, this jackass suggests that their testimony wasn't needed in a trial about them being assaulted.
People on the blog didn't really need more reason to hate Penn State, but Al Lord added one more reason. Football won't make up for what happened, but there is something satisfying about PSU being embarassed on the football field (hopefully it'll happen again this year).
Since Jim Harbaugh took over, Michigan has made a big recruiting push in Georgia. That focus has Sims and other top Peach State prospects suddenly wondering about the Wolverines.
“When you see big-name players from here going to Michigan, everyone says, ‘Wait, we need to see what’s up and see what Michigan is about,’” Sims said.
Forgive the feeling-out process, this is all relatively new for both the Georgia prospects and the Wolverines. Harbaugh has three commitments from the state since taking over in Ann Arbor, and the first ones from there for the school since 2006.
And it’s easy to see that Georgia will be a big part of the strategy moving forward. Harbaugh and his staff have offered 27 Georgia recruits in the class of 2018.
Four-star defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon, No. 63 in the 2017 ESPN 300, has been the biggest prize so far.
Wayne Duke, who preceded Jim Delany as Big Ten Commissioner, died today.
From a Michigan perspective, Duke probably won't be remembered particularly fondly, given his role as at least the public face of the conference's '73 vote.
Obviously, Duke's tenure preceded the current era of both realignment and cut throat TV/digital rights negotiating, so it's more difficult to assess as anything beyond vague feelings, at least if you're like me and you were too young to be aware of such machinations at the time.
