in town for free camps
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.
He got a second opinion, decided to continue to play football and transferred to Stanford where ultimately he had an episode related to his condition and had to retire from football. Fortunately, the story ends well; he recovered and eventually got his degree from Stanford in Economics.
The story does bring up some interesting points for consideration:
- Stanford has/had a very good medical staff, so opinions on whether a kid can stll safely play can diffier even among highly qualified health professionals;
- There are players (college and NFL) who have successfully played with this condition; the same likely also applies to joint arthritis/damage, concussions etc; it's a matter of how much risk the team/player is willing to accept;
- Any protocol for determining fitness to continue playing would by nature be subjective, and medical ethics aside, could potentially be abused by programs;
- 18-21 year old kids aren't renowned for their ability to assess the long term implications of their decisions and actions.
So, my non double blind experiment observations on this are as follows: If the team medical staff makes a recommendation that the player not suit up again, there's likely a 5 sigma probability the football staff will follow suit; the legal , image and liability implications are way too high. If it's the football staff making the recommendation without official endorsement from the medical staff, there is muddy water.
A recruiting rundown on most (all) participants at The Opening next week. A lot of it is stuff we know, and there's not a whole lot of in-depth on there, but it did scratch the recruiting news itch. And it's free:
Tickets for the Pan Am Games in Toronto are 25% off until 9pm on Thursday, July 02. For anyone thinking about driving over to Toronto for any of the action, this takes the $ edge off. We bought tix today for the Men's Gymnastics Team Medal Round and are excited to see UM's Sam Mikulak perform. Men's Basketball is sold out (prelims and medal rounds) but there are still women's bb tix available and both men's and women's Soccer tix are available. Golf is at Angus Glen GC where Tiger Woods won the Canadian Open on the south course and Jim Furyk won on the North Course. They still need a few caddies and you get paid $75/day to loop.

GO BLUE - see you in AA for BYU this fall!
That didn't take too long.
In my experience of participating in interviews, I've found it takes 2 to produce a clunker! I'll take 50% responsibility 4 this clunker.— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) July 1, 2015
