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.
Happy Friday, everyone!
My friend and I are a couple recent MLaw grads who were inspired by the recent discussions about the strength of Michigan's resume compared to other top-10 playoff contenders. We've thrown together a website that allows college football fans to do blind side-by-side resume comparisons among the current top-10 teams. The side-by-side comparisons utilize a variety of data and advanced statistics aimed at presenting a relatively detailed picture of each team's resume. You can then see your personalized ranking of the teams based on your blind selections, as well as broken-out results of who you selected in each head-to-head matchup.
Our hope is that the blind data will provide a (relatively) unbiased picture of how fans view the strength of each of these teams' resumes relative to its peers. If we're able to collect enough information to draw meaningful results, we are going to compile that information into an Elo ranking system and publish that data.
If you're interested in giving it a whirl, we would love to add your input to the collective pool. Any content feedback is also more than welcome. We're also still working out some kinks, so please forgive us for any technical glitches while we get it all sorted out.

Thanks, and Go Blue!
During the WTKA show this morning, the offensive line was brought up in a slightly negative way. I started to think back to when Michigan having a great offensive line was an afterthought, and was basically asumed before any given season started. So my question to the board is, what was the best offensive line you have seen during your time as Michigan fan?
Picture of Steve Hutchinson just for the hell of it:
For all people who are interested in Michigan memorabilia...
My friend pointed this auction out to me and I thought it was pretty interesting. It is Blake O'Neills Michigan football jersey from the 2015 season, which means that this was the jersey from the infamous MSU play.
It has no bids but I am curious to see if it does get one especially if any MSU fan would be willing to pay that much money to get something that was so memorable from the game. Curious, would anyone be willing to spend any money on a rival team's piece of memorabilia that was involved with some significant game or play in which the outcome favored Michigan? Or do you have any? Would love to hear if people do and if they display it or just keep it in storage and pull it out as conversation pieces.
I don't want to rehash any discussion regarding the spot, but I was wondering if it was possible to track the football as they do in soccer, hockey, or tennis. I came across this article that talked about tracking the football, which is particularly helpful in bad weather conditions or in situations like the spot.
I'm all for it but I wanted to put this out for discussion and if anyone could think of any reason why this would be a bad idea.
