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.
You'll all remember Tyran Steward, the U-M history professor who was invited to take part in the Signing of the Stars (he appeared with Brad Keselowski). Professor Steward was cited by Rashan Gary's mom as being one of the main reasons Rashan fell in love with U-M.
Well, it appears Professor Steward has an interesting new position with the football department. It's listed on his LinkedIn page that he's the new "Assistant Director of Football Operations and Player Engagement" at U-M.
I don't know what this new position means, but I like that Professor Steward is the one who's filling in. In addition to landing us Rashan, the dude knows his U-M football history. He wrote his master's thesis on Willis Ward and the 1934 Michigan-Georgia Tech game, and he was featured prominently in the excellent documentary about it, "Black and Blue." Trailer:
Anyone know what this new position is all about? I love that we have a history professor filling it.
The PSU cultists will still defend him.
A new bombshell dropped in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal Thursday.It came in the form of a line in a court order on a related insurance coverage case involving Penn State, and its ramifications can't immediately be gauged.But that line was eye-popping in itself.The line in question states that one of Penn State's insurers has claimed "in 1976, a child allegedly reported to PSU's Head Coach Joseph Paterno that he (the child) was sexually molested by Sandusky."
4* Athlete Bruce Judson says he decommitted because during an encounter with Urban Meyer, the Ohio State Coach asked him who he was. "I didn't get any love from coach Meyer" Judson said in an interview with SEC Country. During a tour, Meyer repordetely recognized a different recruit but not him. The other recruit corroborated Judson's story, but gave an account where it could have been a joke because Judson was wearing a dark blue shirt.
Rivals put together a list of all the camps announced so far. I must say it is really impressive and our coach truly must be a jackhammer.
