i like 'em both
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.
The WD equipment update with a special edition.
Since 2010 Michigan has been wearing pink gear for breast cancer awareness month.
This year they will be wearing gloves, wristbands AND their socks will feature pink for the first time ever.
In other equipment news, the UTL III gloves are up for sale now.

Just curious (sending the bat signal out to Wolverine Devotee if no one else knows) when was the last time we were a big underdog and pulled a "major" upset? I don't mean -4 or -7 type of line but say -10 to-12+. I know we were rarely in a position to be such underdogs but are we talking the late 60s? Or has there been some game along the line I've forgotten where people gave us no chance and were flat wrong. Outside of the obvious first Bo OSU game.
Along those lines I wonder between say 1970 and 2007 how many times we've been underdogs by 10+ points in any game, anywhere, anytime. I know 2008 forward it has happened relatively often but in the Bo/Mo/Lloyd era - not much after Bo's first team I imagine. Probably that 6-6 team vs BYU in the 86 bowl? Maybe one of the Rose Bowls along the way? One of those undefeated or 1 loss John Cooper teams? Even a game like Oregon 2007 I doubt we were -10, heck we may have been favored since we were at home. FSU 91? I imagine it was less than a half a dozen times in those ~40 years.
Both of them at the same time? It's rough having to eat getting trounced by TCU that way.
See link for exact language:
The gist is that it would take too long to fire Brandon, bring in a new AD, and then hire a new football coach. So if we want a chance Harbaugh next season, we should want Brandon to remain AD at least through the football coach hiring process.
