I got hit by a nose tackle that can kick.
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.
Spencer Hall has a column that is sort of the opposite of TWIS, called "Top Whatever." It's pretty amusing (http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2016/9/25/13043888/tennessee-volunteers-florida-gators-2016):
Here's his bit on Michigan, but the whole thing is worth reading, I think:
Ran for 326 yards on Penn State, beat PSU 49-10, and only seemed to be troubled by the psychological trauma of occasionally having to get hit by a giant kicker.
Michigan is: One of those teams where you can’t figure out how they beat teams so badly, just by looking at the box score. This is bad for everyone else, because it means UM’s a three-phase beast capable of staying in games even when one part misfires.
Oh, and that Colorado team they struggled with for a while last week? Upset Oregon in Eugene, 41-38. Jim Harbaugh’s teams are making other teams good by skin-to-skin contact, and their excellence is literally contagious. (Penn State by 30 next week over Minnesota, easy.)
I'm all for safety, but the targeting/ejection call/ruling on the PSU linebacker clearly reaching and going for the ball was one of the worst I've seen, this year anyway. Glad it didn't happen to us.
It was especially harsh for them given how pitifully thin they were already at LB. It's no wonder Michigan could keep calling the same running play over and over aagain.
Hopefully Michigan won't have anything that bad called against them this year. Can you imagine losing somebody important like a Jabrill Peppers in the OSU or playoff game to a call like that?
I hope that rule gets fixed (again).
For us long-suffering Tiger and Lions fans, it's a feast of frustration day. Tigers already down 2-0 to KC in the 1st inning. Lions down 7-3 to Green Bay. Green Bay is starting one of our favorite alumni, Jake Ryan, at MLB.
1. Can/will the Tigers make the playoffs? They are so prone to taking 2 steps forward, and 2 1/4 steps back, they are tough to watch.
2. The Lions have found new ways to lose games, last week being a great example. What makes it worse is that they'd won the week before vs. Indy, despite collapsing at the end and having lost that same type of game for 50+ straight years - giving us false hope they'd win last week. So can you even watch the Lions, and will they do anything good this year, or will they look like MgrowOld's Cleveland Browns?
Hope you are enjoying the last of the summer weather - cool and rainy for us Michiganders starting tonight.
I guess giving up 38 points to Duke is enough to get the axe
I don't know how often anyone watches the post game video hits beat writers do, but the shock and awe on display here, to me, is pretty telling.
