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.
So they tell us the second day of Elite 11 Competition is more difficult: Instead of throwing in a vaccuum, QBs throw to non-elite WRs against a non-elite defense. The object is to make throws and score touchdowns.
Brandon Peters was 6/6 for two touchdowns. As a result, 247 ranks him 3rd out of all QB prospects based on day 2's performance. This ranking does not include day 1 performance, at which Peters was also solid.
"Quietly, Peters continues to be one of the most consistent performers in this Elite 11 group. There was never a doubt on any of his throws, he spun it well and put it on the money for every throw. Rarely do you see Peters throw a wobbler or skip a football."
ALL HAIL HARBAUGH. ALL HAIL HACKETT. ALL HAIL SCHLISSEL.
You could have three divisions in the WEST:
6. Oregon State
8. Washington State
2. Texas A&M
4. Oklahoma State
7. Texas Tech
10. Arizona State
1. Ohio State
3. Michigan State
5. Iowa State
And three divisions in the EAST
4. Ole Miss
5. Miss State
6. South Carolina
10. Kansas State
2. Florida State
5. Georgia Tech
7. Virginia Tech
8. North Carolina
9. North Carolina State
11. Wake Forest
1. Notre Dame
2. Penn State
4. West Virginia
5. Boston College
Two teams from each of the six divisions qualify for the 16-team playoff as well as four wildcard teams – two wildcards from the West and two from the East. Everyone's bottom line increases. Fans will eat it up so much they won't mind absorbing the increased costs for a College Football Channel as well as a DIRECTV type college football package or other games on pay-per-view.
What say you?
I'm not a big fan of this. It would basically eliminate conferences (history/tradition) and make college football NFL-lite.
Who else got theirs ?
I live in Louisville... For those who are trying to figure out when they will get theirs. EDIT:My fiancé now tells me it came in the mail yesterday. I was out of town.
I found this interesting footage from Ball State 1979 football season vs. Illinois State.
Brady Hoke is the starting LB for Ball State (home red) #55.
He was certainly in on a lot of tackles.
The game films were released without sound by Ball State University Libraries on Youtube, plus a 1978 season highlight film (10-1 year).
I really wish the University of Michigan would decide to release more historical football game films from 1969-1979, or even before that, including those that were not nationally televised. I'm sure the majority of those films have been digitized by now. I think UM football fans would enjoy viewing those games today, and it would provide some more national exposure to the history of Michigan's football program, particularly UM's dominance in the 1970s under Schembechler. There are only a handful of copies of football games from the 1970s available.
CBSsports is doing a draft preview of 2015 FBS football teams up until the season kickoff. UM was yesterday, Sparty today. I think we could see 2-3 others potentially get drafted on this list if they have outstanding years, probably not likely but hopeful. Sad state of affairs that we have only avergaged 3 picks over the last 5 years for a total of 15. In contrast didn't every starter on the '97 team make it to the league? I know this trend will change because, Harbaugh!
