and... i like them? I think I like them.
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.
Coach Nussmeier is starting to fill up his calendar with in-person throwing sessions of potential 2015 QB offerees. Here's what I've been able to dig up so far.
Zach Gentry - Eldorado - Albuguergue, NM Coach Nussmeier will be in to watch him throw next week. He told me he feels like an offer is coming if he performs well.
Nick Johns - Gonzaga - Washingont, DC Johns said that no plans have been made yet but his coach is supposed to talk to Coach Nuss soon.
Kyle Kearns - Foothill - Pleasanton, CA Coach Nuss has told Kyle that he is still finalizing dates.
Brian Lewerke - Pinnacle - Phoenix, AZ Coach Nuss is supposed watch him throw next week.
Alex Malzone - Brother Rice - Bloomfield Hills, MI Coach Nuss will watch Alex throw on April 28th.
David Sills - Eastern Christian Academy - Elkton, MD Sills' high school will host a college day on May 8th and he said that Coach Nuss has told him that he plans to be there.
Travis Waller - Servite - Anaheim, CA There have been no plans made yet but Travis plans to call Coach Nuss soon.
Brandon Wimbush - St. Peter's Prep - Jersey City, NJ Wimbush and Coach Nussmeier had an extended messaging conversation tonight and set up a throwing session for Thursday, April 24th. Coach Manning will accompany Coach Nuss.
There may be some other names that will surface soon according to what the coaches have evaluated. I've been told that other schools monitor who Michigan is recruiting closely so some things are purposely kept under wraps.
Here's the link in case I still haven't figured out how to embed.
EDIT: quickly pointed out that this should have been an OMG Shirtless post. I'm ashamed.

It's reported in a few places that redshirt freshman safety Jayme Thompson (Toledo) is leaving Ohio State. Bucknuts says he was thought to be behind Bell, Powell and Burrows. He was rated somewhere between 200 and 250 nationally by all four sites (Scout, Rivals, 247 and ESPN).
Ever wonder what football looks like from the linebacker's perspective? Well Miami (YTM), put a helmet cam on a linebacker for their spring game. Pretty cool (and terrifying) to see the action from this angle. It's obviously a bit choppy, but I'm actually surprised by the quality of the video. In the likely event my embed fails: LINK
