Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
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.
Is anyone else having a tough time concentrating on the threads and posts? I understand the need to generate revenue and please know this is hardly a complaint however for the first time my wife went Mrs. Stephen R Kass and took notice of the blog...http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/simgad/9769656891141381534

Slow day got me to thinking about the aftermath of the 1997 National Championship season.
I was an undecided LSA sophomore that glorious year and my memories of most of the games are vivid, but much less vivid are my memories of the "official" celebration when students returned to campus. Quite frankly, the night of the rally at Crisler I remember being so blitzed on Aftershock (yes, I know, not very masculine of me....but I WAS just a sophomore and the rock candy in the bottle was pretty damn good) that my ONLY memory of the actual event was walking there with a group of my buddies and being incredulous that a guy was selling unofficial national championship tee-shirts at the corner of Hoover and Greene for the price of 3 shirts for 5 dollars. "How could that man have been turning a profit", I asked....nobody answered.
From that point on I think I was awake but incoherent. Anyone have any memories from the rally to help allow me to patch in that gap in my fanhood?
The online sources are fairly weak:
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.
