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.
A classic Big Ten football matchup coming to NYC! Consider the future created!
What grabbed me about this article was the picture. What does MLive choose to represent UM? A picture of two backup tight ends running wild through Florida.
It's a beautiful thing.
I guess I'll put the relevant ones for us down here: Michigan +/- 10 (the same as Alabama), Ohio State +/- 9.5, Michigan State +/- 7.5, Notre Dame +/- 9.5, Nebraska +/- 8.5, Iowa +/- 8.5.
(I included Nebraska and Iowa because they're the teams with the best odds to win the Big Ten West)
Yes there's already a post on the firing of the head coach at Baylor below, but I think this merits a separate topic as a sudden counter point of clarity to Penn State.
For the thousands of us who still seethe at Penn State's administration, coaches and vocal fanbase for mishandling, and subsequently defending the mishandling of the Sandusky atrocities, we can now just point to Baylor.
Years, if not decades ago, Penn State did not do as Baylor has done. Penn State did not decisively remind their community, fans and revered head coach that sports, winning and idolatry are nothing compared to preserving and protecting the rights, dignity and welfare of the young and vulnerable.
The facts may not all be in. Points of "apples to oranges" distinction abound and are aplenty. Perhaps Baylor's administrators had a few dirty secrets of their own, but for today at least, kudos to Baylor's administrators for doing a small part toward restoring our faith and perspective in what really matters in the world.
Oh, and eff Penn State.
