This is maaaaybe premature there, ESPN. Maryland #1 FWIW.
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.
I apologize for the link from the Worldwide Leader, but the lead SEC cheerleader Paul Finebaum had an interesting take on Harbaugh ruffling feathers with the SEC, comparing the reaction of SEC coaches to Harbaugh's actions to the reactions of GOP candidates to Donald Trump. Of course he found a way to throw in some love for his beloved SEC:
"The SEC is at the vanguard of college athletics . . . The rest of the country is supposed to be reacting to the SEC, not the other way around. What has Jim Harbaugh done?"
This is my very first post, so please be gentle. But I ran across an ESPN article coming up with "predictions" for the next 25 Super Bowls. It's mostly cheap jokes, but the Super Bowl LXI and LXIX blurbs are quite enjoyable for us:
Super Bowl LXI Prediction: Los Jaguares del Mundo 35, Las Vegas Scorpions 9
"All-Pro defensive tackle Rashan Gary records three sacks and an interception to complement Bortles, who throws for 343 yards and three touchdowns."
I wholeheartedly believe this will happen, though for Rashan's sake, I hope he doesn't get roped into Jacksonville.
Super Bowl LXIX Prediction: New York Giants 34, New England Patriots 33
"Estimated viewership tops 5 billion for the first time, as half-brothers John Moynahan and Benjamin Brady square off for the first time as pros in a quarterback rivalry for the ages. Brady had outdueled Moynahan twice in college when they were the starters at Michigan and Ohio State, respectively. But this time, Brady is victimized by two key drops in the final minutes. Giants kicker Vivian Brady splits the uprights for the winning 55-yard field goal as time expires, then announces her engagement to New York Jets quarterback Marshall Manning."
I love the last one! Though young Ben faltered in the Super Bowl, he sent the bucknuts packing. On the other hand, this prediction means the nuts finally have a Super Bowl winning QB.....
EDIT: Mods, I was unaware this was alreday posted.....in that case...delete...<sigh>
Last year Harbaugh said that he wanted to extend his satellite camp tour to 2 weeks. In addition to some of the old sites like Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, and Dallas etc., I was wondering what new places you want Harbaugh to go to. I think he should hold one in Louisiana, and the Atlanta area due to the sheer number of prospects down there. Cleveland and Cincinnati should also be in there just for the schadenfreude factor. Thoughts?
A move that we have all been expecting for a while, there hadn't been much said about the current status until now. This from the Miami Herald:
Multiple sources have told the Miami Herald on Tuesday that Flanagan coach Devin Bush is on the verge of joining the staff at Michigan where three of his Falcons -- son and linebacker Devin Bush Jr. and safeties Devin Gil and Josh Metellus -- have signed. Bush Jr. has already enrolled at Michigan for the spring semester.
Another interesting tidbit:
One source said an announcement is expected sometime next week. Both sources said defensive coordinator Stanford Samuels would become Flanagan's next head coach.
Kill it dead.
(I swear I searched for links to this article and board posts about it, but just flat missed it. I'm a bad person, and I feel bad.)
[Double Edit - Seems to be turning into a posbang. In the spirit of the season, perhaps the mods should laissez le bon temps roulez.]
