...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
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.
Per the Detroit News (LINK), Brandon Pettigrew is expected to sign a 4 year $16M dollar deal. Signing Pettigrew was a priority going into free agency, so I'm thinking this is a good development for the Lions. Megatron, Pettigrew, Tate and Bush give Stafford a lot of good weapons.
www.draftdaythemovie.com starring Kevin Costner.is a movie about the NFL Draft. I've watched the draft every year since 88 and I'm not going to watch this movie. Though if Costner were the GM of the Lions I would watch it. Fictional GM.of the Lions. I couldn't watch Costner playing Matt Millen.
Great news: according to the Detroit News, Jake Butt is predicted to be back by the 3rd or 4th game of the season. This would put him in play for Big 10 games, and could make a huge difference by the end of the season.
We are a bit thin in depth at the TE position. Having Butt back will give the offense a lot more in the way of options. Having others play in the first 3 - 4 games gives them game experience before the Big 10. I wonder if this will be the precursor to more 2 TE sets?
Per Pro Football Talk. Ihedigbo had somewhat of a break out year last year with the Ravens with 101 takles 2FF and 3 INT. He also played under Lions new DC Teryl Austin while with the Ravens. Good replacement for Delmas IMO.
