BC guys evaluate Bates's tenure positively.
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.
The site says live streaming video, but I'm not getting it.
EDIT: Updated with non-microscopic font. (H/T to Maize and Brew for getting it up)
As the leader of our university community, I want to express my extreme disappointment in the events surrounding the handling of an on-field injury to one of our football players, Shane Morris. The health and safety of our entire student community, including all of our student-athletes, is my most important responsibility as university president.
I have been in regular discussion regarding this incident and its aftermath with Athletic Director David Brandon and the Board of Regents. I support the immediate protocol changes that the department's initial assessment has identified. I have instructed the Athletic Department to provide me, the Board of Regents, and other campus leaders with a thorough review of our in-game player safety procedures, particularly those involving head injuries, and will involve experts from the University of Michigan Health System in assessing its medical aspects.
Despite having one of the finest levels of team medical expertise in the country, our system failed on Saturday. We did not get this right and for this I apologize to Shane, his family, his teammates, and the entire Michigan family. It is a critical lesson to us about how vigilant and disciplined we must always be to ensure student-athlete safety. As president, I will take all necessary steps to make sure that occurs and to enforce the necessary accountability for our success in this regard.
Our communications going forward will be direct, transparent and timely. The University of Michigan stands for the highest level of excellence in everything we do, on and off the field. That standard will guide my review of this situation and all the University's future actions.
My thanks go to the many members of the University community who have taken the time to express their thoughts.
Great news! OTL is about the general shitshow that is Michigan football, the athletic department and Shane's concussion. We warrant an entire episode apparently. Airing now on ESPN2 (530pm EST)
I'm re-posting this to keep it on the MGoBoard because I find it important, and for some reason it hasn't been pinned to the site banner yet. Maybe it will mean nothing, but this kind of stuff is all many of us have to express discontent and disgust with the leadership of the athletic department, especially for those who do not want to resort to boycotts for the players' sakes.
ALUMNI - you can sign it too. You don't even have to remember your unique name.
Follow the 'Login' link and click the 'Create a Login ID Now' on the left hand side, click 'create uniquname', and follow the instructions. I haven't used my umich login in 7 years, and it took me literally 87 seconds to recover it and reset a password. Just need your name, birthdate, year of first UM degree, and last four of your SSN. Theoretically it also allows you to create a login ID for those who were alumni before the advent of the uniquenames. Haven't tired it myself, but saw a '91 grad say they could sign.
MGoBlog getting all this publicity is no consolation for this new rendition of horror, but take it for what it's worth.
Article bit: "suggests that the department tried to force Michigan’s medical staff to lie or obfuscate about its diagnosis," as per Brian's post this morning.
Hell, Brian for Guvna...
