in town for free camps
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.
In the age of neutral site games, Florida State has decided to one-up everyone else and have their Spring Game at a neutral site:
“The short term construction challenges of building the Champions Club in Doak Campbell stadium have provided a unique opportunity for our 2016 spring football game,” said Wilcox. “We are pleased to offer our fans greater access to Florida State football at an exciting and refurbished venue in one of the best destinations cities in the world. Moving the game to Orlando and partnering with Steve Hogan and his staff at Florida Citrus Sports will allow us to platform the game and Florida State athletics in exciting and unique new ways.”
If I remember correctly, during renovations to the Big House, Michigan elected to have their Spring Game across the street at
Pioneer (ed: Saline)and close it to the public. I like the idea of instead having it in a location central within the state, giving fans who might not want to drive the 6 hours from Miami an opportunity to attend.
Elite 11 Day One is in the books, and there are a couple of quick previews out there. Brandon Peters seems to have performed quite well, with only a few small criticisms of the speed of his drop and a slow start keeping him from the top.
OregonLive has him as an Honorable Mention:
247 gives him his own category, has pretty high praise:
Scout's got him in the top group, really liked him today:
Was one of the most consistent passers all morning. Was just hot from the get-go on day one. Looked athletic and threw the ball with very little effort. The Michigan commit really dropped the ball into the basket for receivers and it looks like the Wolverines have a lot to be excited about.
There is a 247 thread with updates throughout the day, gives a lot of the same info. summarized above. It's most entertaining for the Sparty poster kicking rocks in the corner and wondering why no one's talking about his QB. DeWeaver is finally mentioned.
Not sure what he did but I saw it on the feed during the Cubs Cards game:
I couldn't find this ANYWHERE online, though I'm sure it probably exists somewhere - as such, I downloaded the episode and chopped it out myself for your education.
