I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
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.
Jay Harbaugh's story about his dad using Gatorade with breakfast cereal, presented with a lack of milk that day, led to the UM Alumni Association creating the Jim Harbaugh Breakfast Challenge -- getting students to video themselves doing the same thing.
It's now reached Mike and Mike. Greenie challenged Golic to do it, and of course when it comes to stupid food challenges, Golic is all over it.
He'll be eating Froot Loops with Blue gatorade this morning.
Fitzgerald has been sending out personalized videos to season ticket holders in an effort to boost renewals after a disappointing season, and the Chicago Tribune provides a couple script examples:
Hi, YOUR NAME, this is Pat Fitzgerald, your head football coach here at Northwestern. This upcoming week, we’ll add a terrific group of young men to our football family with our recruiting class. Speaking of family, thank you for being a season-ticket holder. YOUR NAME, we need you now to step up again and renew those season tickets to give us the best home-field advantage in Big Ten football. I know you’re gonna be out there cheering us on loud and wearing your purple all season long. NAME, let’s go beat Stanford. Go Cats!
Others get this message:
I really want to challenge you to come out to support the Wildcats as we move forward to getting back to a championship level ... you’re part of the solution. We need you to continue to be a season ticket-holder and find a friend or two -- or 20! -- to be season-ticket holders, too.
All 10,000 season ticket accounts will be getting a message, phone call or letter from one of Northwestern's coaches.
Harbaugh is everywhere. After visiting California yesterday it appears Jim made the trip up to Washington to begin laying the groundwork for a potential flip of GA commit Jacob Eason. Eason is the #1 pro style QB in 2016 per 247 Composite; GA changed OCs (Bobo left for CSU) so we'll see if that hurts their relationship. ND and Bama are other key suitors. Looks like Nuss had some contact on behalf of UM earlier so he should at least be vaguely familiar with UM. (Looks like Nuss offered last year, same month as Costello)
2016 should be very interesting.
As do we. As do we.
Didn't see on the board and damnit I'm tired of hearing about air in the football.
