landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
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.
St. Joseph (MI) St. Joseph DE Corey Malone-Hatcher is announcing his commitment on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. I expect this to be good news for Michigan.
He's a 247 Composite 4-star, the #17 WDE, #247 overall, and #6 in-state.
Looking at this dude's record... yikes. His Wake Forest teams got worse every year, before he randomly won the ACC (how) and then following that his teams kept on deteriorating again. I guess he has a rep of being a good guy with no scandals, but it seems to me like Baylor just basically hired Brady Hoke if Brady Hoke was at Michigan for like 14 years.
137 years ago today at White Stockings Park in Chicago, Michigan took on Racine in the first game in Michigan Football history.
Irving Pond scored the first TD in Michigan history, and captain David DeTarr scored the winning goal kick to give Michigan the 1-0 win.
TDs didn't count unless you made the goal kick.
The heat was oppressive, but despite the heat, about 500 students of Racine and citizens of Chicago witnessed, what we may call, the finest game of Rugby foot-ball ever played this side of the Alleghanies.**********A rest of ten minutes given the teams, during which Mr. Keeler and other graduates amused themselves with a few kicks, but they only succeeded in covering themselves not with glory, but with dirt. The second inning opened by a good kick-off by Captain DeTarr.**********In a short time a touch-down was made by our team and a kick was made by Captain DeTarr for the goal, which, according to the referee's deicision, missed ; but our umpire and the whole team and the spectators declared the goal was safely made ; however, we did not wish to dispute with the referee, yet, we must suggest, he is as liable to be mistaken as anyone else.
Captain David DeTarr
SIAP. My inexpert search of the Board didn't come across this. Apparently NFL.com (found via 247.com and CBS.com) recently named the 16 "most freakish" athletes for the upcoming 2016 collegiate football season. Jabrill came in sixth (listed as Athlete). No other B1G players were cited. Others of interest:
1. Myles Garrett, Texas A&M, DE
2. Adoree Jackson, Southern Cal, DB
3. Leonard Fournette, LSU, RB
14. Mike McGlinchey, Notre Dame, OL
Don't feel alone if name is not familiar to you. I only met him yesterday but not every day one runs into member of World Champs in any sport.
Was walking into my bank to verify balance after returning home for summer and upcoming football season. While getting the balance, I heard this man next to me say, "Yeah, played in one Super Bowl, would like to get back in the league to try for another." Well, of course this drew my attention and I looked over and he certainly looked the part. Was guessing if defense, had to be a lber (that's what he was) and if offense a real big RB.
Spoke for awhile outside the bank and he is an extremely nice young man. Almost military in his respect, "Yes Sir, No Sir, Thank you Sir, etc." Asked him about the Super Bowl comment I heard inside the bank, and he said, "Yes Sir, was with the Packers." He currently lives in Lansing, so guessing either he or wife has family in town(Muskegon). Said he played with Terrance Taylor. I couldn't fit those two together, but I guess "fringe" players are going to cross paths at some point, probably trying out for a team or two.
Googling the name once I returned home, realized he was a very lucky young man. Seems as though he only played one season in the league. Was signed by the 49ers, got cut after 5 games, later picked up by the Broncos. Got cut in Oct, picked up by Super Bowl champs a day later and finished the run with them. Was cut the following Aug. If you're going to spend one season in the NFL, why not do it as world champs?
From Cincinnati, he played for Hoke- prior to BH taking SDSU job- at BGSU where he was two time All MAC. Looks like he could still suit up today. Like I said, extremely nice, extroverted young man with genuine smile. Bowling Green should be proud of this one.
