i refuse to even consider this a possibility
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.
...days until Donovan Warren and Brandon Minor watch Michigan beat Hawaii by many points.
Donovan played at Michigan from 2007 to 2009. He then decided to leave a year early only to not get drafted, even though the NFL's draft advisory board believed he'd be selected anywhere from round one to round three. Oops. Donovan signed a contract with the Jets, but was released in September of 2010. He also saw time with the Steelers, Lions, and Bears ("oh my"), but never panned out into a viable NFL cornerback.
Brandon was, simply put, a beast for Michigan (at least I think so). He wasn't the fastest, strongest, and certainly not the best running back in football, but the guy just worked really hard and played well fairly consistently. He split a lot of time with Sam McGuffie, Michael Shaw, and Carlos Brown, but at some point, Brandon beat Sam for the starting position in 2008. He, too, went undrafted, but signed a deal with the Bears, from which he was released in September of the same year. Brandon then saw time with the Saints, Colts, Packers, and Broncos.
EDIT: Oh, by the way....there is football next month.
Credit to kB father down, here is an article where he goes in depth on his reasoning.
Not sure if yardbarker is banned or not, but they posted an article where Franklin is quoted as saying:
" I'm in Chicago at a wedding of one of my former players and the most recent things (allegations that late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was told that Sandusky abused children in the 1970s) come up. I spend all Friday and Saturday on the phone talking to all of our players because other schools are contacting them and telling them the NCAA is going to get involved again and impose more sanctions… The people we’re competing with – Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame – this is just not something they have to deal with. Although we want to move on, those other schools are not letting us move on."
He goes on to say...
"Those programs as well as others know that and use that against us. We have that conversation with every single prospect. We don’t usually initiate it, but it’s coming from somewhere."
Does Harbaugh need to negatively recruit against PSU? No. Am I happy he does? Yes.
Here is to a thousand years of Penn State being trashed for allowing children to be raped on their campus by a football coach, and covering it up.
