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.
I’d much rather face Nebraska than Wisconsin if we manage to beat Ohio State and make it to the Big Ten Championship Game. S&P+ gives Nebraska a mode of 7 wins and Wisconsin a mode of 6, but damn the statistics it still looks to me like we’re going to have to play Wisconsin again.
To get Nebraska instead of Wisconsin in the championship game:
A. If Nebraska wins the head-to-head on Oct 29, they’ve won the West (unless they lose all four remaining games—@Ohio State, Maryland, Minnesota, @Iowa—and Wisconsin wins out). But S&P+ only gives Nebraska a 33.6% chance of beating Wisconsin.
B. If Wisconsin wins the head-to-head and all its other games, Nebraska has to win out—including Ohio State on Oct 29. Wisconsin is a 2:1 favorite or better in each of its remaining games; Nebraska only has a 14.3% chance of beating Ohio State and only a 1.5% chance of winning out.
C. If Wisconsin wins the head-to-head and Nebraska loses to Ohio State, then Wisconsin would have to lose at least one more game. The greatest chance is Oct 22 @Iowa (34.5% chance of losing), next greatest vs. Minnesota Nov 26 (24.1% chance).
Looks to me like the most likely thing is that Wisconsin wins the head-to-head on Oct 29 pretty easily and wins out, Nebraska loses to both Wisconsin and Ohio State, and Wisconsin goes to the championship game for a rematch with either Michigan or Ohio State.
Ohio State needs to lose 2 of these to make the Game irrelevant in determining the Big Ten Champion:
@Penn State 10/22 (25.6%), Northwestern 10/29 (3.5%), Nebraska 11/05 (14.3%), @Maryland 11/12 (7.7%), @MSU 11/19 (4.8%)
Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick today says Kelly will be coming back next year and formally surrenders the best winning percentage in college football to Michigan forever.*
Good to know that Notre Dame will have to delay cleaning up from the tire fire until the year we play there.
*He didn't actually say this, but it was implied.
Hey guys. Back with another video - this time it's for 4-star Michigan DE commit Corey Malone-Hatcher. This was made in collaboration with Coach Malone himself (Corey's dad). Hope you enjoy!
Get ready for a cool fall day in the mitten state! We'll be sandwiched between systems to the east and west, but luckily we also have a high pressure system to the south. This will help to keep us dry throughout the day, although it will be chilly! Highs will be below normal and we'll have a brisk NW wind, so it's a good day for lots of layers. Grab the heavy sweatshirt, hold on to your hats, and get ready to come home for a win!
Woooeee you'll want that hot coffee in the morning if you're running to the store to grab that last crockpot ingredient! Mid 30s and patchy frost to begin our weekend! We'll have sunshine to start the day, but don't expect it to help a whole lot in warming us up. Add in NW winds around 10mph (leaves are in constant motion), and it'll feel a little cooler. Tie down the tent and have a rock to put on the napkin pile! Upper 30s for the mid-morning will turn to mid 40s by lunchtime. We'll still have plenty of sun with some clouds, but winds will have started to pick up. Expect a steady NW wind around 15mph (small branches sway, loose papers in the diag blow about) with some gusts popping into the 20s (small trees sway). Don't be surprised if there are some gusts up around 30mph, which can topple empty trash cans, as we edge closer to game time.
52 degrees for 3:30! Some clouds will hang out for the start of the game, but we'll still have some sun too. And we keep that wind! NW winds will be up to 17mph, gusting into the mid 20s (this is a good breeze - if it was raining it'd be hard to use an umbrella).
Not much change at all as we head through the middle of the game. It'll still be breezy and cool - temps holding at 52. There'll be a mix of sun and clouds with those NW winds still up at 17mph, gusting into the 20s entering the 3rd quarter. The good news is, you'll start to notice the winds lighten as we get closer to the end of the game.
Walking out of those gates -win in hand- you'll want to get a warm dinner! Mid 40s to end the game with some clouds. Although we'll have gotten rid of the gusts, winds will still be around 10mph - just enough to give us a wind chill in the low 40s. Partly cloudy skies will carry us through the rest of the night, helping temps to continue to drop. If you're planning on staying out late, last call will feature low 40s (feeling like the upper 30s) and NW winds staying around 7-8mph. It's a good night to keep ahold of that heavy sweatshirt! Let's go blue!

Just saw on Twitter that Drew Sharp died this morning. Pretty crazy, he was fairly young.
Edit: Freep link warning, but it's the only site with an article up so far:
"Drew Sharp, a Detroit Free Press columnist since 1999, died this morning at his home in Bloomfield Hills. He was 56."
