“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
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.
Saw this in SaddestTailgateEver's lates Diary and thought it might be better on the MGoBoard.
Someone is trying to get 10,000 tshirts made for the students to wear at the PSU game. They've only given themselve 48 hours to raise $40,000 to get them all printed.
MLive spoke with Don Canham's widow and it's obvious she's not happy with what's happening at Michigan.
Recently, the widow of the “father of modern college athletics directors” has begun to add her voice to the chorus expressing concern that the powerhouse built by Canham is in jeopardy of losing its luster.
“I’m just devastated that his lifetime at the school—he was there for 50 years as a student, a coach and an athletic director—to see that his legacy is going down the drain, that’s what I’m angry about,” Margaret Canham-Keeley said.
It's worth a read to see that even Canham, who was an innovator his time, got some pushback but obviously ended up being a pioneer as an athletic director.
As many of you know, Brian was at the rally last night and was interviewed by a few local stations. I saw him on WILX, which I have linked below (can't embed). The Michigan segment starts at 4:30 (Brian is at 6:02).
In Ace's photo it looks like he was interviewed by Fox 47 as well, but I can't find video of that.
I'm re-posting this to keep it on the MGoBoard because I find it important, and for some reason it hasn't been pinned to the site banner yet. Maybe it will mean nothing, but this kind of stuff is all many of us have to express discontent and disgust with the leadership of the athletic department, especially for those who do not want to resort to boycotts for the players' sakes.
ALUMNI - you can sign it too. You don't even have to remember your unique name.
Follow the 'Login' link and click the 'Create a Login ID Now' on the left hand side, click 'create uniquname', and follow the instructions. I haven't used my umich login in 7 years, and it took me literally 87 seconds to recover it and reset a password. Just need your name, birthdate, year of first UM degree, and last four of your SSN. Theoretically it also allows you to create a login ID for those who were alumni before the advent of the uniquenames. Haven't tired it myself, but saw a '91 grad say they could sign.
