THE ORIGINAL POST:
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.
Found some interesting behind the scenes type footage of peppers looks like maybe a series. I have not seen it posted yet so here it is for people to enjoy in the off season
Per Jay Feely's Facebook, he's guest-hosting the Rich Eisen Show this week, and J. Ira and Nikki Harris Head Football Coach Jim Harbaugh (I believe you're familiar with his work) will be a guest tomorrow (Tuesday, March 28). Show airs from noon to 3 p.m. EST.
I can't listen to this live, so one of you needs to let us all know if any news comes out of this.
According to Jordan Strack, Jordan Kovacs is back at Michigan helping coach the Special Teams and Defense. Strack also mentions that it is a limited role. I'm not 100% sure of the guys credibility, but seems kinda legit, he does have the blue checkmark on twitter lol! I know we have a maximum number of coaches so not sure how it will work, but cool to see him get into coaching. Here are the tweets.
Jordan Kovacs tells me he has returned to Michigan. He's coaching special teams & defense for the Wolverines.— Jordan Strack (@JordanStrack) March 28, 2017
It's neither actually. It's a limited role as he breaks in to coaching. https://t.co/oL3moPc5Ht— Jordan Strack (@JordanStrack) March 28, 2017
The tweets are a flying that Mork D'Antoni will hold a press conference Tuesday morning. Looks like we may finally get some answers regarding the investigations up in EL.
Bill Connelly's 2017 preview of EMU is up today, in which he is cautiously optimistic, though he notes their schedule may be such that they may have a worse record with a better team. However, he included one note that's potentially important for Michigan, from his 2016 Eagles preview:
"If something big is going to happen, the odds are good that it will have happened by the end of a head coach's third year on the job.
Since 2006, 46 teams have improved by at least 14 adjusted points per game (per S&P+) from one year to the next. That's about four to five big leaps per season for the entire country. From this group of 46, 36 were led by coaches that were either in their first (10), second (13), or third (13) years.
Quite often, we don't see third-year magic coming.
If experience and depth are keys to the third-year jump, EMU will have a lot. The Eagles return their starting quarterback, an explosive sophomore running back, four of their top six receiving targets, and every offensive lineman, and they are loaded with juniors and seniors at every level of the defense."
