I did not make this headline up
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.
Just read this over at the great MVictors site.
- Nothing is official, but U-M is indeed evaluating the Legends program and considering changes.
- The evaluation is being driven, in part, by feedback from the players.
- McCready’s understanding is that they do intend to maintain the Legends distinction, but are considering honoring those players in a different way.
- All options are on the table including a presence in the stadium to recognize the Legends.
- Hackett is soliciting input from the Legends/families and has already connected with one other Legend/family. Hackett will be talking with all the Legends families and keeping everyone in the loop as this moves forward.
- Timeline is TBD, but McCready’s understanding is that they plan to settle this before the season starts.
I say do something with the blank canvas that is the box. Put national championship years and the Legends numbers up there and be done with it.
With an enthusiasm unknown to mankind Webb has apparently reported Harbaugh will be running 6 satellite camps - I believe the ones in Houston, Tampa and California are new info? I thought these camps would be 2-3 days but apparently they are all 1 day variety. Just about every day from June 5-Jun 10 the staff will be in a new corner of the woods.
Michigan will be at a satellite camp in Prattville, Alabama on June 5 and Dallas on June 9. Per Scout.com's Sam Webb, Michigan will also be at satellite camps in Tampa, Florida (June 6), Houston (June 8) and California (June 10).
Article talks about Harbaugh, Meyer, Saban, and others.
In just about all coaches' contracts nowadays, it's standard for them to receive use of dealer automobiles, country club memberships and tickets (usually including a suite) to all home football games. Some even get the use of a private plane for so many hours per year for personal use.
Got an email in my inbox this morning asking for an RSVP to the spring game, along with a quick survey (basically how many people are you bringing).
- Gates open at 10AM
- Game will be on BTN, BTN2Go, and radio on 97.1 (I would assume 1050 as well) in SE Michigan. Which, you have no excuse not to be in Ann Arbor. If you'd rather listen from aways away one of their websites or mgoblue.com will have it.
- There will be prize giveaways per the email I got, I would assume suggested donations would have some free swag associated with it as well, as in the past.
Less than a week away and I can't wait to see what the team looks like!
Edit: assume everyone knows this but admission is free.
One of my friends was at the MHSFCA Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday night. I was surprised to hear that Jim Harbaugh spoke at the event. Unfortunately, my friend did not leave with a positive impression.
Apparently Jim showed up an hour late. He then rambled on about Bo and other Michigan football stuff and played a slideshow with black and white photos from spring practice.
Personally, I would have loved to witness that in person, but I can understand why non-Michigan people may have had negative reactions. Anyway, just thought I would share because HARBAUGH.
EDIT: Found video.
EDIT 2: That video was from a different event.
