"Rodrick Williams Jr.'s 10-month old, 2-foot-long savannah monitor named "Kill" gets the RB some strange looks when they go for walks together."
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.
until Jim Harbaugh leads Michigan to a victory in Rice-Eccles Stadium against the Utah Utes. 4 DAYS!!!
Somebody put together a cool video on youtube that compiled lots of newsclips, press conferences, etc spanning from Shane's concussion, to Brandon's "resignation," through to Harbaugh coming home to Ann Arbor. It's over an hour long, but I enjoyed watching it and reliving the many ups and downs we went through from October to now. Can't wait for Thursday night.
As the season grows closer and closer my obsessive need for content has increased exponentially. I came across this interview from Jake Rudock and found it very interesting and very sad. It is just another example at the ineptitude of the previous coaching staff.
At the 0:55 second mark, he was asked about how he's been in 3 or 4 different offense's in 4 years and he interjects with this gem,
"That's Shane. He's learned like 5, or 6, or 10, or 20."
All of the interviewers laugh and I even let out a chuckle but as I thought about it further, my heart just started to ache.
My heart aches because 1) I think I may have either stable angina or psychogenic chest pain secondary to the panic attacks and hyperventilating from watching the past several years. Either one sucks. 2) I feel so terrible for these young men. They commit to a program and sacrifice so much day in and day out for the team, all while trying to earn a degree on top of it. I played college football in AZ so I know what it is like to go through that.
I know these players are now getting the teaching and coaching that they truly need and deserve. I feel terrible for those that never got the chance to be coached by actual competent coaches in the past 7 years and even more props to those that stayed through all of the garbage.
Here’s to a bright season and even brighter future of Michigan Football. Cheers!
Edited: to make the title less alarming
Not just a WR, not just a CB, but is a two way player.
On Scout, he dropped completely off of Sam Webb's WR depth chart leading many to believe he'd made the change to CB full-time.
I'm a two way player, I play Offense and Defense, too clear up the confusion..— FreddyFootwork (@FreddCanteen_) August 30, 2015
- Baxter said he has a “gut feeling” about who will be the team’s kicker Thursday, but opted to keep that feeling private.
- Blake O'Neill and Kenny Allen, "will both punt for Michigan this year.”
- Junior safety Dymonte Thomas, senior wide receiver Jehu Chesson, sophomore defensive back Jabrill Peppers and junior cornerback Jourdan Lewis have each been returning punts and kicks in practice, and all four will be available to field both kicks and punts
