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.
This is the moment Michigan fans always pretended was imminent, but still secretly fear isn’t real. This is the moment Michigan State fans always pretended would never happen, but secretly feared it would. Michigan is 7-0 and ranked second in the country. Michigan State is 2-5 and ranked sixth in the state of Michigan, behind 7-1 Wayne State. The rivals clash Saturday, and Michigan is favored by anywhere from 21 to 78 points, depending on how loud and drunk the Michigan fan is as he jabs a chubby finger into the Michigan State fan’s chest. Hey, the Spartans can’t say they weren’t warned. They’ve done some heavy, heavy trolling while winning seven of eight meetings, led by disrespect-addicted coach Mark “Still No D” Antonio. The Wolverines took their punishment without much resistance, even apologizing when they were mildly disrespectful.
The Spartans can’t believe this is happening after just reaching the national playoff, where they impressively held the Crimson Tide below 40. The Wolverines can’t fully grasp it either, wondering if this is some sort of trap and Antonio suddenly will start using the real playbook, the one with actual first-down passes, minus fake field goals with one second left in the half. I’m not saying the Spartans are in a daze after starting 0-4 in the Big Ten for the first time since 1982. I’m just saying there are Michigan State fans staggering through the streets wearing stained Cotton Bowl T-shirts and “Make State Great Again” hats. I’m just saying Michigan State’s defense was assigned the task of protecting the Sparty statue this week, and at last report, Sparty was missing his helmet, half an arm, and obscenely, his entire codpiece. He also was caked in approximately 27 coats of blue paint.http://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/columnists/bob-wojnowski/2016/10...
The Wallstreet Journal has a story with a few details provided by Baylor Board of Regent Members. It's unreal the attitude taken by some of the Baylor donors and boosters:
Drayton McLane, a billionaire businessman whose name is on the Baylor football stadium, and other large donors asked the board for a private briefing on why the regents took such drastic action. Mr. Murff, chairman of the regents, declined to give them details of the investigation.
“They were very cold,” Mr. McLane said in an interview, adding that the controversy won’t affect his giving to Baylor and that he “just wants to understand the decisions that were made.”
Mr. Murff said other wealthy alumni suggested they would withhold millions of dollars if Baylor didn’t bring Mr. Briles back.
After whining to the referees all night long, Pat Narduzzi gave VT WRs a lot of praise.....
"They did a great job pushing off all night. Give them credit for that."
you can take a coach away from little brother, but you cannot take the little brother away from the coach.
So my boy's team just lost to a team last night in Charlotte (jr. varsity).
The WR puts up about 150 yds and 2 TDs - and our team has a good defense (we were 6-1).
Turns out he is Randy Moss's boy, he had hands like pillows of glue, our corner was right on him but it did not matter.
Don't know if Harbaugh and Moss get along...
