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.
Undoubtedly this will get a little silly (as it does every year)...but for those who could questions to Harbaugh at the final presser before Saturday's game. What would you ask?
There are a number of reporters who scan MGoBlog, maybe your question will get asked?! (For those who take this thread seriously)
Also, what unanswered questions are you looking forward figuring out the answers to this weekend?
There was that thread yesterday about Harbaugh saying 10 freshmen could play.
Well, he listed more than 10 when asked by Brandstatter on tonight's Inside Michigan Football radio show. He named-
- Rashan Gary
- Devin Asiasi
- Chris Evans
- Khaleke Hudson
- Quinn Nordin
- Devin Bush
- Josh Uche
- Elysee Mbem-Bosse
- David Long
- Lavert Hill
- Ben Bredeson
- Eddie McDoom
- Nate Johnson
I just had a chance to look over the list of televised games going on this weekend and saw that they're doing another game from Ireland (Georgia Tech vs BC) which airs at 7:30am Saturday morning. Personally, I love being able to catch meaningful college football from (almost) dawn to (well after) dusk on a holiday weekend. However, this also could be very inconvenient for those up late Friday or those traveling in the morning. So, two part question for the board: 1) Are early Saturday games a good thing? 2) If UM considers doing this at some point, would you support it?
In the past, moms have let these threads stand for a bit, and it's expanded the size of our group by a person or two each year. However, in the past I think I remembered to get these up before game week, so if it's too much board clutter, accept my apology and feel free to delete.
Anyway: we do indeed have a game watching group in Charlottesville, VA and it meets each week at LW's Livery Stable on the downtown mall. There is a facebook group where I post reminders that the group will be meeting, etc.
The Livery Stable's listed opening time is not until 5p on Saturdays, but if there is a noon or 3.30 game they always open for us.
We have a nice group where about 10 or so people consistently show up, and we've had up to 30+ for big games before.
Here is the link for the group page:
BUTTHURT EDIT: Previously the post was titled "Where do I watch the game in Charlottesville, VA," which is funny, because joke. Now I had to change the title to something lame because everyone is angry.
MOD EDIT - Reinstated the joke, but generalized to conform with an experiment we're going to try with making the first "Where Can I..." thread the all-purpose thread for such inquiries. See appropriate diary - LSA
POST MOD EDIT: Here is the link to the google map Michigan bar locator. Our CVille Bar is up to date and on the map. Obviously can't speak to any others.
