that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
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.
Tomorrow, Rivals will continue their RCS in New Jersey. With the state of New Jersey being a major point of emphasis in Michigan's recruiting, the event will be filled with Michigan targets.

I agree with most of his takes on Funchess but he doesn't know about his injury that he sustained against Notre Dame.
ED BISB: yeah, maybe not so much with the jackass title.
EDIT: It was meant to poke fun at most of the poster's apparent disdain for Funchess most of the season hence my post title. Obviously, that joke didn't work. I'm a big fan of Funchess and think he can succeed in the NFL.
Per MLive, HBO had cameras to follow Jim around a bit, they were at the spring game as well. He is going to be featured on this week's episode of Real Sports. Tuesday at 10PM.
Should be a fun episode, we can take back the airwaves from OSU, they had a massive profile of Urban Meyer on there earlier this year.
It still seems surreal to me that Jim Harbaugh left the NFL and took the Michigan job. Some players feel the same way.
Also, I didn't know that all the major television networks treated his introductory press conference as breaking news. It was broadcast on every network.
The whole thing is worth listening to. The bit on Harbaugh starts 47 minutes in and lasts for about 4-5 minutes.

- He thinks that it's going to work there but not "a quick fix"
- Harbaugh's offense is "Bo Schembechler football with Jon Gruden's playbook."
- Harbaugh learned a lot of offense from Bill Callahan while a QC guy at the Raiders
- He thinks that Harbaugh will delegate the details of his offense to his OC, but he thinks wrongly that Jedd Fisch will be the OC (he's pretty down on Fisch)
- So the offense probably won't look exactly the way it did at Stanford.
The other thing that's interesting from this blog's readership's perspective is that Chris Brown also talks about offensive styles and systems, and he points out that whether you're an up-tempo spread team or a traditional power team, "it all works." He does suggest that offenses get in trouble if they don't commit to an offensive identity and philosophy (something that set off alarm bells in my head). He suggested that it's fine to have a preference -- coaches obviously do -- but that you need to stick to that preference and have an identity. Ultimatley however, all systems go about putting pressure on defenses, but using different methods. That discussion begins at the 40 minute mark.
