I GIVE UP ON HATING WISCONSIN
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.
After it was announced that Rudock will be transferring to the Good Guys, I have to say I enjoyed listening to the Sparty slappies on local sports talk radio and reading various message bords. In summary, their view is that Rudock makes our QB situation average at best. I guess time will tell but the fatal flaw in their argument is that the Rudock reached his ceiling last year. I believe that this coaching staff has the ability to not only coach him up but to build a game plan around his strengths. Back in early December I posted a message in one of the forums saying that I can wait for the press conference to announce Jim Harbaugh as our head coach. Now I can't wait to beat Sparty next year - to put them in their rightful place and to watch Dantonio making some sort of comment like "it will never be over." GAME ON!!!!
Now that the rosters are out, predictions time.
