"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
Ok, this may be a long shot, but hoping that at least one member of the MGoCommunity has some advice.
I'll be in Bangkok, Thailand when Michigan plays MSU on 10/17 at 3:30 Eastern. If my time accounting is correct, that will be 5:30 AM on Sunday, October 18th, Bangkok time. Does anyone know of any bars/restaurants that may cater to Americans wanting to watch some college football? I tried the Michigan Bar Locator under "Useful Stuff" and a google search and found nothing I'm confident in.
*Having never travelled to Asia before, I'm just making the assumption that the hotel won't have ESPN or ABC. For you world travelers, is that assumption correct or is there a chance I'll be able to watch from the comfort of my room? I'll be staying at a Hilton branded property if that matters....

Nothing else to do tonight...cheers.
So, over at Eleven Warriors, one of the key Ohio State blogs, they have great discomfort over their team. Specifically, fans are really struggling with their QB situation, and with their offense. Here's a sampling of thread links:
Discussion on how they view the QB sit, with some tweets. Here's one:
Chris Spielman said he's doesn't know why Urban Meyer is going with Cardale Jones. Said the timing between QB & WR is not there.
Discussion not just on QB situation, but entire offense. Here's a sample post:
If Ohio State doesn't beat this Maryland team by 28 points (the same Michigan beat them) and dominate throughout, panic is the right word. How could it not be? You'll have seen the team not perform as well as your rival against a common opponent, right before hitting the meat of the B1G schedule.
Convoluted discussion and theory on why things are going so poorly with Ohio State's offense.
Also, apparently their live board really melted down on Saturday, with extremely inappropriate and racist comments about Cardale. A good reason not to go to a totally live and totally anonymous chat.
For being 5 - 0, and the number one team in the country, Ohio State fans are really nervous and struggling. Oh, and one other thing. I haven't seen nearly as much in the way of thinking Harbaugh is a lousy coach. They still think he is half crazy, but not too many think he is a lousy coach. In fact, a lot of them really, really wish he would go to Miami: they realize that the jig is up for OSU dominance in the Big 10.
This is the kind of schadenfreude I really love. I mean, the schadenfreude of Texas fans? That's just piling on. The schadenfreude of Buckeyes? Them are some delicious, tasty nuggets.
Is there an mgoradio feed today? If so, consider this the thread where we talk about how annoying the Bob Ufer impersonator is. If not, Witness my mediocrity.
The Monday after a game is the time to touch on the most pressing of subjects. Such as, where on earth are the equipment folk going to put helmet stickers after the next two-ish games? For reference, check out Rudock's helmet here, with stickers from only 1/3 of the total games from the season:
Do they start stacking them on top of each other? Cashing in wolverine stickers for an 'M' sticker that's worth 20 wolverines? Discuss.
This has to hurt an already up to now mediocre offense.
