here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
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.
Graham Glasgow got sentenced today for his drunk driving foolishness earlier this year (ARTICLE). He drew a pretty hefty sentence for a first offense: 12 months' probation, MADD impact panel session, $800 fine, and six days of community service. He also has to abstain from alcohol and take alcohol awareness classes, and also is subject to random drug and alcohol testing.
He made a serious mistake, and he's paying a price for it. (Nothing compared to what he would have faced had anyone been hurt.) Let's hope this is a lesson learned, and that he has a great year on the field and in the classroom.
In my personal opinion, it's not bad. It's no CyHawk trophy but I can live with it.
Jake "JMFR" Ryan is on the Butkus Award watch list this season.
Also, remember Kris Frost? He is, too.
Both of those guys on the same team would be pretty cool. I hope Ryan is as effective (or more so) in the middle as he was as a SAM.
Yesterday, I was offered a ticket to go to the Ohio game over Thanksgiving. With flight, hotel, ticket, etc., it's probably going to set me back a few grand, which may be a drop to some of you, but I'm a teacher. On top of this, missing Thanksgiving with the kids and wife.
I have the go-ahead, and I can make the finances work. I would be going with some Ohio grads from out here in Portland. A few years back, I would have called this a no-brainer, but I'm curious what the board would do. I've never been to the horseshoe before (though I can't say it's on my bucket list), but with all the crap I've heard about going down there, I'm wondering if I should do it.
Would you do it?
