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.
Looking forward to seeing anyone that can make it tomorrow night. Just a reminder, the first beer is on me if you pre-register. Or, if you arrive after I have 3 beers and I cease to care who is getting free beers.
A new thing this year that didn't really get explained by Brian: Trivia! We will play two games, hosted by our friends from Sporcle Live. Trivia will be Michigan Football Themed. We will play two hour long games. If you haven't played Sporcle before, they host a great pub trivia game.
First prize for each game will be a pair of seats to a game this fall, I haven't decided which to part with yet. Second prize will be a gift card of some sort. First prize can only be one once, sorry to any dominate teams but let's share the wealth.
Location: Wolverine State Brewing Co.
8:00pm Season Preview Q/A with the MGoStaff
8:30 Trivia Game 1
9:30 Trivia Game 2
Has there been any confirmation of the Harbaugh/Rolovich faceoff - will this really happen? This would make an outstanding exhibition event before the season-opening kickoff. I've only seen offhand comments here and there, so here is a thread to consolidate the discussion.
EDIT: For the 3 or 4 people on this site who do not rabidly follow every nuance of UM football (both lovers and haters), this is what I am discussing:
In an effort to keep this board college football focused, I wanted to see what former Michigan recruits that we were relatively high on or at least recruited to some degree do you plan on watching this season? This obviously would include former commits as well. This might be just keeping tabs on a player or actually going out of your way to watch a game you otherwise wouldn't just to watch that player. This might give some of us who will be watching several games per weekend this year anyways some additional people to pay attention to.
For me, two come to mind: Kalen Ballage, Arizona State, and JuJu Smith-Schuster, USC.
Ballage I always thought had the size and came from an under recruited area that he could've been good in our offense and this was only magnified by his run last season where he carried a defense over 20 yards for a touchdown.
JuJu just seemed to be such a polished player coming out of high school and getting a 5 star out of California would've been awesome. He was touted more as a safety coming out and now he's being compared as a WR to Dez Bryant by Nick Saban. Hopefully he goes off against Notre dame this season.
What former recruits/commits are you looking forward to watching this season?
Just heard on Rich Eisen show. Have not seen that posted. Apparently also Jordan will not do the coinflip for the first game, Jeter will be doing it. Apologize if not thread-worthy.
