i like 'em both
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.
Just curious (sending the bat signal out to Wolverine Devotee if no one else knows) when was the last time we were a big underdog and pulled a "major" upset? I don't mean -4 or -7 type of line but say -10 to-12+. I know we were rarely in a position to be such underdogs but are we talking the late 60s? Or has there been some game along the line I've forgotten where people gave us no chance and were flat wrong. Outside of the obvious first Bo OSU game.
Along those lines I wonder between say 1970 and 2007 how many times we've been underdogs by 10+ points in any game, anywhere, anytime. I know 2008 forward it has happened relatively often but in the Bo/Mo/Lloyd era - not much after Bo's first team I imagine. Probably that 6-6 team vs BYU in the 86 bowl? Maybe one of the Rose Bowls along the way? One of those undefeated or 1 loss John Cooper teams? Even a game like Oregon 2007 I doubt we were -10, heck we may have been favored since we were at home. FSU 91? I imagine it was less than a half a dozen times in those ~40 years.
Both of them at the same time? It's rough having to eat getting trounced by TCU that way.
See link for exact language:
The gist is that it would take too long to fire Brandon, bring in a new AD, and then hire a new football coach. So if we want a chance Harbaugh next season, we should want Brandon to remain AD at least through the football coach hiring process.
I'm seeing this all over my Facebook at the moment. All the players are posting about it. It seems like an impromptu football pep rally they will be holding on the Diag at 6pm this Thursday. I'll post some links as soon as I can find them. Is this news or did I miss this announcement?
I came across this article earlier in the day and it shocked me. I have not seen it posted anywhere on the board and thought this would be a good first post.
It simply is an article about our quarterback Devin Gardner has been called the n-word by the same people who call themselves fans of Michigan football.
This is just sad. How could a kid who has given his young life to the great University of Michigan and the fans deserve something so pathetic from some of the fans regardless of how he has played. He has given everything he has, and has done everything asked of him as well. I know its not all of them, but man it still is sad that he would have to deal with this.
