well that's just, like, your opinion, man
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.
An interesting bit of news during the abyss that is late July college football news. Treon Harris offically left Florida. This means he is the 7th Florida QB to transfer since 2013 and:
Every #Gators QB to commit to UF during the Will Muschamp era has since transferred from the program. Pretty wild.— Landon Watnick (@LandonWatnick) July 25, 2016
Impressive. The QB battle is now apparently between an Oregon State transfer and Purdue transfer Austin Appleby. I anxiously look forward to another thrilling 9-7 victory over Vanderbilt this fall.
After seeing the link to the BTN ranking of the top 100 players in the UV (link HERE), I wanted to see how the individual schools stacked up to each other. Here are the schools with the number of players on the list.
Michigan State - 15
Ohio State - 14
Michigan - 10
Nebraska - 10
Penn State - 9
Iowa - 9
Indiana - 7
Wisconsin - 6
Northwestern - 5
Illinois - 4
Rutgers - 4
Minnesota - 3
Purdue - 2
Maryland - 2
Some thoughts: Michigan is in 3rd, but all ten are in the top 48. As Brian noted, Glasgow not being on the list is criminal. Both Ohio State and Michigan State had a lot of players in the bottom 50. I was really surprised to see Maryland only have two players on the list. I think they are not on the same level as Purdue.
What are your thoughts on the list? Do you think the amount of players per school is on par with their standing within the conference?
The Big Ten Media Days started at 1:00 EST. Jim will be speaking today, along with three of our players in Jake Butt, Amara Darboh, and Jourdan Lewis.
This article is free of any Michigan slights, however the comment section is probably another story.
-Don Brown is the man
-Ohio State rushing attack can (will!) be stopped by discipline and technique

I haven't seen this posted anywhere and thought this could be something fun.
Happy voting. All in the spirit of an excellent season Go Blue!
