I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
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.
For those that don't care about the negative recruiting threads or the corny morale threads and just want to watch some football...you've come to the right place.
Football talk only.

As we wait for our bowl game selection in the midst of all these negative posts regarding recruits or coaches, I think it prudent to remember what it truly means to be a Michigan fan.
First an foremost, its bigger than any one man or recruit. Its being part of the biggest alumni association in the world. It's watching a home football game with more fans than any team in the country. It's being part of a program and University that's about integrity. I'm proud to know that when people talk about my school, I don't have to worry about what potentially is going on behind the scenes. The running of a clean program. We asked for more six years ago and the impact was significant. Now, however, I can honestly say I feel like things are being done the right way. No I don't like the record but I respect my school and my team and will support the leaders that our university has hired to right the ship.
I have no better memory than singing the fight song with the likes of Bo, Dierdorf, and many other Michigan alums in the hotel bar after the Rose Bowl win in 1998. That is the glory we will return to.
Once you become a Michigan Man you don instant credibility and respect throughout the country, not just as a football player, but as man. Doors are opened because you are from Michigan. Go Blue!
Desmond strongly calls out Ohio State's Marcus Hall (and Meyer and Delany) for his antics at the Game.
He made a great point about Hall not being suspended, along the lines of: "It would not have been up to my coach or the Big Ten commissioner if I had done something like that to disgrace my family and my program.
My dad, DJ would have stepped in and flat out said 'Son, you are not playing'."
Honor still lives.
It is happening, folks.
At 8PM on ESPN2, this season's ultimate MACtion will occur right here in the Detroit area - at Ford Field, as a matter of fact.
Bowling Green takes on Northern Illinois for all of the MAC marbles in just a few moments. Per TeamRankings, NIU is the favorite - 3 points, about a 60% projected chance.
If you had plans to watch football, this would perhaps be the football you meant to watch.
