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.
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.
A buddy sent me this link from twitter. Not sure who the guy is, but he seems pretty credible. He does have 30k followers on twitter, so the guy should have some knowledge, at least. The link doesnt specify who or what the changes will be, but does say some changes are likely to happen. It also states that will not be any time soon. Let the speculation begin.
The man who has given us the new "MARCUS HALL EPIC DOUBLE BIRD OF THE WEEK" section of the game columns will, in fact, suffer some repercussions for his actions in the Michigan game:
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer announced on Friday that guard Marcus Hall will not start against Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game. Meyer declined to elaborate when he’d insert Hall in the game, only saying that he’s “very, very disappointed in his actions.”
"Will not start" punishements are the best. They let you do just enough so your critics can't say you did nothing, but the actual impact on the team is minimal.
...with that said, if memory serves we've done the same thing plenty of times, so glass houses and all that.
Auburn destroys Missouri.Ohio gets a lucky win in a close,dull,controversial game (MSU gets called for a shady pass interference penalty late in 4th Qrt.) BCS voters put Auburn ahead of Ohio.A bitter Ohio goes to Rose. Urban cries to the media about Auburn being chosen ahead of Ohio and is roundly critisized for being a hypocritical crybaby.Ohio gets beaten badly by Stanford/ASU.Sparty goes to Cap1or Outback Bowl and loses big.
I had problems with Bill Martin as well, but this quote by him really says it all: ''Just because you can charge them more, doesn't mean you should.''
Staff salaries, for example, have grown from $34 million to $49 million under Brandon, including a 62-percent increase in administrator compensation. The athletic department’s spending on “Marketing, promotions and ticketing,” and “Professional travel and conference dues,” have tripled to almost three million. But perhaps most surprising is the $2.6 million the department now spends on “Hosting, Food and Special Events,” an increase of almost 500-percent
In other words, the additional millions the fans are now being forced to pay are not going to the students on the field, but the suits in the building – including almost a million dollars a year for the Athletic Director himself, three times the salary of his predecessor.
Hey Brandon, why don't you take some of your salary and put it back into the football budget where it belongs. Last time I checked the amount we spend on the football program compared to osu, texas, and others was significantly less.
