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.
Kiffin is being sued for promising a former Alabama player a job given his ties to a 4 star recruit (former UF player). The guy and his wife quit their jobs and move to South Florida and then Kiffin / FAU go silent after the background check turns up a misdemeanor that was subsequently cleared. Where do you even start with this dumpster fire of a person? ____________________
Edit: so i did some research on the player he recruited and the guy actually was a 2017 JuCo transfer that already signed the FAU LOI. In other words, this guy is pretty much stuck at FAU if he wants to ever wants to play college football again.
In other words, Kiffin wasn't stupid here, he was just a gigantic bag of scum.

Artilce on ESPN that begins with Saban complaining to some reporter about being labeled a "ball control" offense, but ends with this money quote.
During his rant, Saban seemed quite displeased with new NCAA rules about high school camps.
"And we pass some rule that everybody has to live with, or some law, where the consequences mess up a lot of other things. We do it all the time. We're doing it right now. The NCAA is doing it. We're going to change the way we have summer camps. We can't have high school coaches working summer camps. I mean, it's the most ridiculous thing that I've ever seen. It is what it is and whatever they do, they do.
"So we say we don't want third-parties dealing with players. So we're not going to let the high school coach bring a guy to camp, but some third-party guy can bring him to camp now. Makes no sense at all. But all the people who have common sense, they don't say anything about it. But the people who scream the loudest will get the thing changed and it'll mess everything up. That's the way it goes. The way it goes in the world, politics, just the way it goes.".
How does that saying go... You made your bed, now you have to lay in it.
I just ran across a fascinating Jim Harbaugh story. The gist of it was he played catch with 3 girls in the law quad grass across from Dominick's. He wasn't kidding around, and they all ended up injured from the speed of the football. Not a gentle game of toss. Here's the link:
It is a pretty crazy, unreal, and very Harbaughesque story. Good read. This, however, brings up two things:
- I used the search function to look for the story on mgoblog, and failed. Maybe someone who is more internet savvy could tell me how to search for it. I am a regular reader at Mgoblog, and I'm positive I've never seen this link. But I could have easily missed it as well.
- It would be nice if there was a tab at the top (maybe under mgoboard or useful stuff?) with a repository of Harbaugh stories. Mods? Proprieters?
