THE ORIGINAL POST:
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.
I know this conversation will probably drag on for a while and it's still purely speculation at this point, so if you're already over it don't read any furter.
With that said, although I do still think Speight is probably #1 on the depth chart right now due to age, experience, and a number of quality games last year (with some bad ones too), based on what I've seen so far in the spring, and in particularl the last spring practice video, Peters looks way better than Speight.
Speight often threw to one WR without looking at other options. Speight often through into traffic or good coverage, rarely completed his passes, and did not use any head, eye, or ball fakes to decieve his intentions to the defense.
Peters on the other hand looked sharp, completed most of his passes, and found open recievers quickly. Caveots apply. I don't know who was playing defense on those recievers or even who most of the recievers were at the time other than the TEs that were easy to spot. And, it wasn't live so the QBs knew they weren't going to get hit. But, based on what I'm seeing this spring, Peters may be our guy next year unless there is a big swing in how these guys are performing in practice. I don't see Harbaugh as the kind of coach to just give it to Speight based on last year if he's being out-performed by Peters in practice.
For those who haven't seen the video, here's the link from Scout:
Just woke up and turned on Sportscenter....Finebaum is impressed with the Rome trip. He said "this is what the college experience is all about." Even the world's biggest turd agrees Harbaugh's innovation on this topic can't be argued.
It seems as though good teams finally figured osu out. In reality, osu won against Michigan due to poor officiating and key mistakes by our team. We had that game. They went up against Clemson and failed hard.
Was this due to a vastly superior defensive line, the offense just sucking, JT Barret being meh?
In the aftermath, osu decided to hire Kevin Wilson who I am sure will make osu deathly frightening. What does this mean for us and how do we defend against whatever they are hatching?
Haven't seen this posted yet. Here's a first look at MIchigan players who apparently have signed UFA contracts with NFL teams:
- De'Veon Smith - Dolphins
- Channing Stribling - Browns
- Matt Godin - Texans
- Kyle Kalis -Redskins
- Erik Magnuson - 49ers
Here's the complete list of all UFA signings as of this AM:
