The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

This surprised me, too, but I think the model accounts for experience, so a senior four-star is worth more than a freshman five-star. We are old all over the place this year, which you'd hope bodes well.
Bless you and your four children, Mathlete.

Find a bar that's showing multiple games. Go to it. I only have one TV, and a season's worth of games at bars is definitely cheaper than even buying a second one, let alone a third.

Thread necromancy in anticipation of a season during which I will prefer to watch games with others, rather than alone in my house, weeping with frustration into a couch pillow.
One major addition to the scene is RFD in Chinatown, which is now the official Alumni Association game watching bar in DC. It's big and they have a jillion beers (including the first and only Deschutes tap in the city, as of this past spring) and lots of TVs. Michigan game specials include $4 Bell's and $15 craft beer buckets. As a number of MGoWashingtonians can attest after Brian's recent appearance, their IT is not exactly top-notch. Games are on satellite so if it's storming outside the feeds can get messed up, although in fairness I think that's true of most bars.
Kangaroo Boxing Club is okay if you can get there in time to have a clear view of a TV. As previous commenters have mentioned, it's small and cramped. Lots of obstructed-view seats. The barbecue and comfort food is pretty solid, and they have a good if limited (compared to RFD) beer selection. Their "Michigan Drinking and Yelling" shirts are cool and good if you're into that kind of thing.
Buffalo Billiards does get very crowded, but IMHO the huge crowd can be fun -- 300 people singing the fight song together is exciting. Used to be the official Alumni Association bar but has ceded that title to RFD, as noted above. Even when they were the official AA bar, they weren't just a Michigan bar, so there are usually other games on.
The other official AA bar in the area is still Tommy Joe's, in Bethesda. I've never been, and I grew up in Silver Spring so I have a congenital dislike of Bethesda. YMMV.
Anyone else have updates or recommendations for where to watch games?

FYI, you have my favorite MGoUsername, although possibly for reasons that you will not understand unless you are from DC or the Maryland suburbs of DC.

Aw god damn it, if you aren't right that it's more common to say "another thing coming." Guess I've been mishearing people being wrong all these years.
"Another thing coming" makes no sense. I hate everyone.

That would be stunning, given the way OSU is likely to steamroll everyone this year. But he could be second-team for sure. 2500 yards, 25/6, 67% completion seems within reach and in the B1G that would be good enough.
Also, that stat line would mean we probably won 9+ games, which would be lovely.
God I'm sick of speculating.

He means "another think coming." Is the whole book this badly copy edited?
