"Where to watch the game" for locations not in the bar finder or with an alumni club page

Yup, it's "that thread" again. 

The disclaimer, of course, is that it's for locations which are neither in the (woefully outdated) Michigan bar locator or covered by an alumni club page. 

For me, I'll be in the Quad Cities (Davenport and Bettendorf, IA and Moline and Rock Island, IL) tomorrow night and looking for a Michigan-friendly bar to watch the game. I may try to drag along my Sparty co-worker. 

No alumni club anywhere in Iowa and the only IL one is in Chicago. The bar-finder also doesn't list any locations in the QC.

Anyone have experience watching Michigan games there? If no Michigan-friendly bar, any good sports bar, in general, at which to watch the game?

I know there is another thread that contains the information addressing the company that Moe just joined but I didn't want his reaction to the news to get lost.

This is from the beginning of the season until now, so the territorial control is heavily influenced by the regular season and conference tournaments. For those unfamiliar with rules, they are explained on the site.

Poole -- half-time hero

Loved reading about Jordan Poole going around the locker room at half-time talking to and firing up Robinson, Rahk, Matthews, Zavier and Moe.  Most 18-year-old freshman would be hesistant to try to take over a room full of guys with a lot more experience, but I'm guessing that Poole was oblivious to that.  I also thought his 6 points in the 2nd were significant to us getting back in the game, and that he just looked relaxed when it seemed like the rest of the team was struggling:

Last done by Magic and MSU 1in 1979, all wins by double digits -

though that was 5 games, not 6.

Can Villanova do it?

No, they are due for a close game.

How will they respond?

Also, our patter is, game 1, bad shooting, game 2, same

game 3, shoot the lights out

game 4, bad shooting, game 5, same

game 6 -

SHOOT THE LIGHTS OUT!!!

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman just set two school records tonight: most games played in a career (143) and most minutes played in a season (1,398).  Those aren't the most glamorous stats, but they show what a reliable option he's been for Beilein to turn to, this year and throughout his career.  

MAAR has logged by far the most minutes of anyone on the team this season.  (Matthews is second at 1,201, and Wagner third at 1,045.)  Hopefully he's got enough in his legs for one more big outing.

(You can find the record lists on the MGoBlue statistics archive.)
