ED-Seth: Welcome to our Bar Finder Sticky. The user community has kept this going since 2009 to help MGoBloggers find UM-friendly sites for their suds consumption.

We also got a big boost in curation in 2016 from our sponsors, the...

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 would be surprised if this were the outcome, but M, MSU & PSU are in a virtual dead heat at 2-4. Predictably, OSU / Wisconsin are substantial favorites to win their divisions.

The only non-OSU or Wisconsin title winner vote went to MSU which suggests to me that there is someone who needs to be removed from the poll. That voter probably makes the difference between the 2-4 B1G East rankings as well.

Interested to hear folks' point of view on this...

Day at the Races: Harbaugh Interview from 7/18

Submitted by Away Goal on July 20th, 2018 at 4:11 PM

Harbaugh was at opening day at Del Mar on Wednesday.  Fun 18-minute interview with Scott Kaplan and Billie-Ray Smith from local sports radio.  Does not really get too in-depth on upcoming football season but he tells a good story about what happened after he lost the Super Bowl to his brother.

Nebraska comes to Ann Arbor to play Michigan on 22 September.

Big question for Huskers is who will replace QB Tanner Lee.  Tristan Gebbia (4-star pro style QB from Mike Riley) or true frosh Adrian Martinez (4-star dual threat from Clovis, CA).

Every few weeks I see one of those click bait articles that show celebrities that used to be athletes.  Watching a talk show yesterday,  Joel McHale was on and he was a walk-on TE at Washington.   I did not know that.   In an effort to not click on sites other than MGoBlog, who are other surprising college football players or athletes?

The football gods have smiled upon me and presented an opportunity for my first away game experience. It just so happens to be the ND game! I have never been to South Bend. I want to ask the board for advice how to "properly do an away game at ND". The MGoWife and I traveling up from Atlanta. What has worked for you in the past? What hasn't worked? Where was your favorite place to go before/after the game? There was a similar thread posted yesterday about traveling to/from Rutgers and how to navigate the terrain. Thanks in advance!

Here's a topic that's rarely been discussed. /s  The board is so busy right now, but there will still be a lot of replies. /s If this was the old board, I'd get a ton of upvotes for starting this topic. /s

On to the topic. 

Should Peters have started? 

Yes. Reason? Because.
