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.

Live Film review with Devin Gardner & Michael Spath Royal Oak and Ann Arbor

Live Film review with Devin Gardner & Michael Spath Royal Oak and Ann Arbor

Submitted by Vote_Crisler_1937 on September 20th, 2018 at 9:56 PM

I just returned from watching Devin Gardner break down the film of 15 plays from last Saturday’s game. This happens at 6:30pm every Thursday at Tap House in Royal Oak and earlier in the week at The Grotto Ann Arbor and next week also Weber’s Inn. 

These are put together by Michael Spath and are very friendly to Q&A. I learned a couple interesting things from Devin and it’s fascinating to hear how a player like him sees things when watching a game. 

Devin told me to post this and invite all of you to attend next week and the rest of the season. 

OT: Browns-Jets

The Browns haven't won a game since 2016 (they tied Week 1, so technically their losing streak was over). This game was circled as their big chance, but the Jets might have a ROY quarterback. 

Either way, this is our chance to watch some truly horrible football being played (without the Lions being involved  /sob)

2018: Tim Drevno (probably) still sucks but it's USC's problem now

The Michigan fan base collectively celebrated when Tim Drevno was shown the door this offseason, paving the way for new fan favorite Ed Warriner to come in and save our broken OL, simplify our schemes and fix our pathetic pass protection. The jury is still out on Warriner (early returns seem good but we need time), but I wanted to look at our former OL/OC. Drevno left Michigan and returned to USC as their RB coach working under Clay Helton and OC Tee Martin. To start, lets look at the situation Drevno was walking into at USC.

Yes, yes, I know that Michigan scored on each of their last 7 drives. I am aware of this, and that's a very good thing. But, c'mon, most of the first half was of the "not fun" variety, and it has a lot to do with the offense going punt-punt-interception on their first 3 drives. It was very close to being INT-punt-INT, but I digress.

The Michigan Insider has articles up today on three different Class of 2020 composite four-star players at Daxton Hill's high school, Tulsa's Booker T. Washington, representing the top three 2020 prospects in Oklahoma. According to 247, Michigan is actively recruiting all three, and some of them are more favorable to Michigan after Daxton's commitment:

I thought this was a well written article by Orion Sang at the Freep. Cesar had a tough childhood in Camden, NJ after his father died when Cesar was 8.

For those who have seen the Mark Cuban interview on ESPN (Rachel Nichols grills him pretty well IMO), I'd like to get your take on his response to the sexual abuse/harassment that took place within the Mavs organization.  While it is impossible to ever know how somebody really feels in terms of empathy and remorse, his interview came off as one where he is at least taking 100% blame for the culture within his organization, under his watch, that led to women and other employees being treated poorly and creating a t
