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.

Westgate Las Vegas CFP Final 4 Odds: Alabama, Clemson, Ohio St, Michigan

Westgate Las Vegas CFP Final 4 Odds: Alabama, Clemson, Ohio St, Michigan

Westgate gambling odds have Michigan making it into the College Football Playoffs Final 4. Westgate claims it is the largest sports gambling book in the world. They have Georgia, a team many think have a real shot at the National Championship this year, at 5th, just outside the CFP Final 4. Most people don't know though, that Georgia lost 2/3's of it special teams, and 2 deep players, to graduation and the draft. That means they had many experienced players last year. There probably won't be 2 teams from the SEC in the playoffs this year. But, maybe 2 teams from the BIG 10? Maybe so.

Recruiting: Speed

I've been watching a lot of highlight tape lately because of the recent roll of commitments, and crystal balls that have been put in for our targets. And in reading and doing some digging, and watching the film of them all, I've come to the conclusion that harbaugh's recruiting speed heavily. I think that this is something other teams in the past have been lacking, but wow, all the kids recently being recruited are for the most part sub-4.8 including Ojabo, who in my opinion is a freak athlete and a monster in the making.

Enough of this bs about The Game at night. See the other thread for why that is an awful idea.

We should spend that time campaigning on a far better cause, which is (assuming it is able to remain UM and osu's final game of the season), moving The Game to the weekend BEFORE Thanksgiving.

Just curious, but have we ever played OSU at night?  At this point in the rivalry and in the age that we are currently in, this is a game that makes sense to be played at night.  There are so many other big rivalries played at night and if UM/ND can do it, we should be able to do it too.
