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.

First time throwing an RV tailgate

First time throwing an RV tailgate

I went to PSU for a rather epic tailgate last year. I'm not your classic partier but this setup was too special for me not to be impressed (2 adjacent RVs, parked on grass Friday night through Sunday morning, a few paces from the stadium, with 10 friends plus significant others...and somehow our party grew to 50 or 60 strong by absorbing fun strangers).

So 2018 is my first chance to host these guys on my turf and try to duplicate or top 2017. But now I see that the golf course doesn't permit RVs and the Blue Lot won't allow even one overnight stay, let alone two in a row.

I don't know who this YouTuber is but he popped up on my feed.  He built a mock-up of a chrome Michigan helmet.  This is not sanctioned in any way by the school (as far as I know) so it's not happening in a game (as far as I know).  It's just an interesting take on what a chrome Michigan helmet might look like, so I thought I'd share.  Don't shoot the messenger.

According to "The Times" of Beaver, Pennsylvania, Donovan Jeter has been moved from Defensive End to Nose Guard.

“I remember in high school I used to hate double teams. I just hated the thought of going inside. But now I’m 310, 315 pounds and that’s what I’ve got to do.”

Jeter had impressed Michigan’s coaches enough during spring and fall camp that he projected to be part of the rotation as a true freshman. But Jeter’s path hit a speed bump toward the end of fall camp when he tore his meniscus in practice.

Hopefully they open it up for parking for MBB and Hockey etc.

Parking in that area for Hockey/Volleyball/Softball/Baseball etc. is very slim pickens. 

When Does UM Ticket Office Release Road Game Tix?

Hi guys. I have been looking to post this for a while and today seems like the slow sports day to do so:

 

I have been waiting on and looking for the Michigan Ticket Office to release their road tickets, so I can assure that I sit with my people at the ND and NU games!

Anybody have info on when/how this happens? I am a season ticket holder and member of the Alumni Association if that makes a difference. I have searched multiple times for info on this and have found nothing.
