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.

NOTE:  This is an update of a diary that I did in 2016.  It's now pertinent again, given the stakes of the September 1 match-up in South Bend.

 

The reboot of the Michigan / Notre Dame football series will have monumental stakes in the race for top all-time winning percentage.  In fact, Notre Dame will take over the lead again if the Irish beat Michigan in this year's opener.

The current records of the schools are:

I was hesitant to start a series on RPOs because it seemed like everyone was doing it after the Eagles Super Bowl, or, if they were in a different part of the country watching college football, already had. I have dozens of "articles" I have outlined that I'd like to post, but just don't have the time to put together (over the summer I fully scouted Michigan, Wisconsin, and PSU which means I also got a number of games of other B1G teams; alas, I only got part way through my Wisconsin list).

 

Student viewing party at Michigan Stadium for ND game

Student viewing party at Michigan Stadium for ND game

    This just popped up on my schedule. The only previoous one that I know of was the 2012 Cowboys Classic. My daughter went on her third day on campus and she said she along with most other students left by halftime. They had a viewing party in Crisler for the 2013 MSU game (a 29 to 6 loss) that I was at, where about the biggest cheer of the day was for a competed pass. Most other reactions being groans. Again there were few in the stands for the second half.

There is a tendency for us as fans to get a bit delusional this time of year, so I took advantage of a long car trip to listen to the other side’s take on the opening 2018 game. Because if anyone knows how to be delusional, it’s Notre Dame fans.

Before I start, it’s worth noting that the guys on the Blue & Gold podcast are far more grounded, intelligent, and well-spoken than the derp squads that cover say, OSU or MSU. They genuinely seemed to respect Michigan and the rivalry.

Based on comments made throughout camp it seems like there is going to be a lot more spread than we've seen, but I'm sure there will still be a lot of the same types of formations we've seen from previous Harbaugh teams. Will this be a mix of ohio state with more TE/FB incorporation, or are there any current teams in CFB who might run something similar to what Michigan will run this year?
