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.

Charity Tailgate Needs Support! + HomeSure Tailgate Info 2018

Charity Tailgate Needs Support! + HomeSure Tailgate Info 2018

For the last few years a fellow MGoReader has hosted a charity tailgate at his building, on Hoover just past Elbel Field and the train tracks. 

This is the same place we did Football  Eve last year and will be doing it there again this year.

Raising money for the Cancer Support Community of Ann Arbor has been the goal since the start of the Charity Tailgate. Some ordinance changes have threatened this. Help if you can. Supporting the Kickstarter includes a piece of the stadium seats.

Future UM running back Eric Gray is dedicating his senior season to charity in an effort to raise money for St. Jude's childrens research hospital.

He and a teammate are attempting to raise $10,000 by their scoring of touchdowns and field goal kicks.

I'm sure our awesome members can once again roll out the Michigan Money Cannon to assist these young men in reaching their charitable goal and maybe even beyond.

OT: Army Football 2017 Stadium video

I came across this video, in which West Point used last year as their stadium entrance video. I am of the opinion that this could be the best collegiate football stadium video I have ever seen. Being an Army vet though, one could say I am subjective. Great subtle nod to their 2016 win over Navy too. Only took 16 years...

Nonetheless, enjoy.

Some more good stuff from the Wolverine Lounge breaking down each position group and their progress. 

From one of his sources: “Jim McElwain has seen talent in his day, ane even he is surprised at this roster’s stacked talent.”
