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.

After Solomon committed, I noticed that Chris Hinton and Giles Jackson tweeted that we aren’t done in this class.  Would obviously take that to mean that there is at least another guy on the hook...Hinton and Jackson have been two of our most actively outspoken commits on Twitter. 

Could it be as simple as Cornelius Johnson(which is exciting in its own right)?

Potential solutions for players sitting out bowl games?

We argue about the trend often but we mostly agree it's less fun when the best players don't play. How can college football address this to better protect players and appease fans?

I'd like to see the NCAA allow schools to take out larger loss-of-value insurance policies for draft eligible players as a start. If that's not financially feasible for smaller schools, perhaps that money could come partially or entirely from a pool all of the bowls have to pay into.
