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...


...since most of these bars are officially alumni bars. To find your club and events happening in your area, visit their website.



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.

I attended the Lions-Cardinals game at State Farm yesterday with my brother, who lives outside Phoenix. The field condition was among the worst I’ve ever seen live, and the field was pretty chewed up pretty quickly. We saw the probable end of Ziggy Ansah’s Lions career, and so many guys went out, it was getting comical. The roof was open, but it was perfectly pleasant and sunny.

So while I would have preferred to play LSU, I am somewhat grateful that we won’t, perhaps, lose someone for the spring, if not longer, because of field conditions.

#1 - Alabama. "Who knew Tua's younger brother would be better? Returning all american Dax Hill looks like a stud too. Signed the #1 class in 2019, 2020 and return 16 All-SEC to the 2 deep. What an amazing job Nick Saban does between this and his consumer award winning car dealership. Ranked #1 in customer satisfaction by Consumer Reports."

#2 - Clemson. "After coming up just short in 2018, 2019 and 2020, is this the year they finally get past the Tide? Rematch #7 in the College football playoff looks likely. The ACC looks weaker then normal."
