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.

I enjoy the kids to go abroad to other countries.  Great recruiting tool, but need to pay the players.  After they commit, charge them for the trip and make them earn/win the games.  Fair trade... tickets cost me a fair amount and I work for them. Thoughts?

ANN ARBOR (The Harbowitz Report)—Warde Manuel, Director of Athletics for the University of Michigan, revealed during an emotionally charged press conference on Wednesday that the University was ready to acknowledge what many people had suspected for a number of years. Specifically, that U-M is, in truth, a basketball school.

(Almost) 50 Years of The Game (Since Bo/Woody): Best Games, Upsets, And Other Fun Facts

The modern era of The Game really began in 1969, when the 7-2 U of M Wolverines upset the #1 team in the country, the "unbeatable" Ohio State Buckeyes. This year will mark the 50th game since then, so I thought it'd be worth looking at some statistics around The Game over this incredible time period. 

Specifically, I collected AP rankings and records the week before the game, so as to answer: how often does an upset occur? Does the better team usually win? Some answers emerged, as well as some fun facts. 

So, a chart? Chart:

Anyone who has watched the team all year probably has a sense that the team is stronger in the second half of games. A robust analysis of this would look at yardage, yards per play, etc. but for a quick and dirty summary I looked at points scored and conceded in each half, and the numbers are interesting.

The Revenge Tour rolls through Columbus and we may or may not have the founder of said Revenge Tour on the field next Saturday.

If not, win it for Chase. But no matter what, win it for the B1G, for the playoff, for the direction of the program, and to finally shut those assholes up with their "1,xxx days since..."

Fuck them. Fuck their school, the colors, all of it. Fuck Zach Smith. Fuck their board of trustees. And fuck Urban Meyer. Send him into retirement with fat L that Chase can mock him for holding on Twitter.

Fuck OSU. Hate week begins now.
