The Brown Jug
Name: The Brown Jug
Location: 2014 S. University st.
Drinkability rating: Pretty high. A football player or two (or 10) have been known to show up at the watering hole on a Saturday night.
Urineability rating: Average. Sure, a trough filled with ice seems like a fine place to pee after you've knocked back a few, but have you ever done it sober? It's a little too awkward for Daily Sports.
Favorite story: Insert your own. Bonus points if vomiting is included.
The Little Brown Jug

Even though the status of quarterback Chad Henne and running back Mike Hart remains unknown, there is one certainty: Saturday's game against last-place Minnesota is the final chance for the Wolverines to rest their starters before a stretch run at Michigan State, at Wisconsin and against Ohio State to close the season.
Whether that will happen is anyone's guess.

They're sort of strange, sort of bizarre and, well, sort of cool.
That's the best way to describe the circumstances colliding this weekend for the Michigan hockey team's home opener against Boston University.

It took about a half longer than expected, but the Michigan football team handled Minnesota 34-10 to retain the Little Brown Jug for another year.
The Wolverines were without senior quarterback Chad Henne (shoulder injury) and senior running back Mike Hart (ankle), and looked sluggish on the offensive side of the ball due to the absence of the two leaders.

The Michigan football team has thrived on turnovers this season. The Wolverines have forced more fumbles and intercepted more passes than any other Big Ten team.
But there's a different kind of turnover that has plagued Michigan this season.
The offensive line has just one member who has played the same position through all eight games of this season - captain Jake Long. The senior has started every game at left tackle for the past two-plus seasons, a string of 25 straight games.

What do you know? The famous saying "the more things change, the more they stay the same" rings true once again.
Five weeks have passed in the Big Ten conference race, and the top of the standings has a familiar ring to it. Just like last year, Michigan and Ohio State are the only two teams in the Big Ten without a conference loss. In fact, the Wolverines and Buckeyes are the only Big Ten teams to have fewer than two losses within the Big Ten.

When fifth-year senior Anton Campbell visited Michigan as a high school senior, his host told him exactly how his career in Ann Arbor would unfold.
Darnell Hood, the then-freshman who became a special teams aficionado himself, had gone through a similar transition during his time as a Wolverine, and he envisioned the same path for Campbell.
Campbell was being recruited by Illinois, Nebraska and Michigan to play running back, the position he starred at in O'Fallon, Miss.

What has the college football world come to? The No. 2 team in the nation has lost three straight weeks. A Catholic college not named Notre Dame is undefeated. A traditional basketball powerhouse (Connecticut) is currently in the BCS top 25 for the first time in school history. And, oh my goodness, Michigan ran a trick play!
The soap opera that is the college football season gets more unpredictable with each passing week, so for making my picks, I'm just going to use a dartboard.
