Inclement Weather Expected Saturday for Mott Spring Game
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan Athletic Department has been following the weather map and conditions that are expected for Saturday (April 14) during the Mott Spring Game presented by PNC Bank and the "Battle at the Big House" men's lacrosse game against Ohio State. The radar shows a 60-percent chance of thunderstorms.
"We are concerned about the weather conditions that are expected in Ann Arbor at the time of our scrimmage and lacrosse game," said Rob Rademacher, U-M's associate athletic director for facilities and operations. "We will cancel the events at the stadium if the safety of our fans, players and staff is compromised by the weather. Cancellation is a possibility given the reports we have received from local weathermen and from radar."
The athletic department will make a final decision on whether or not to cancel the events held at Michigan Stadium around 6 a.m. on Saturday.
If weather causes cancellation, the football team will hold its final spring practice indoors at Al Glick Field House. The scrimmage will not be open to the public because of space limitations but will still be broadcast on Big Ten Network.
The men's lacrosse game between Michigan and Ohio State will be played at Michigan Stadium or move indoors to Oosterbaan Field House adjacent to Schembechler Hall. The game is free to the general public and will be played at 2:30 p.m.
Fans should check MGoBlue.com for updates on Saturday's Mott Spring Game and the "Battle at the Big House." Listen to AM 1050 WTKA, WWJ and 97.1 FM The Ticket for updates on whether or not the events will take place on Saturday at Michigan Stadium.
Just got a UM Athletic Dept text. Thought some of you might be interested.
Go there, like the page, and get linked to another page where you can enter info to win a catered suite for 20 to the spring game as well as other packages. Pretty cool opportunity.
Also, if an MGoBlogger wins it, we so need to set up a meet-up for a few choice MGoBloggers to attend.
As you may or may not be aware, the spring game this year is Saturday, April 14th. I'm sure like me, you all want to be in attendance to see some of our early enrollees and whether Rocko can snap the ball straight yet.
What you may not be aware of is that the following day, April 15th, there is a great charity event in Ann Arbor that will get you a run through the tunnel onto the field! If you've never had a chance to step onto the turf at the Big House, now's your chance. More information on the event is available at http://www.thebighousebigheart.com/.
The great thing about the event is that any chairty organization can use it to help gain support. When you sign up, you'll be asked to select a charity you're running for from a dropdown list. I would personally like to suggest the Book Industry Charitable Foundation. Formerly the Borders Foundation, the binc now supports book industry employees everywhere in times of hardship. If you don't want to run, there are other ways to get involved or help on the binc site.
But no matter who you choose to run for, it's a great opportunity to do some good and get an experience you may never have had. Run through the tunnel! Hit the field!
