Obviously spring games don't mean a whole lot, but it's kind of embarrasing when schools like PSU, Nebraska, and Ohio draw 50,000 plus. It would be a great tool for recruiting. The way to get a respectable amount of people to show up would be to have it a few weeks later in the spring in order to get warmer weather, making it a true game, better advertising (many of my friends don't even know that there is a Spring Game), and by having other events going on throughout the day such as locker room tours, autograph sessions with guys like Charles Woodson, Lloyd Carr, Desmond Howard, a youth football clinic etc.
Don't know how to embed tweets, but its all over twitter, including from the Panthers' official account. Should be a good signing for them
Jabrill talked to Woodson during the game. Didn't see this posted.
Only in Ohio. You would think they would have more important issues to deal with.
College athletes in Ohio would not be considered employees under state law, under changes to the state’s budget review made by a legislative committee on Monday.
Notre Dame and Northwestern games...then the scrimmage replay.
12, 2 and 4p.
From MGoBlue release-
The University of Michigan Athletic Department in conjunction with Penn State University, television partner ESPN and the Big Ten Conference have announced that the Oct. 11 football game at Michigan Stadium will be televised in primetime. The conference game will be played at 7 p.m. EDT, and televised nationally on either ESPN or ESPN2.
This will be the third night game in the history of Michigan Stadium and the first against a Big Ten Conference opponent. The previous two primetime contests came against Notre Dame in 2011 and 2013, both victories for the Wolverines.
ESPN also televised Michigan's first two home night games, generating large audiences for both. ESPN averaged 8,653,000 viewers (a 5.3 HH US rating) for the 2013 telecast and 7,541,000 viewers (a 4.5 HH US rating) for the 2011 matchup.
"The night game atmosphere created by our fans has been electric and we expect that same type of energy for our first-ever conference night game against Penn State," said Brady Hoke, the J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Football Coach. "Our players really enjoy playing in primetime at Michigan Stadium."
This is the second night game that has been announced for the 2014 season. Michigan will play the final game in the long-standing series with Notre Dame on Sept. 6 in primetime. The game between the two winningest programs in college football will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. EDT from Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind.Additional primetime games can be designated during the early selection process by the networks
