At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
12:00pm on BTN, for those of us stuck in our respective cities that aren't Ann Arbor. Hope everyone up north has a safe, dry and very exciting day.
Just cracked open my first Shiner Bock of the day,
Mathis, who is visiting Nebraska, has apparently named a new leader. It shouldn't be too hard for the mgocommunity to guess which school it is.
It would seem that when Brian said:
Usual disclaimers about a long way to go apply. Mathis might be one of those kids who gets excited about everybody—he's already committed to and decommitted from($) Washington.
he was right on the mark...
For those of us outside the country or without BTN does anyone know of a streaming option? There was a live stream couple of years ago but none last year.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Despite earlier weather reports, the University of Michigan Athletic Department has decided to proceed with plans to host the 2012 Mott Spring Game presented by PNC Bank and the "Battle at the Big House" men's lacrosse game at Michigan Stadium today (Saturday, April 14). The football scrimmage and lacrosse game are free to the public, but the University has teamed with C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in a fundraiser for the new hospital.
"The reports have improved overnight and we felt that it was appropriate to prepare for the football and lacrosse games at Michigan Stadium," said Rob Rademacher, associate athletic director for facilities and operations.
Fans are asked to use caution because of the weather reports. Michigan will proceed with the originally scheduled plan at Michigan Stadium, but if lightning or thunder comes within six miles of the stadium, the spring game will be cancelled immediately for the safety of the fans and players. The regular-season lacrosse game will follow NCAA rules when it pertains to weather delays.
The gates to Michigan Stadium will open at 9 a.m. The fourth annual alumni flag football game will start with introductions at 10 a.m. Following the conclusion of the alumni game, Team 133 will take the field for warm-ups at approximately 11:30 a.m. The final spring practice and scrimmage will begin at noon and will be broadcast nationally by the Big Ten Network. Immediately following the conclusion of the Mott Spring Game, the Michigan and Ohio State men's lacrosse teams will begin warm-ups. The "Battle at the Big House" is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.
