spoiler alert: i linked this
Is there a live feed of the spring game somewhere?
you da man!
Does this feed continue through the actual spring game, or is it only a feed of the flag football game? I know the latter wouldn't make much sense, but just checking.
I hope someone tapes the whole spring game and puts it up on youtube like last year.
Hey guys, the official University Athletics website appears to show the entire game live with video and audio feed.
Is that link working for anyone yet?
It's an embedded asx file. You can't watch it on Firefox. It's a windows media player format.
It's working for me in VLC now.
I'm watching it right now on firefox (flag football game)
Or maybe I'm not
its working for me in firefox but i let it buffer for a little bit
pretty decent fan turnout
RichRod didn't know all the words to the fight song. I find that kind of funny.
Honestly, I don't like that very much.
By the way: What makes you say this, anyway?
He led the alumni team in singing it after their game. He only knew the "Hail's" and "Go Blue" at the end.
all who showed up but didn't parcitipate playing flag fb? Saw a awful lot of people out there on the field.
can someone put up the exact address to type into windows media player, open url?
I copied and pasted the address from the IE browser that doesn't work into WMP and it's still not working. thanks.
Uh, I don't know if it's working anymore. It was working for the flag football game, but after the game ended it started playing music and showing information screens, like saying to go to the baseball and softball games this afternoon. But then that stopped, and now I'm getting nothing. Did this happen for anyone else?
Is is coming back on for the Spring Game, or was it only for the Flag game?
Is it not working for everybody else too?
i copied and pasted the link into WMP open URL but it took a long time to connect and it still wont open.
It's working for me now...
just started working for me, tried opening it three times
works for me
I don't think the M coaches want to make it easy on out-of-town coaching opponents to monitor the spring game (even if it is watered down).
but no video--I don't think they were planning on doing video, for whatever insane reason.
and some PPT presentation on the spring game. hopefully it'll go to live video inside the Big House. Can't wait!
Yeah they are showing the information screens because the video is the jumbotron feed and thats what the jumbotron is showing until the spring game.
If you can't get the mlive feed to work try the one from mgoblue
It's just radio right now. They just had Jason Forcier on being interviewed by Sam Webb.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand live video from inside the stadium. Waiting for people to come out of the tunnel.
mgoblue link is working again:
holy crap, tate and the offense looks really good in their first series.
Yep. The kid can really play. Those were some nice wheels on the TD run.
see offense score. they're playing against 2nd team defense though.
Tate hasn't missed a pass yet, and looks pretty elusive on his runs. Just a spring scrimmage, but I'm starting to get excited.
Cone with the 50 yard run against the first team D. Uh oh...
coner almost went the distance, haha, looked like dual threet vs wisconsin. fooled the camera man too.
stevie brown fucked up on that long cone run. god dammit.
I like the way Smith prepares for tackles. He seems to get in a position where if he's going to get tackled he keeps moving forward. Very quick.
Yep. I was just going to post the same thing. I saw this from him the couple times I played in HS.
Also should help him avoid getting concussed every other play.
I don't see him out there. Is he injured?
I think they showed him receiving one of the Iron Wolverine awards from Barwis and he wasn't wearing pads. Not sure if he's injured or anything though.
was on the field.
Yeah, just not in right now.
God damn did Tate just make something out of nothing on that one! That's a HUGE difference from last year.
Drive was pretty impressive...
40,000 to 45,000 people. Wow.
Are they going to do this later or not?
They haven't said for sure. All they've said is that there will be some "wrinkles" later, whatever that means.
Mike Martin is being held out of game today. Injury, not sure what it is but it is minor and won't be long term.
Is RVB injured too?
Brown just smoked Emilien.
Wow. Brown with some top end speed.
I hope this kid can go ONE season go us...
Somuch for the tap!
Why are we passing so much?
My guess is because it is more difficult to get the timing at game speed in practice than it is for running. Also, some of Tate's passes have been reads.
I'd like to see a couple more down field balls for Tate. Other than that, I'm pretty pleased with what I've see, safety aside.
I bet you're really happy now.
Like that one. Right on the money!
Who the hell is Jack Kennedy? Furrha should be out there.
That was a nice throw.
Furrha wasn't an early enrollment, was he?
I saw a Furrha on the sidelines in a sling today. Is there more than one?
This guy lives in my hall. He's a sophomore walk-on, spends most of his time in the weight room, really nice guy...couldn't really tell you how he plays football, tho.
This offense, regardless of who is running it, is so far beyond where it was last year that it's amazing. Like I'm having difficulty putting it into words amazing.
They are doing very well, especially passing. Either the offense is pretty good or our defense is just terrible.
I don't think it says a whole lot about the defense either way. The first defense has looked good against the second offense and the first offense has torched the second defense. That's about what I would have expected. What I was more getting at was the lack of mistakes.
I thought he was going to be a starter?
there was your down field pass. nice touch
Wow again. Great pass.
Now thats what I'm talking about! Nice catch by Tree...
Who is 31? He just looked like Stevie Brown last year.
Hart predicting 8 or more wins.
With the added talent, and a drastic reduction in the offensive mistakes and turnovers, I don't think that'd be unreasonable. I don't think there is anything to suggest that we won't see the typical second year improvement (if not more) than Rodriguez's teams have historically had.
The defense doesn't look particularly good though. At least they are making most of their tackles.
Yeah, but the defense is probably what is furthest behind because of the coaching change. With their experience I'm pretty confident they'll catch up.
Nice little thing about Tate's game is that he's effectively leading the receivers on the swing passes. That's something that never happened last year, which resulted in the receivers losing forward momentum, if not turning around altogether. I had forgotten about that until I just saw Kennedy put it behind the receiver on the swing.
That said, Kennedy throws a nice ball down field.
I think Forcier has looked really good today. He did have one big huge true freshman mistake though. Which, well, he's a true freshman, he's going to make some of those.
Michigan fans...GO BLUE!
we can get 80,000 people for next year's spring game.
Nice play by Mathews to hang onto that pass.
Nice throw by Coner. Our QB's are throwing the ball downfield pretty effectively.
Nice touch on the fade by Tate and nice catch by Mathews for the TD!
nice throw by coner....
some passes go to Koger,Webb or Moore. Something along the line of...down the seam.
That's not an element that Rodriguez has traditionally employed in his offense.
Koger's touchdown vs. Wisconsin last year would like to disagree with you. Even the announcers we mentioning how little the TEs were being used so far, I think it would be nice to get that element involved too. But maybe they're just trying to not to overwhelm Tate.
He could be the next Darren Sproles.
He's a fast little guy, no doubt about that.
need some passes over the middle.
I'm lovin them.
the offense is looking functional, even cone....the defense though makes me nervous. very pourous.
Our QB's are taking care of the ball.
have they ran the first offense vs first defense at all?
Our D does look pretty bad right now, but we are missing a lot of starters-Warren, Martin, Van Bergen.
uggg they still have had some poor tackling.
No Feagin today? Kind of surprised not to see him at all.
There are a lot of people who aren't playing.
He wanted that TD
Yep, great play from Tate. I'm really impressed with him today.
Missed tackle and then a facemask.
Brown being Brown.
Tate looks great on the run.
considering he doesn't have to worry about getting hit. he seems very fluid though considering the circumstances.
tates bday = aug 7, 1990. i feel so old.
We have had a lot of chances at picking it off. We just can't convert.
Why is he allowed to be hit?
I like how Kennedy isn't even on the roster for this game and he took about 25% of the snaps. http://www.mgoblue.com/football/page.aspx?id=66478
I wonder why. I would have given COner all of his snaps. Anyway...nice showing by the young man.
couldn't hit anyone. Kennedy did play decently, though. I think Tate, Sheridan, and hopefully Denard will be enough this year.
The offense looked good. The defense didn't, but they were missing at least 4 starters.
That little 8 yard scamper by Potempa was nice.
Who the hell is he? I've never heard of him.
I didn't catch the whole thing... only the last 10-15 minutes.... anyone know if this will make its way to torrents or youtube? If anyone could post links once they're available, that'd be awesome.
I know they will have some of the game at 10 tonight. I don't know if it's the whole thing or just highlights.
Kennedy > Cone. Forcier > Jesus.
I agree on Cone. He's supposed to be a pocket passer kind of guy, but his throwing motion looks just terrible. I wonder what the hell Carr saw in him? Maybe he liked the way he freestyled chicka chicka slim shady.
What's phase two?
