Michigan Spring Game Open Thread (BTN remix)
As someone who watched it live, you're gonna love James Ross.
I was also there live, but have a dumb tendency to watch particular players on random plays, thus missing key action. "Hey, let's watch Brennan Beyer on this play and see how he does... oh, the play went to the other side. I now have no info. on anh of the other performances."
Even so, I saw Ross stick his head in and make a crack on play at least.
I hate Jon Jansens tie
Report at ESPN says Hoke said in his presser that Toussaint would be back for the opener
My question is why can't we have great turn out for a spring game?
Because it's a glorified practice played in shit weather.
Was there any game last season colder than the Spring Game today?
Regardless, it's a practice and not a game. It's not even a good practice because they are trying to avoid providing any insight into how the team actually runs in order to avoid game film. I don't really feel it reflects negatively on the Michigan faithful to fail to attend te spring game. It's cool that Alabama and the SEC teams fans show up for the games but the fact that we don't show up for a bs promotional event isnt an indictment of our fans but theirs.
if they did something special for the fans on top of the game. In 2010 they let us walk through the locker room. It seems to me that they're not stressing about the lack of a huge crowd.
but that was in Columbus. No home game was that cold.
in the past, but snow and rain in the fucking forecast keeps people home if they have to drive a ways.
Forcier's true freshman year. That's the last time I believe we had decent weather. Pretty large turnout (50K+) for that one.
That seems like a long time ago, back when we had high hopes for Forcier, Rodriguez, etc.
Largest spring game crowd in Michigan history at 50,000. The last really nice day was 2005 where Lloyd Carr caught a touchdown pass on the last play of the game. There have been some really embarassing attendance numbers like 5,500 in 2007. Since MGoBlue didn't bother to give an attendance estimate, I say there was a good 30,000.
Last year and 2011 were pretty low at 25K because people were spooked by the weather forecasts. I know better by now. Everytime, every freaking time before the spring game starts the weather suddenly gets better.
Next year SHOULD be a real game format. I hope.
I think it got colder as the day went on.
Doesn't ohio have the spring game attendance record? Fuckers. We must beat it!
I thought i saw an estimate of about 15k this year. Regardless i drove in from the chicago area and it was f'ing cold, but it was a good time.
Annarbor.com reported that number. It was pretty empty. The weather was awful. I was there.
Yeesh I am a bad estimater. I was there and the only bad weather was the temp.
Will Cam Gordon or Brennen Beyer start?
Uhhhhhh, Im here for the gangbang?
Let's go Blue!!!
Question: Is Derrick Green on campus yet or is he still in highschool?
HS. You need to up your addiction to mgoblog
He's still in high school, but he did visit about a week ago, I think.
Guy in front of me wouldn't believe me when I said he wasn't on campus yet even when I showed him the roster.
Haha, no. I wasn't at the game. I just didn't know if he enrolled early or not.
Evidence of how many fans forget that these are, you know, kids, who go to school and stuff.
He is wearing #62
Nice that we had to wait 10 minutes for Ohio spring game overflow.
It's not freakin' live, edit that crap!
MICHIGAN in this one.
How can you make a pick without knowing the spread? Rookie.
GEORGEOUS AL BORGES!
I am ready for some football! Happy!
Shave the head.
Al lol Al. You just said David Norfleet. And you knew your forgot his name before you said it.
2 Norfleets on the field AT THE SAME TIME!
But it started 13 minutes late so it'll probably run late.
I started late so it's only 9:45 on my DVR...
They did interviews for the last 20 minutes. That and starting late, they either edited out a lot or our practice was REALLY short compared to Ohio State's.
Does anyone know if Derrick Green played in the game?
Nope. He didn't even suit up.
Yes. He had four touchdowns and picked off two passes.
Well placed & well said.
