Spring Game Prediction Thread
I'm afraid I'm going to have to predict a loss for Michigan, even on their home turf. The combination of Denard Robinson and Jordan Kovacs are just too much to overcome, sadly.
this would suck... but what can you do?
the winning team scores more than the losing team.
if not the game will be indoors and closed to the public.
It will be fine.
Denard ties his shoes and stops throwing off his back foot. Also he's even faster.
"ties his shoes"
Me and a bunch of my buddies were going to take a trip to AA for the game like we do every year. But the weather looks aweful. Should we just stay and watch it on Big 10 network? Or say screw it and come down anyways? Thoughts?
Angelique tweeted a few minutes ago that if the weather is bad, they're moving the game indoors and closing it to the public. Up to you whether or not you want to gamble.
That would sure suck for anyone making travel plans
My buddy just left a couple hours ago from NY. That would suck.
I'm in the NY area also and had been thinking of going - never considered they might move it indoors.
It will still be televised on BTN regardless of outside or inside (which is probably why they're making the decision 6 hours before game time, so they know where to set up).
80 degrees and sunny.
The wings win tonight, and I have a horrible time at the wedding I'm going to tomorrow because I can't get drunk because I have to work on a bunch of projects for grad school on Sunday. WHOOO!
Ridicuous Overextrapolation: 81
Measured Rationalism: 0
That will cover Big Will alone.
Big Will will cover the spread by himself? SWEET!!!

Severe weather my ass. Give me a break, I sat through Michigan vs northwestern in 2006. The whole game. Through snow, sleet and rain while half the stadium made an early exit.
If people can't handle getting wet and cold, don't come.
It's more the sudden discharges of built-up static electricity from clouds to humans.
I did too but lightning is a different story. Considering the stadium is on top of a hill and everyone is on metal benches, you can't blame them for being cautious
I think it will be fine. What I'm looking at is scattered showers on the site I use.
2008 bro. I know, because I was there.
Michigan vs northwestern in 2006 was bad also. Both 2006 and 2008 had really shitty weather.
Is there and people need to prepare for the indoor possibility especially if they are coming in from a distance.
I think you mean 2008. There was no snow or sleet at the 2006 game although it wasn't particularly nice either.
I remember that game very well, as I left my poncho in the car. I was one of the few to stay the whole game
Devin shines and makes it clear we'll be seeing a lot more of him this year.
Man, those RichRod spring games sure had a lot of offense! Or did they not have a lot of defense?
Too soon man, too soon.
They were evaluation-point scrimmages. Not "scoring" as in games. But at least your comment gave me a chance to say that.
I predict that in Purdue's spring game all 22 of their starters will tear at least one ACL, and that Robbie Hummel is somehow included in that.
/I don't really want that to happen
So last season's opener was my first since moving back after 5 yrs in Arizona and it gets cancelled part way through. Now my first Spring game in even longer, and it could get cancelled too. I must be the bad luck charm. Sorry guys.
psychic or psychotic, but definitely a bad speller.
Coach Hoke wearing shorts is the only prediction I've got
a bubble screen for Heiko.
I hope we see a bubble screen to Heiko.
56 single Hoke points, 3 double Hoke points
Denard uses his powers to alter weather patterns and stop the rain, yet again becoming a hero to Michigan fans...
I won two of the "VIP" tickets in the #GOBLUE contest only to have the event be possibly cancelled.
On another note, why are you all predicting the spring game? It's the Alumni Flag Football game that is the exciting part of the day.
I'm predicting John Navarre will have 6 passes batted down at the line of scrimmage.
2 Passes to our old friend and tenured WR Taco Pants
No prognostication but I'm hoping to see some good stuff tomorrow. I want to see a crisp, efficient Denard passing game. I bet everyone is particularly interested in the D-line. I want to see how BWC and Jibreel look as the starting NT and DT. I want to see how Devin Gardner looks at WR. And I really want to see how the EE freshman play. Joe Bolden has been getting a lot of mentions in spring practice pressers and Jerrod Wilson too to a lesser degree.
I don't know if this has happened in the history of the "Spring Game" Tradition, but it hasn't in the last ten years so, I predict 24-24. Defensive Touchdown. Field Goals 100%. Lot of "meh" looking things that will be overreacted upon. 2nd year in the system brings even more to the table to learn. Hopefully the latter half of Spring practices were used to implement said "playbook additions", etc. and it won't necessarily be an overall pretty sight. Go Blue Go White.
Well atleast we'lll still be able to watch it. Would this hurt any swaying for recruiting?
Who will be this years Brink/Moudros? The guy that vaults from nothing to the talk of the town and only to fizzle out after the first fall practice.
How long does the spring game usually last? Is there a lot of stoppage and what not? Reason I ask is I have prior commitment later that night and am trying to decide if it's worth the drive in comparison to how much action I'd see.
Just wondering where'd u find these scores
It took me months to find them, I had to email people who work in the athletic department.
I can email you the complete history of spring game scores if you would like.
That, my friend, is dedication.
Michigan wins tomorrow!!!
the QB throwback to Gardner from Diggs.
Is this year like Jake Ryan was last year.
It's a 2 hours drive for me and my friends from Freeland (Saginaw, Midland, tri-cities-area). We've been to the last 3 spring games and got on to the field for one. What are the odds they move it indoors? Do you think we should risk it?
Dude I drive from Saginaw and it only takes me an hour and a half at most. I went out and spent $50 on tailgate food so I am hoping the game is not moved indoors. I am planning on being on the road by 8 and hopefully we get to park near the stadium for free. I quit parking at Pioneer 2 years ago. I can't believe they are charging $20 tomorrow.
Jerald Robinson will catch a touchdown.
My 6yr old son is so excited to go tomorrow. He wants to see the big house. I dont think i can tell him that we're not going. Its going crush him.
Just go!!! Noway would I disappoint a 6 year boy. I can't even say no to my 5 year old daughter who is crazy over Michigan
Joey Bosa will not commit
But it does not sound like it will be to Michigan. Seems to be in love with Ohio.
Meteorological grumble. From the presser: "The radar shows a 60-percent chance of thunderstorms." Radars do not see into the future, therefore this statement makes absolutely no sense. Come on, Leaders and Best, random intern writer. Leaders and Best.
Were going to make the 2 hour drive for the game. How many other chances do you get to sit field-side and watch Michigan? I've been to a bunch of games but the closest I've ever been is 19th row. But during the spring game we always sit right in front and one year we even got to go on the field..which was amazing. I'll be so pissed if it storms and is moved inside. But my buddy told me they're going to announce that at 6 am???? IDK if thats true or not. Worst comes to worst we get to eat on the man vs food sandwhich spot...the Ann Abor deli I believe? Either way I'm excited. I love AA! HAIL!!!
You're thinking of Maize and Blue Deli I believe.
So why would the weather matter to a real fan. Bring the tailgate equipment and let's practice.
That is very Un Hoke like. I'll be pointing at him.
Slightly OT but does Brian usually do a UFR for the spring game?
Lowest man always win.
Someone will tweet during the game, "Borges y u no call bubble screen? #GOBLUE" It will show up on the scoreboard.
which means Leveberry commits to FSU.
