A spring game is when there are two known teams: Blue vs White/Maize in a game format that is subject to a few tweaks.
A spring scrimmage is a game-like substance with a harebrained scoring system, no known teams and the scoring on the board is Offense vs Defense or a Blue vs Maize. But nobody knows who the hell is on what team or if they just put that up there to get ooohs and ahhhs.
A spring practice is when no score is kept whatsoever.
Michigan had scrimmages in 2007 (42-41 White), 2010 (49-37 Blue), 2011 (14-7 Blue) and 2012 (17-0 Blue). No game since 2001 when John Navarre led White to a 21-7 win over Blue.

Brandon can't do much in the on-field action entertaining department. Then again, he pretty much is a coach so I am surprised that these spring events have been getting worse each year.
IIRC, prior to RR talking about wanting to break Bama's spring game attendance record in 2009, nobody thought anything much of a spring game around here. I was at the 2007 one. That sure as hell wasn't a game. Had a wonky scoring system, but that was about it.
Here are my spring game records. These are the most recent results of what I could find in the google archives.
I'd love to see a game. Would be neat. But there were game formats in 1997 and 1998 the attendance SUCKED. Weather plays a huge factor.
Spring game is football's version of the whole Midnight Madness craze. Honestly, I rather have the spring game be just a regular Schembechler Hall practice without all the bells and whistles if it means having the results Basketball has had since they did away with the Michigan Madness thing they tried in 2009-10.

Hell, 1997 was a spring game and they had 2,000 people. You read that right. 2K.
The spring game tradition here is not giving a shit about the spring game. I can't even put together a complete spring game history for my superguide because the University doesn't keep any record of the event. The results or non-results I have are google news archive searches.

Okay, I'm still waiting for the part where DB doesn't want fans to spend money at Michigan Stadium?
I was hoping this was some kind of conspiracy theory thread.
Attendance for these spring games has never been great. Mostly due to the weather. The 1997 game had 4,000 people. Not 40,000. 4K.
This in part due to crap promoting and the thing not even being a real spring game. Go back and look at Michigan's Spring Game history. Since 1990, they've cancelled it four times, haven't kept score in 13 of them.
Very frustrating to say the least. Seeing as how every big time program has a spring game. Whether it be a true game or a crazy scoring system where 1st downs are 2 points etc. etc.

Nebraska makes their spring games fun.
They draft teams up and actually keep records.
The last game format was 2001 IIRC. I don't think there has been severe depth problems like there are now for 13 years.
Obviously the weather plays a HUGE factor in attendance. 2009 was an estimated 50,000 which was believed to be a record for Michigan Football.
They could try a little harder to make it more fun for the fans. Even if they get one of those ridiculous score systems that go up into the 70s like the 2009 one did.

The evolution of the color Maize here has been interesting. Through the years it's been getting brighter and brighter. I like the Maize brought by adidas. It's modern and pops out.
adidas is here to stay. I guarantee it. With notre dame gone, Michigan is the undisputed top school wearing adidas.

Sweeping state en route to a B1G Championship.
The night they clinched the title against minnesota was one of celebration for me. Them winning it outright was just icing on the cake. A championship is a championship.
Also great seeing Morgan teary eyed hoisting the B1G Championship trophy after a win over Flanders and his candy striped bunch.
The win over wisconsin on the road was just incredible. The home win over iowa to make it two straight top-10 wins was when I was thinking "this year could be special" and when they won up at state was when I knew this would be a special year.
What a way to turn things around after a rough start and losing a preseason All-American. Not to mention two first round NBA draft picks.
How many teams can claim they lost three from their starting 5 that got them to the Final Four the year prior, and still dominate their conference and make another deep run in the NCAAs? I love this team. Can't wait for next season.

Now I have to turn around, go freeze my ass off and act like I give a shit about a spring game next weekend that is going to be a disaster to watch. But hey, at least the DL that can't get a pass rush will make the OL held together by strings look better!
I love Football and the team. But I really rather not think about something that is going to make me angry.

Whoever is mad about this game needs some perspective.
My exact words when I found out McGary was out for the season: "welp, NIT".
Yeah, no. Michigan only went 15-3 in the best conference in the country, 2-1 against state, 2-0 against ohio, wins in places Michigan hasn't won in YEARS such as madison, columbus. Oh, and that little stretch where Michigan beat 3 top-10 teams in a row for the first time ever.
Michigan won the B1G outright for the first time since 1985-86. They ignored the past failures here of outright B1G Champions getting high seeds and went all the way to the Regional Final in the "Region of Death".
I'll take this kind of season every year.

Honestly, I'm terrified of the opener for Football.

Practices were off limits. But there has been a football spring game every single year since 1951 (1995 and 2003 were cancelled, however).
All of them were open to the public except the infamous 2008 game held at Saline HS because of Michigan Stadium major renovations. It was invite-only due to the 1K seat stadium hosting it and the obvious hoards of people that would've showed up to check out the new offense.
