Spring Game Prediction Thread

A little history of the Spring game-

Last 10 Spring Games

2001    White 28   Blue 21
2002    White 27   Blue 17
2003    Cancelled Due to FieldTurf installation
2004    Blue 24     White 20
2005    Blue 34     White 18
2006    Blue 30     White 26
2007    White 42   Blue 41
2008    White 23   Blue 19   Invite-only held at Saline HS
2009    White 73   Blue 32
2010    Blue 49     Maize 37
2011    Blue 14     Maize 7

The Blue team leads the all-time series against Maize (formerly White) 27-26. They took the series lead back last season. Maize/White has won 3 out of the last 5, but Blue has won the past two.

The teams will be organized like last season. 1st team offense & 2nd team defense (Maize) vs 2nd team offense & 1st team defense (Blue).

My prediction: Blue 17  Maize 14. There will be one defensive touchdown.

Hope to see the receivers do well because that is a huge question mark heading into this season. Also want the DL to get some "sacks" (when you touch the QB, the play ends).

Your predictions/hope to see do well?

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.

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.

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.

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!!!
