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?

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?

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!

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.

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.

 I had a dream last night ( I blame the BTN for replaying last years OSU / Michigan game and the 05 game) I was at "The Game" this year and I got there late into the 4th quarter and Michigan was up 63 to 35. When i walked into the stadium with all the noise I thought Ohio was up but, then I saw all the Maize n Blue. Let's see if I'm Psycic or Psycotic!

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.

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.
