Re: Michigan Spring Game 2014: Scrimmage Results in More Questions Than Answers

I heard three cheers all day. One for Howard, Wheatley and Woodson, one for Howard's "touchdown", and one for Canteen's downfield catch (oh yeah, and one more for the guy who kicked the field goal for $300). Other than that; crickets....but I think a lot of that had to do with the way the day was laid out.
It was a confusing way to have a "Spring Game", in my opinion. The fans were taken out of it from the get go. No scoreboard, no clock, no PA announcer....nothing. I felt like I was at a Tigers Game during a rain delay.
Frankly, I just don't like the way the entire day was run. In my opinion, you'd like to have a gameday type setting for this. It looked like about 30,000 people showed up; but once the impression was given that this was going to be a glorified practice, people started leaving. I'd say a good 5,000 people left before they decided to start scrimmaging.
