Michigan Friday: No April Fools Jokes Today - Michigan Spring Game Day/Night!

Any time Michigan is in their game jerseys and playing in the Big House it's a good day.  Yes, it's just the Spring Game but we will take it in the middle of the off season. 

Today is a bit of a unique experience for the Wolverines, they will be playing on a Friday and with a 6:00 start.   The Big Ten Network will cover the first hour on TV live and then move the rest of the broadcast to the internet. 

I'm very interested in watching a few things:

  • QB play, who is standing out?
  • LB play, are they going to be a negative in this very good defense?
  • Is the offensive line dominate, can they build on the Citrus Bowl performance?
I don't think you can get a ton out of watching the Spring Game but hopefully a few guys step up at our needed positions and NOBODY gets hurt.

A side note:  it will be interesting to see how they use Peppers today, LB, Safety, CB?  I don't expect to see him on offense at all. 

I expect we will see a little bit of Don Brown's defense but pretty basic stuff.

Michigan received a commitment from Jacksonville Trinity Christian FB/LB yesterday in Chase Laster.  Chase is pretty much an under the radar type of player and not ranked by Rivals or any of the other services at this point.    Chase is 6'2 and 238 pounds and sounds like another hybrid player that Jimmy can look at for a couple different positions. 

More information to come on him as the recruiting services look to catch up. 

  • Michigan has also added another PWO, this time a QB/WR/Athlete from California named Peter Bush.  Pete is 6'1 and 215 pounds and played his ball at Corona Del Mar in Newport Beach.   He is expected to join the team this summer.      

Enjoy the day and I will be interested in reading your take on "what your eyes told you" in the comments section. 

Happy Birthday Bo!
