Don't get your hopes up. He wants to play QB...Michigan wants him more for WR.
Queme los Barcos!
The University of Michigan Football Team will wrap up its spring practices with their *FREE* annual spring game, pinning the Maize and Blue against each other in competition. Coach Rodriguez, the Michigan Athletic Department, and Michigan Student Assembly Athletic Relations Committee want as many students to come as possible!
Everyone can tailgate that day before the game, but there will be tons of other activities going on that day, such as:
Michigan Marching Band, Dance Team, and Cheerleaders: Always an important part of Michigan Tradition, it has been too long since everyone got together for a round of "The Victors." Come join in the festivities.
Locker Room Tours: Fans can tour and take photos in the Michigan team locker room from 8-10 a.m. Each locker will be set up with player uniforms and will look exactly the way that it does on game day. Fans will exit the locker room at the spot where Go Blue is painted at the top of the tunnel.
Former Players Flag Football Game: Prior to the final practice, former Michigan football greats will participate in a flag football game. Gary Moeller will coach the maize squad and Jerry Hanlon will coach the blue team. The one-hour alumni game will begin with player introductions at 10 a.m.
There will special activities for students such as:
*4 students will be selected to kick field goals and win prizes
*2-4 students will have the chance to be a PA announcer for a drive
*25-30 students will get the opportunity to hold the "Go Blue" banner as the team runs out on the field
*Text promotion during the game, allowing everyone to pick a play Michigan will run.

Stay tuned for more details about student involvement, giveaways, competition between students and football players, and more!
What the hell is all this ****? Doesn't Rich realize Michigan's long tradition of fan non-involvement and Michigan's storied hatred of fun? Does he realize that this may actually sell the program and lock in kids at an early age? Does he realize that the fanbase may actually have energy?
What a fool! Fire this man right now!
My first thought is that Michigan isn't the South and people here will have better things to do than show up for a spring football game by the tens of thousands, but then again I could be wrong...
Ann Arbor could be the South!

So everybody grab your shades
