Fans watched the Michigan football team go through its final workout at Michigan Stadium, but those expecting a game left disappointed.
Earlier in the week Brady Hoke had announced that the spring “game” would consist of a typical practice followed by a scrimmage between the offense and defense. No score was kept and, in a bid to minimize potential injuries, special teams were not part of the proceedings.
But for a fan base still smarting from last season’s 7-6 start, the chance to see Michigan back on the field was a welcome sight.
Many were eager to see the new offense installed by Doug Nussmeier but instead saw some of the same problems that plagued the team last season—interceptions and a porous offensive line.
Despite the limited format of the scrimmage, the performance of some players gave fans hope that Michigan is in the midst of rebounding from last season’s November collapse.
