In lieu of the spring game, Michigan football practices indoors

ANN ARBOR -- There was no spring game this year, but that didn't stop Michigan from hitting the practice field.

The football team moved things indoors on Saturday afternoon for a closed scrimmage attended only by families of players and coaches, and recruits on weekend visits.

It was a compromise for canceling the annual spring game, typically open to the public, scheduled for Saturday night at Michigan Stadium. The school cited weather concerns for the cancellation, with temperatures in the 40s, wind and rain in the forecast.

"Everyone was hyped up about the spring game, then all of a sudden it was cancelled because of the weather conditions," tight end Nick Eubanks said.
