Thursday Quick Hits: Spring Game Gets a Sponsor

  • PNC Bank is the “presenting sponsor” of the spring game and will specifically sponsor the locker room tours (6:30-8 p.m. on Friday and 7-9:30 a.m. on Saturday) and “Kick for Cash” promotion.  Part of the sponsorship money from PNC will go towards the “Michigan football interactive play area at the new C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.”
  • TomVH has a list of who is visiting for the spring game.
  • Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson are apparently pretty even right now at quarterback.
  • Kelvin Grady and Terrence Robinson are getting some time at running back.
  • Will Heininger has a torn ACL and could miss the entire 2010 season.
  • Vladimir Emilien and Jared Van Slyke might return from knee injuries next week.
  • Check out mgoblog for a full recap of Tuesday’s practice and press conferences.
  • The Michigan Daily profiled Zoltan Mesko.
  • The same restrictions implemented at the Ann Arbor Golf & Outing Club last year for football tailgates will not be changed for the 2010 season.  Lame.
  • Red Berenson did a Q&A with AnnArbor.com.
  • The semifinals of the Frozen Four are going to be played at Ford Field later today.  I will probably tune in for a bit just to see what the setup looks like, but I’m still way too bitter over Michigan not being there because of a BS call to watch for more than a minute or two.
  • After the new basketball practice facility is built and infrastructure work is done on Crisler Arena, Dave Brandon wants to completely renovate Crisler to make it a “modern arena.”  Sounds good to me.
  • The Sporting Blog remixed this year’s One Shining Moment video with Luther Vandross’ version of the song, and it just makes the whole thing a million times better.
  • Evan Turner and five Kentucky players have declared for the NBA Draft.

    Wonder how Tate is going to handle the competition and adversity if Robinson starts looking better. Unless Tate has matured in the last 12 months, I think shouting matches on the sidelines and missing study table will pale in comparison to what we could be in store for.

    Sean,

    I don’t think you are missing much at the Frozen Four this year, anyway. I want to write positive things about the experiment, but in truth I share the same bitterness you do about Michigan getting jobbed. Just the same, as a neutral observer now, the atmosphere sucks, the ice is bad, the seating is too far from the action and the bands can hardly be heard. I hope that they revert back to standardized arenas for such important future events. It would have been great having Michigan play in Detroit, but considering all of the other criteria, the viewing factor would be abhorrent. Still, I guess that would be more tolerable than listening to the insufferable idiots on ESPN wax on about how great BC and Wisconsin are.

    The silver lining was watching Miami melt down yet again in deer in the headlights fashion. Way to go, Enrico. I guess BC wasn’t going to leave it to officiating chance given the game was handed to them on a platter by your team. Nice embarrassment for the CCHA. Just proves that karma is never to be questioned and the wrong CCHA team was represented.
