Spring Practice begins
Michigan held its first session of Spring Practice today. Photos of the Spring Practice are here and video can be found here (non-permanent link: 3/15/08 video). Coach Rodriguez stated that there are three objectives of Spring Practice: "One, obviously, is teach fundamentals, two, teach new schemes, and the third thing from the coaches' standpoint is find out who are the guys we can win with in the fall. Traditionally when you put in a new system, you go real slow. We'd rather be ugly early. I think we'll be all right. Our goal is to be ready (by the season opener) Aug. 30." Today was the first step on a long road. Go Blue!
