The Big House 

The University of Michigan Athletic Department has announced the Spring Game for the Wolverines. The date is April 14 with activities beginning at noon at The Big House (University of Michigan Stadium).

This will be the second spring football game for Coach Hoke as his staff and players showcase their early spring skills. After this year’s 11-2 record and Sugar Bowl victory, enthusiasm is particularly high with many of the fans and alumni see as the return of the “old” Michigan. The rich heritage and roots of University of Michigan football program have been returned to The Big House.

Fans are also looking forward to seeing Denard Robinson as he prepares for his final year at Michigan. National analysts have already listed Robinson as an early Heisman Trophy candidate. Last year his lighting speed combined with the new offense installed by the coaching staff to create an electrifying year. Additional attention will be focused on the highly touted defense which reemerged as a dominant force for the Wolverines, something they had been lacking in the last several years.

The Lamp Post Inn, an Ann Arbor hotel located less than two miles from the stadium will offer fans staying at the hotel either Friday or Saturday night a special price of 10% off all of their king and two queen bed units. Reservations at the hotel can be made at the Lamp Post Website http://www.lamppostinn.com . Use the promo code SPRINGGAME for the special rates.
