Post Spring Game thoughts: offense

Lil'Jordan Humphrey (Will Gallagher/IT)

The offense focused on the passing game because of the paucity of healthy running backs and the staff’s desire to get Buechele and Ehlinger as many live fire reps as possible. Probably also to gauge how successful Orlando’s defensive installations were. And you might as well throw it around for the fans and recruits on hand.

Spring game notes, quotes, and observations – Orange 52 White 51

Shane Buechele (Will Gallagher/IT)

In Tom Herman’s first game coaching in front of a crowd and with a scoreboard at Royal-Memorial Stadium, the Orange team defeated the White team, 52-51.

The scoring was peculiar, with penalties taking points off the boards, big plays adding three points for the White or offense’s total, and turnovers or missed field goals adding to the Orange or defense’s total.

5 quick thoughts: Spring is in the air

It’s like 80 degrees right now in southeast Michigan, probably made for a nice day at the Big House where the Wolverines were holding their spring game. I’ll get out and enjoy myself in a moment, probably fire up the grill, but I was content to sit inside for the afternoon and watch Herman’s squad go at it.

T-minus 24 hours until kickoff of the Orange-White scrimmage from DKR and there’s a hint of momentum in the air. After Texas landed its quarterback for 2018, Casey Thompson of Southmoore (OK), his pledge may be the signal from the light Tower to all the ships (recruits) approaching Austin harbor. UT didn’t just get a Chris Leak-type passer for the next class, they also snagged a key recruiter in the race for talent in 2018.

The Junior Day was to create momentum and it did. The spring game should compound that momentum, and as you’ve seen in the other thread, Texas has a very nice list of RSVP’s for Saturday’s event. We could see a commit or two go down this weekend, but that’s not for certain.
