ANN ARBOR, MI. April 14, 2001 The Michigan football team competed in its Blue – White game on Saturday. The format was a modified game (with running clocks) and was held at Michigan stadium. I estimate that roughly 15,000 people attended. Items of note:

The offenses struggled most of the game including throwing 7 interceptions – most of which were simply bad decisions by the quarterbacks. No one QB really impressed anyone but it seems Navarre is in position to start next year. Michigan has a very good staff that has produced several pro quarterbacks in the last decade. It is likely that they will have the team ready at that position.

The defense was really flying around and hitting people. While the QB’s were primarily to blame for the 7 picks, the defense played very aggressive and deserves some credit. Hopefully this unit will be much improved this season, led by Cato June who returns from injury last season.

Kays, Ron and myself played the UM Golf course before the game. Kays pulled teeth. We managed to get an 8:10am tee time and finished the round at around 12:30pm – just enough time to pack up the bags and head over to the game.
