Out of the Blue Episode 36: Drafting the Spring Game

Jared and Andrew select their teams ahead of Saturday’s “game.” Who wins?

NCAA Football: Michigan at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome Michigan Wolverine fans!

Remember when the Spring game was actually a game? Remember when coaches drafted and built teams to face each other? God I miss the Spring of 2017.

But alas, Jared and Andrew continue their Spring drafting tradition and team build to see who can gain the upper hand. Last year, Jared prevailed with dominant lines on both sides of the ball, but this year, the teams are much more evenly matched.

So much so that a kicker swings the draft. Check out the teams below and tell us who you think would win.

*For this exercise, we assumed all players currently on the spring roster were healthy and that CMU graduate transfer Mike Danna it’s more fun.*
