Due to a lack of depth, Michigan's spring game on Saturday wasn't an actual game. Just like last year, it was merely a controlled scrimmage. While the offense was declared the winner by a score of 17-0, that score wasn't based on an actual game that took place.
In addition to the format, the fact that Denard Robinson only played for one series made it tough to get a good read on what happened on Saturday. The coaches wanted to get backups Devin Gardner and Russell Bellomy more reps, so Robinson didn't see much action.
Bellomy led the second-team offense for most of Saturday. He completed six of his nine passes and had 40 yards on the day. Gardner, on the other hand, led the first-team offense after stepping in for Robinson. He completed only two of his seven passes for 36 yards and one interception.
The two touchdowns for the offense came from running back Thomas Rawls. He rushed for 42 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 10 carries and drew quite a bit of praise from coaches and teammates after the game.
An estimated crowd of 25,000 people attended Saturday's spring game.
