Michigan Spring Game 2023 Preview

The Wolverines are trying to continue their recent success after winning back-to-back Big Ten titles in 2021 and 2022. Michigan was stellar on both sides of the ball last year, finishing in the top ten in the nation in points scored (40.4) and in points allowed (16.1 per game).

The Wolverines will be led on offense by quarterback J.J. McCarthy, who completed 64.6% of his passes last year for 2,719 yards, 22 touchdowns and five interceptions, and All American running back Blake Corum, who finished with 1,463 yards and 18 rushing scores in 2022. Corum won’t play in this scrimmage, though, as he’s too valuable to the team’s offense.

Michigan boasts quite a few returning players, including wide receivers Cornelius Johnson and Roman Wilson, who are expected to fill former wideout Ronnie Bell’s shoes. Head coach Jim Harbaugh and company also added several potential impact players via the transfer portal, highlighted by pass rusher Josaiah Stewart, who transferred to Michigan from Coastal Carolina after amassing 16.0 sacks over the last two seasons.

For its annual spring game, Michigan will divide into two teams: Team Maize and Team Blue. The Wolverines formed the rosters of both sides in unique fashion, holding a draft to determine which side players land on.

“It’s really really cool to see guys that haven’t played yet,” Wolverines defense coordinator Jesse Minter told Michigan Daily. “This is really the first time they might play in that environment, even though it’s not all the way it’s the closest thing we can simulate to a game between now and September.”

Expect Michigan’s coaching staff to take full advantage of the team’s first full-on game situation so far this spring.

“You’re in a game-day atmosphere, especially guys that haven’t played in a game-day atmosphere … just seeing how they react,” Michigan offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore said. “So that’s the biggest thing for us. … It’s seeing those young guys and seeing how they react in that atmosphere and just (letting) them all have fun.”

The weather forecast for the scrimmage calls for temperatures in the low 40s with a high of 50 degrees and a chance of rain showers.
