I'm busy putting together a collage of items and impressions from spring practice. If you have any sound bites, snippets, or video clips from the last three weeks that made you sit up and take notice, feel free to email them or post 'em in the comments. I'll try to hit the highlights and put together a little digest.
In the meantime, the spring game is upon us, and I wanted to let you know that if you aren't going to the game but still want to follow along, Michael Rothstein at the FWJG will be live blogging the game over at Irish Insights.
In addition, the crew over at UND.com have set up a Scrimmage Central which will feature weekend blog updates and streaming audio from the game itself.
The game will feature the offense versus the defense (as opposed to splitting the team into two full squads), and thus will be using a unique "scoring system" to accumulate both offensive and defensive points.
Using this system, the Hawaii Bowl would have been like 196-42.
Offense Defense 1-

Call for Pictures. As we've done for blue-gold games past, feel free to email us your blue-gold photos from the weekend and we'll string them together into a slide show. Snap away.
