Ohio State and Michigan don’t have enough to talk trash about. It’s April. Football season is four months and change away. That didn’t stop Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller from trolling Michigan. The Wolverines’ spring game brought out about 15,000 fans to Michigan Stadium. The Buckeyes’ spring game attracted 61,058.
And better yet, if you’re a Buckeye fan, Ohio State charged $5 to attend. Michigan charged nothing.
Michigan’s attendance paled in comparison to other big schools (via cleveland.com):
Penn State Saturday, 72,000 (free, plus free autograph session)
Tennessee Saturday 66,548 (free)
Nebraska Saturday 61,772 ($10)
Ohio State Saturday 61,058 ($5, price originally $20 and $12)
Florida State Saturday 36,500 (free)
Florida Saturday 35,834 ($5)
Other big schools yet to play their spring game include:
Alabama April 19
Michigan State April 26
