The original plan called for Michigan to conclude spring practice with an intrasquad game April 16. But Wolverines coach Lloyd Carr said it won't be much of a game – unless fans like watching touch football.

"For all those people who want to see tackling in the spring game, don't come," Carr said. "But I hope you come Sept. 3 [for the opener against Northern Illinois]. Hopefully, we'll tackle that day."
