Michigan To Place Hashtag On Field For Spring Game

Friday April 13th, 2012

The University of Michigan will adorn their field with #GOBLUE in two places for Saturday's spring game, according to the Associated Press.

The affectation is commonly referred to as a "hashtag", and it is frequently used on Facebook and Twitter. Michigan is attempting to better reach its more wired following. The game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.

The Wolverines believe themselves to be the second team to use such art. Mississippi State painted #HAILSTATE in the endzone for their game with Ole Miss.
