Columbus, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller took potshots at Michigan fans for their apparent lack of support for their team’s spring game.
The two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year did not play the Buckeyes spring game Saturday but he took screen shots of the official attendance announcement from both Ohio State and Michigan’s spring game and posted it on his Twitter account.
The Wolverines drew just over 15,000 for its spring game on April 5 while the Buckeyes announced a crowd of more than 61,000 on Saturday. Miller did not add any comment.
Teams use spring game attendance as interesting metric to track. Today’s spring game varies from a intra-squad scrimmage to a controlled practice.
The return of Miller and others have brought high expectations for the Buckeyes in 2014, but Ohio State still falls behind Penn State in 2014 spring game attendance.
In Happy Valley, the James Franklin era kicked off in front of “an estimated 72,000,” per the school.
