- Traditional Scoring System – The spring game will feature a standard football scoring system. Wow this is huge, they totally didn't do that last year. Or the year before. Or maybe not, I still don't know what "traditional scoring system" means or if it even matters? The Tigers will also showcase a few drills - I've heard their sponsorship with DeWalt is lucrative.

Let's dive into the video breakdown
Wide receiver J'Mon Moore has been replaced...
...with a bobble-head doll, let's see if anyone notices
Senior linebacker Michael Scherer...
... will be leading stretching lines.
Wide receiver Nate Brown...
...can catch the ball when not in pads.
There's a bunch of other highlights cut in there too, cut together like a 90's MTV music video.
I can already feel my excitement rising.
