    Michigan football’s spring practice attracted a large crowd in Florida.

    Jim Harbaugh has certainly thrust his name into the headlines with some unique actions during the last few months. Most of those antics came on the recruiting trail with very few eyes on him, later hitting social media and blowing up the news cycle.

    Finally back on the field, the Michigan head coach must love having an audience for the first time since the Wolverines beat the Florida Gators in the Citrus Bowl, 41-7. Take a look at the massive sea of maize and blue that showed up to watch Michigan’s spring practice at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Thank the Bradenton Herald for the live look at “Michigan Mania” in the Sunshine State.

    Everyone showed up to show support for the Wolverines … even some more Wolverines. The Michigan men’s tennis team is in Bradenton, too, to watch their compatriots practice.

    Sam Webb, host of the Michigan Insider on WTKA, decided to take a quick survey of who exactly showed up at IMG to watch Harbaugh’s team.

    As ESPN’s Gerry Hamilton tweeted out, it looks as though the party is just getting started in Bradenton.
