I was recently discussing/prognosticating about U-M's upcoming season with some friends, and a frightening scenario came up in conversation, a scenario that i think we all need to be prepared for.
M goes 6-6/7-5 with Tate playing most of the year and Denard seeing snaps here and there; but Tate does not really impress and is mostly just adequate while he relies on the running game. M loses to OSU, ND, and MSU, amongst other foes.
In this case will we see a wide open QB race next fall/spring with Gardner/Forcier being the main players? What would it take for Tate to crush doubt about him being the starter in 2010?
I am merely trying to keep Mgoblog active and in check. Cautious optimism is great; but we also have to be prepared for suckage, just in case.
