Michigan: QB Tate Forcier
Redshirt junior Nick Sheridan and fellow true freshman Denard Robinson will also get a chance to win the starting job, but while Sheridan was laid up with a broken leg and Robinson was finishing high school, Forcier was leading the Wolverines' offense during spring practice. That gives the San Diego native a huge edge going into camp. But can Michigan improve on last year's 3-9 record with such a young quarterback? If the offensive line improves, it can. Also, don't be surprised if another true freshman winds up contributing to the offense. Tiny tailback Vincent Smith was a blur during spring practice, and his speed could inspire some creativity from Michigan coaches. Of course, they'll probably be a little busy prepping Forcier for the pressure cooker that is starting for the Wolverines. "You get nervous as a coach when you talk about possibly playing true freshmen anywhere, particularly at quarterback," Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said at Big Ten media day. "But I have all the confidence in the world that our coaches and Tate will put the work in to get ready."
