The sad part is you don't even have to be fast paced to run the quick WR throw. For example if its part of your offense on every run play the WR assumes he's going to get the ball based on defensive alignment. It's up to the QB to see it and make the throw. Michigan could take all the time it wanted getting to the line and still throw the quick pass if it was built into the offense. Sadly it's not.
Mike Spath points out that doing an interview for the official site is a pretty good indicator he'll be back.
