97.1FM just said that Threet is doubtful for Saturday and that both Nick Sheridan and Justin Feagin could play.
Concussion like symptoms...
... And I'm still going to watch the game this Saturday. I am a sadomasochist.
wait, where'd they get that Feagin could play? From the sound of things coming out the horse's mouth, the Coner might have a better chance to play.
The Coner will never play, that is why Feagin is practicing at QB again this week.
so wait...all of a sudden he learned the offense?!?!?! nooooo...couldn't be...
Argh. My brains are leaking out my ass after reading shit like this.
Feagin is backing up Sheridan because *there isn't anyone else*. Feagin might know only 1 play but that's probably 1 play more than anyone else on the team who could possibly be put in the game. (Notice that Cone probably knows more plays but is clearly just not going to be put in the game.)
This move does not say that Feagin is either good or competent. He's just less bad and less incompetent than all of the other options.
MAN Coner must be BAD! As bad as Sheridan is, David Cone is behind the true freshman who is behind Sheridan. I seriously have a hard time believing that.
i didn't say he's good. he's probably terrible, all isaid was that he knows the offense. so i guess the answer to your question "got it?" would be no...
please don't shoot ink at me, i'll try harder next time
The fact that Feagin is the backup QB this week does not mean that "all of a sudden he learned the offense". It means that Michigan is starting a walk-on QB and there is NO other guy to be the backup. What happens if Sheridan gets hurt? Does the offense just go on the field and mill around? Even if Feagin can only run 1 play, he's a better option that anyone else at QB if Sheridan were to go out of the game. This is a horrible situation for the football team. Pretending that Rodriguez and the coaching staff are somehow either incompetent or liars because they're between a rock and hard place and have to list Feagin at backup QB is just ridiculous.
... what they've been doing all season: "milling around."
I keeeed, I keeeed.
who is pretending that RR is incompetent? i think that feagin knows more of the playbook than what they're lading on to, he's just terrible. it's easier to say that he doesn't know the play book than saying that the kid can't throw ten yards without a stiff wind blowing at his back.
Or they choose to actually have someone play quarterback if Sheridan gets hurt, rather than snapping the ball to Molk's imaginary friend.
Henne's imaginary reciever friend = Tacopants... therefore,
Molk's imaginary QB friend = Chow Mein Knickerbockers? Burrito Shorts? Shish Kabob Slacks?
Feagin was taking some snaps at practice again? Who knows at this point.
I know one thing. Take the Gophers to cover.
Can we install the Navy offense in 2 days?
booing now, maybe Sherridan will get better.
I thought that meant we wanted the coaches to coach better? How will it help Sheridan?
..point there, my man.
Back to the drawing board.
darn it, now we're not going to win
feagin's stats- 300yds rushing/3 tds, 150yds passing/2tds. goes on to start the rest of his career, drafted 1st round by the packers, wins superbowl. yes, this is a happy day
In the UV today, Brian said that Threet is expected to play, as are Mike Williams and Sam McGuffie. Hopefully this is the correct news.
is from Big Ten blogger and sounds pretty confident that they will all play.
Before practice Wednesday, Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said that Steven Threet was "very, very questionable" for Saturday's game because the quarterback had not fully recovered from a concussion suffered last weekend against Purdue.
Then you have to ask yourself, is a concussed Threet better than our other options?
I hope that you're not seriously suggesting that a guy with a concussion should be put into a college football game under any circumstances.
i think a concussed threet will throw less picks than a good sheridan. whether we should play him ethically depends on how much we want that elusive 3rd win
Is just not a very "leaders and best" thing to do.
Ethically? Is there even the remotest smidgen of doubt that it would be totally unethical to put someone with a brain injury into a football game? A tackle football game involving dudes the size of my refrigerator?
i didnt put enough sarcasm in my post evidently
There are so many people posting such stupid things that it gets hard to tell what's real and what isn't.
Sorry, I'm having a hard-time telling actual braindeadedness apart from faux braindeadedness right now. I was up too late.
Sure, when you say things like "brain injury" it sounds bad. But come on, he's a football player, he's tough. What if he had broken spirits, would you call it a "heart injury" and not play him? No! Quit being pussies, Threet will play.
Well, Navy won a game this year without a single pass; perhaps that's our model for the Minnesota game?
Jesus Christ our QB depth is beyond atrocious...
I blame Ty Willingham...wait...
My vote is Antonio Bass to start.
Does Jermaine Gonzalez still have eligibility left to use?
... back Henson.
looking great on the Lions practice squad.
still on their actual roster - the lions cut someone else to make room for Culpepper, so they currently have 4 "qbs" on the active roster.
