Ok, so far I've been willing to go along with RichRod, crazy offense and all. But Threet earned the job. Despite being a classic pocket passer forced to learn a new system, despite having a walk-on elevated in front of him to start the season, and despite being surrounded by a sub-par offensive line and bunch of true freshmen, he managed to lead the team back against Wisco.
Now he wasn't great in the first half, but Sheridan is clearly lacking the basic talent to be a Big Ten QB. He doesn't have an arm, he doesn't make good (or quick) decisions, and he doesn't belong back there right now. RichRod, stop trying to show us all how smart you are. Play the kid that gives Michigan the best chance to win. Play the kid that actually has the physical talents to lead Big Ten offense.
Maybe you'll even have to shift to a little more passing-focused attack, but please please give us a chance. Threet is a freshman, he's going to make mistakes, throw picks, inexplicably drop balls, even make the wrong decision from time to time. But, rarely has the QB yo-yo worked anywhere. Either you make the change and stick with it, or you find a package that works for a unique talent (like Tebow when Leak was still there). But inexperienced QBs living in fear of the bench don't develop, they try to survive. And sometimes, they break. Don't break this guy.
It was freakin' Toledo!
