As we have all been recently informed, it seems like Tate's bruised shoulder is more than just a bruised shoulder. If he is not healthy enough to play v. Sparty, can we win with Shoelace playing the majority of the game? He had a pretty solid drive v. Indiana, but its still pretty evident that his passing skills aren't quite as polished as Tate's. In the few plays where he actually attempted a pass, he has made numerous bad reads and bad decisions. Is this just a premature evaluation based on a small sample size? Can we win with Shoelace if Tate is down?
"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
