It was refreshing to see Devin Gardner practicing in the first spring practice video. Let's hear it for some good news on the injury/recovery front!
Good luck to Devin and the rest of the team! Go Blue!
Who makes that catch at the end from Spieght?
Heitzman is a big TE.
Hopefully that gives him an advantage when it comes to blocking capabilities.
I thought DG was going to be limited in Spring Ball looks like he shocked everyone.
foot and played almost half a game running on the side of his foot.
That's just a boo-boo to Devin

"I was more surprised as anybody," Hoke said of seeing Gardner practice. "(His mobility) was awfully good - I think that's where my surprise came from. He practiced the whole time. ... He looked great."
#SaveJasonAvant is trending, havent looked into it. Might be threadworthy if someone does their homework.
Back to the discussion...
I like Spieght's size, but I'm gonna have to say that Gardner would be my choice between the 3 of them for this season. For coming back from an injury, he looks like he hasn't lost a step.
You prefer M's quarterback be a very talented redshirt senior returning starter rather than a true freshman or a sophomore with one meaningful game of experience?
I'll take the guy who was sensational at times last year.
Also, don't forget Hoke said that Bellomy was also "in the mix". I take the rest of Hoke's "QB Competition" as seriously as that elaboration.
Why is this being down voted?
it wont matter if his O-line doesnt get better. Here's to hoping they can give him atleast 5 seconds vs MSU.
5 seconds, I'd be happy if he had 2.5 seconds.
I could quarterback with 5 seconds. It's an eternity.
the new equipment guy is thorough.
I believe big Jon is still on the job for a bit longer.
Edit: Nope, my bad. I thought the picture of Jon at the MSU game said he was here a bit longer. His profile says he was done at the conclusion of the bowl game.
I first read this as, "the new equipment guy though..." and laughed hysterically. Thank you.
Here's to him running routes with the WR's.
Do you people do this seriously, or are you just trolling for the lulz?
... Or GTFO!
I was entitled to an opinion.. So I plan on using it. I will support anyone that plays, but given the history of his decision making skills, his and our best bet is for him to be on the receiving end. Most everyone here is washing 2014 away, I say the coaches split time with 2 of the QBs anyway.
...when getting his chest caved in 0.63 seconds after reaching for every shitty third snap?
Or how about that sweet running game that didn't put ANY pressure on DG to be the Messiah of the offense?
No, let's blame the QB instead.
but what about all of the poor decisions he has made, take the sack, dust yourself back off and go back at it the next down. do not try to throw a desperation pass while you are getting sacked.. or look like a deer in headlights when all of your options are covered, he has 2 legs that he could of used to run for at leasr positive yardage. Sorry I support whoever plays but I am not a fan of DG.
Or....I wouldn't be opposed to it, at least.
You're entitled to an opinion, whether you can continue to express it here will be up to the admins....
But I'm not sure he can pass it to himself.
"Gardner, under his third offensive coordinator..."
So, he has a degree in three years and will be learning his third offense in four seasons. Does Devin sound like a future head coach to anyone else here? He certainly does to me.
Michigan's next HC 20 years from now?

I'm so excited to see what Nussmier can do with DG and the rest of the O. If Borges was as bad as a lot of folks on this blog (me included) thought; I think Nuss had a real chance to get a lot more out of our talent.
He made AJ McCarron into a super efficient pocket passer. Granted; he had more talent on the line to work with. But I think the potential of our young players might show through way more with Nuss. Never underestimate the value of good coaching in terms of a team success, right?
Just as it was with talk of Denard being replaced as a senior. While both qb's had/ have their flaws its pretty difficult to replace talented, experienced seniors with inexperienced backups.
And he looks big. 6-6 goddamn.
