For whatever it's worth, Joe Schad tweeted that Denard will be starting (no surprise), followed by Gardner second, and Tate third. Take it for what it's worth, a tweet from a ESPN reporter. Would anyone here be concerned if Gardner got in before Tate, given some of the mistakes we've seen Gardner make in the fall scrimmage?

As long as win i dont care... I would love to have Gardner redshirt just as much as the next guy.
Howeva, I just want a W
I believe would be a huge mistake. Now coach is the coach, but you don't play a true Fr before Tate who has 12 games under his belt. Thats asking to lose this game. Never believe anything from ESPN.
The same could have been said about Nick Sheridan last year.
I see what your saying also....But REALLY??? Compare Nick to Tate? Thats like tossing the 1st shovel of dirt on your buddies grave while laughing...Love Nick...Michigan Man...Did the best he can with what he was born with...But damn..lol
Is a win.
At the pont Tate handed OSU a cheap touchdown to start the game, I deciided he had not learned all that much from his playing time. And he seems to have slacked off, believing the job was his, while two superior talents bused their humps. that alone is a textbook map to third string.
To me, it is someone leaking out misinformation to keep everyone off their game. You can't prepare for anyone in particular, if you don't know who is playing.
He knows what's at stake.
I really want to see what Forcier can do this year even if he is just a second string. He had to have improved some over last year right? If the offensive line is better, and Forcier is even slightly better, he should be pretty effective. I really don't want to go through the growing pains of another Frosh QB.
I've never seen something like this before where a starter loses his job and the backup job to a true freshman. Whatever has happened in the offseason, it's sure going to be interesting to see how it all translates on the field.
Then again, from the academic issues last year, to being publicly reprimanded by teammates and the helmet incident, I guess we shouldn't be surprised.
Mark Moundros can take reps at QB if it meant we were going to score more points. If it means we see Denard followed by DG so be it. Whatever helps us win.
I'm not buying into this. There have been comments recently from Steve Schilling that he is winning the respect back from his teammates and that he's been working hard. You don't move down to the third string with a Freshman in front after starting the whole season. I've never heard of that.
I'd like to eat my words
That's not worth anything. I'll believe that Tate is 3rd string when I see it.
but something like that has potential for drama rr doesn't need. if we struggle, there'll be all kinds of questions.
I've seen zero practices, therefore I'll have to trust whomever the guys that get paid a ton of money to make these decisions puts in there. I'm supporting all 3 of them; win, lose, or draw
JUST START THE FUCKING GAME ALREADY!!!! OMG
Seeing little brother and Penn St and all the other teams already playing is driving me crazy...
that Denard would start on gameday this morning, so it must be true because we all know that talking heads are never wrong.
Everything is else is secondary.
Not good. If gardner plays we are in big trouble
I don't know that DG does something better than both Tate and DRob, but if RR thinks he will actually help us win, so be it. Just win.
that this is what happens you come into camp out of shape. Tate will see playing time before DG today.
