We, and especially the coaching staff, need to support Tate this week. This is a game that will shake his confidence severely, especially not being in the game at the end. I understand RR benching him and yelling at him for his last drive, but 19 year old kids can be emotionally on the edge. I would have preferred RR to console him after that drive the way he consoled Denard after the INT. There will be a lot of yelling and finger pointing this week, and we have to realize this kid is the main reason why we are 4-2 at this point, so everyone back off of him. This is an important point of the season and potentially, his year.
“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
