There is a very real possibility that Sheridan will get some playing time in the MSU game if Forcier is out, which got me thinking. What if RichRod picks out 2 or 3 games this season and has Sheridan preparing for just those games in case we actually do need him due to injury or freshman mental collapse? If we're just playing Delaware State I'll take my chances with DRob, but in a rivalry game I'd like to know we not only have Sheridan but an uber-prepared Sheridan.
This would have been one of those games. I'd assume that if he is coaching material, he would actually be satisfactory in a game with 2-4 weeks of preparation. In fact, he'd probably have the entire MSU playbook memorized by now.
Does anyone think this would help? I mean, he's not being used at all right now, so it's not like there a lost opportunity cost in doing this.
