Threet played "above average" today and Sheridan also had his
moments, but having two QBs play is hurting Michigan. Threet had
atleast 3 passes that if they were on target and caught they would have
either been touchdowns or very long gains. Each pass sailed over the
WR's head and IMO, this is because Threet and Sheridan are sharing reps
at practice. And yes, I am talking about "practice, were're talking
about practice. Not a game, but practice" sorry...
With the split time, either quaterback can't get the timing down with
their recievers. This shows in all the deep throws that Michigan has
not been able to connect with this game and last week. If Threet or
Sheridan were given the majority of snaps with the first string they
could build that cemistry and perhaps connect on a few of these long
So RR needs to choose a starter, cough Threet cough, and stick with them in practice and though the game.
the running game looked a hell of a lot better this week and the OL and
DL has been able to enforce their will on people late in games because
of the extended emphasis on conditioning. This bodes well for Michigan
later in the year when teams become tired and hurt and Michigan is
still going full speed at them.
Good Win, not great. Go Blue!
