I know Kansas sucks, but I'm still a little shocked that the Shane Morris we saw in Ann Arbor went out and went full Tom Brady on the Jayhawks. Good for him. It's a long time coming

Definitely.  Borges was maddening in that he'd alternate a great gameplan with a terrible one, but Nuss was just a season-long grind of suck, with no hope in sight.  And he's absolutely horrific as a QB coach.  Gardner, likewise, went from being functional (and sometimes excellent) under Borges to awful under Nuss.  And now look at Florida's QBs.  


2013 (Borges) - 208-345, 2960 yards, 8.6 YPA, 21 TD, 11 INT, 483 rush yards, 11 rush TD

2014 (Nuss) - 174-283, 1896 yards, 6.7 YPA, 10 TD, 15 INT, 276 rush yards, 4 rush TD


2013 - 29-47, 261 yards, 5.6 YPA, 0 TD, 2 INT, 40 rush yards

2014 - 14-40, 128 yards, 3.2 YPA, 0 TD, 3 INT, 27 rush yards

I think Nuss's reputation benefits slightly from the fact that we were all kind of mentally checked out during the 2014 season, as we were focused more on getting rid of Brandon.  Nuss was Gerg-level bad, maybe the worst OC in school history.  He delivered 2008-level results with far more talent.  It's incredible to me that he not only got a soft landing at Florida but is still employed there.

Sounds like his game against Kansas was lights-out good:

Morris, a former five-star recruit out of Warren De La Salle and transfer from Michigan, completed 28-of-37 passes and had career highs in passing yardage (467) and TD passes (five).

The article notes that even the yardage exceeds what he accrued at Michigan.  I hope he has a lot of success for the rest of the year.  Games coming up against Syracuse and Boston College will give him some opportunities to get a little recognition.

He had great time to set in the pocket so he looked comfortable. He made smart decisions and was accurate. He also made some really special thread the needle throws.

His performance vs Rhode Island however had many believing he would lose his position with another performance like week one.

I've been pullling for him since he committed to Michigan - even when he was buried on the depth chart at Michigan. No reason to stop now. Seems like he has always had a good attitude despite adversity. Hope he continues to surprise us all.

one of his TDs was a 75-yard screen pass where Chapman completely ran past the entire KU secondary along the sideline.  A lot of wide open receivers in this game, but he still had to make the throws.  No INTs.  Looked pretty sharp to me.

I hope for the best for Shane. His legacy should be broken CMU passing records, not the Shane Morris Fiasco.

Also, he's in a better situation at CMU. Can you imagine Ulizio - thus far - protecting a blind side??

Wish him all the best, good kid and terrific representative as a U-M graduate.

Another positive for him - he now has much hotter females to check out around campus, combined with a favorable CMU girl to guy ratio of students.  Sugar Shane gets to live the dream at The Wayside in Mt P - nice!!!

well wishing Shane...I really hope he gets an opportunity to shine so much that he gets a crack at the NFL. He's got the skill, just needs to put it all together. Looks like he's on a solid track at CMU

That was a big game for Shane. If he struggled he would have been pulled quick. He didn't look good vs Rhode Island (besides the Leap). Hope he keeps it up. Big win for CMU, 2nd year in a row beating a big 12 team.
