Poor RR decision equals new QB controversy?

Look, I'm not one to question Rodriguez' coaching decisions, but in this case I have to make an exception. I thought both QB's moved the ball well, but if I have to choose between a future great coach and a QB with mad freestyle skills I know which one I'd choose every time. Cone represents the future of hybrid awkward white QB's who bust verbal caps in fools, Sheridan is the traditional QB/future coach with limited athletic ability. One is the future, the other is the past.

Rodriguez should have put the Coner in much sooner--OMG worst coaching move ever.

All kidding aside, Cone played well and I'm happy for him. Nice job coach Rod for making such a great EFFORT in getting the 3,4, and 5 stringers in. These kids have busted their humps on the practice squad and were rewarded. Family values.......suck it Boren with your shitty all 5* o-line at tuos.

I am glad he got out there for a quarter, played pretty well, and completed some passes. Now he'll have a nice lasting memory of playing instead of his last pass being that interception near the goal line back in September.

....Somewhere a room full of chimpanzees at the Freep is hard at work on this....

Either this or "Michigan keeps Mesko on the bench; shows boorishness in win...Glenn Winston saves nuns from train wreck"

When Sheridan was handing off to Kevin Grady in the third quarter, I foresaw the Freep's next lead story: Michigan disgraces itself by allowing 2008 starting QB and 5-star running back to run up score against lowly Delaware State. Oh the humanity!

Be real. Kennedy has 6 very important games to contribute in. He should have had all 2nd half snaps.

On a lighter note...Sheridan looked good to me. His arm is stronger than last year, but his feet still go the same speed.

+1 is the least a smile can cost. Well done!

I was pulling for Cone yesterday too. Surprisingly, yesterday I was "upset" with an RR decision for the first time. I thought he should have let Cone get a passing TD at the end.

Heh, maybe some QB practice would help him judge his fake punts better... I don't dispute Mesko's reign as Space Emperor or his ability to put a football into orbit but that had to be one of the ugliest plays of the year.

Plus I imagine Mesko throwing a pass and it makes me laugh inside.

Edit: Negbanged? Really? ...Does that mean someone here actually thinks Mesko would be a good quarterback?

I think yesterday's game raises the question "why wasn't Cone the starting quarterback in 2008?"

Simple answer: Rodriguez was throwing the season. I HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT, RICH.
