Imo It's Gardner all the way.
Is this even a question?
Yeah, I'm 99.9% sure Gardner is the guy. I just want to see if anybody thinks otherwise.
The tricky thing is since Gardner now has two years does that mean you sit Shane two years? Or do you out Gardner QB this year, and then WR the following year. It's going to be a tough decision for the coaches next year.
Although Gardner is an awesome WR, I don't see why they would do that.
Yes. You sit Shane for two years. We saw this year what happens if your starting QB goes down and you don't have a solid backup prepared. By the grace of God, Devin was able to step in and save the season, but can you imagine what would happen if we had to play Bellomy? Barring injury, Devin will be starting until he graduates. If that means Shane sits his RS Fr. season, so be it. I'll take a RS Sr. Devin Gardner over a RS Fr. Shane Morris any day.
On top of that, frankly, Devin has earned it. He sat behind Denard for years, he accepted a move to WR, and he clearly worked his butt off at getting ready to be a QB again. Unless next year is a disaster of epic proportions for him (which I really can't see happening, as he played well down the stretch), he'll hold onto the job in 2014.
So you think that the coaches should sit Shane for 2 years?
Definitely. Let him develop.
It will be Gardner and he made a believer out of me, even after that pitiful spring game.
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Isn't it obvious? Shane moves to WR.
But yes shane sits as long as gardner is here. Shane may nwver even be as good as gardner
Gardner, and like other people have said is this even a question?
Gardner should start for the next 2 years, and let Shane sit and learn. I don't think any QB has ever been hurt by waiting, especially if he is learning and improving like Shane will be.
That being said, if Shane is amazing, then RS him next year and let him start as a RS FR.
Seriously. Devin is a proven entity. Shane is true freshman. I want Shane to succeed beyond my wildest dreams, but the world of college football is littered with 5-star busts. Give me the guy who won 3 games after not playing QB all year, and then had us in a position to beat OSU multiple times if the play-calling hadn't been so idiotic.
Yeah, i want shane to be tbe best qb we have ever seen, but maybe he doesnt pan out. This 14 quarterback may be a huge deal, im glad the coaches are taking their time to find tbe right one.
In a perfect world, we get gardner for two, shane for two, then campbell for 2.
The best Guy will play regardless. But What's wrong with shane starting as a RS soph?

If Gardner can get his RS, I can see and would want him starting at qb for the next two years. He will obviously have more experience, the bigger run threat, and still has the ability to make all the throws in the pro style offense. You also have to realize the education part of the game and how much more of the playbook that can be utilized with Gardner at the helm. Having Shane redshirt his first year and then be Gardner's backup for the next will only help Shane prepare mentality for the switch to Division 1 football. By no means is this a knock on Shane, he could very well earn the starting position his first or second year on the team.
Shane for 3. Clearly, he'll love Michigan so much that he'll come back in 2017 for his RS Sr. year in a bid to become only the 2nd two-time Heisman trophy winner.
Sitting and learning the position isn't a knock on anyone, it is so incredibly rare to have a QB able to come in and succeed from Day 1 that it just isn't worth the risk. A couple bad outings early on can ruin a QB's confidence and career. If you look at the difference between Alex Smith and Aaron Rodgers, you can see the vitally important nature of starting on the bench and learning the position behind a veteran.
DG all the way... for the next two years.
Barring injury and development DG for 2013 and not even close.
Better question is will DG have the same OC both years?

I like the Harbaugh way of doing it, I think we will go with Gardner.
And we will go with Morris.
He does? Did i miss something? You have a link for that?
He doesn't. Everyone's just going off of Hoke saying that he thinks he'll get it. Even ESPN was "confirming" that. I'm still not sure
I have not seen anything for certain, but most people seem to think that it is a done deal. Any idea when we hear for sure?
