I can't believe this is even a thread
I think there are a lot of assumptions being made in this thread and Devin's performance in his 4 games is being blown way out of proportion. Now don't get me wrong Gardner showed a lot of potential but he still has a lot of developing to do. He threw bad picks in each of the 4 games. Was late on throws quite a bit. Turned the ball over 3 times against the best team he faced. It is not a given that Devin will develop and become a stud. He still has to put in a lot of work to get to that level.
Solid post, +1
How are you going to ask us a question then go ahead and answer your own question?
Fixed that for ya Kyle.
which campbell? cass tech? I hope you're not talking about him. the kid wont get one snap with michigan. probably wont get offered anyways
I think Gardner will develop even more given the bowl practices. He is a dangerous runner and with a little work on his mechanics can be a dangerous complete quarterback. Shane did not have a great senior season and was also cut short by illness. I still can't understand why he is rated a five star after seeing his performances this year. He throws the ball hard but is inaccurate and believe this can be straightened out, especially with a redshirt, giving him another year of experience.
For the bowl game Gardner and Denard ought to be used more and should give SC fits, especially with their aggressive DE's. Options with a passing quarterback can really cause havoc and I don't understand why Michigan didn't use this tandem more against OSU in the second half. May have been the difference in the game!
Yes, I am a Buckeye but want the Big Ten to win all of their bowl games, especially against the SEC. Go BigTen!!!
Thats why I corrected him .. Duuhh ..
shows how much you know about high school football. stats mean nothing in high school. not every school has d1 talent. when good high school teams play bad high school teams it is like bama vs akron. de lasalle has a horrible oline; they have no talent. morris has no time in the pocket. as soon as they snap the ball the guy rolls out and is running for his life. half of his passing attempts are on the run. you can put any high school qb in the country on de lasalle and they wont do any better. put morris on a good team in texas,cal,florida and he will throw for 4000 yards easily.
I don't understand the hype on him. you can put any of the 2014 qb's that michigan is interested in on a loaded cass tech team and they wont lose a game.
Gardner, let Morris acclimate to the college game. You guys looked like better with Gardner than Denard.
Which deer is your favorite???????
Personally, I dont see Morris exceeding expectations. Odds are he wont. Maybe kind of like Drew Henson, a very good player with a bunch of hype, but many had unrealistic expectation which may seem like they didnt achieve. I think Morris will be solid, but we really need some elite WR and RB for him to match expectations.
What are you talking about? How about you let him step on campus before you label him a bust.
Edit: meant for awink

Gardner will start and be very productive next year (hopefully for 2 years). But i'm curious if he gets banged up and Morris comes in and throws, how quick people will jump on the new QB to replace him. We seen how quick that happened this year, and that was after 3 years of elite service from Denard.
I think the guys who say "Gardner will start for 2 years" are getting a little ahead of themselves. We see it all the time, hence why I mentioned Jim Harbaugh: a QB situation could easily be more fluid than people may anticipate. I think Gardner will be the starter going into next season, but it would be silly to chain yourself to the idea.
Devin. How soon we forget that Devin was the highest ranked QB in 2010. He's more athletic than Morris and is game tested. Both will be great but Morris will wait his turn.
A couple months ago he was a wide receiver and the coaches (and many posters here) favored Bellomy over him...now he's a sure thing 2 year starter.
Gardner will get the chance to showcase his ability, I'm sure, and if he performs to our hopes and expectations, he will be the starter for the rest of his career with Michigan. But that's a caveat. And who are we kidding? Two bad games and half the people here will scream for Morris.
