With so much talk about what will happen at the end of this ugly season for Michigan football, it’s easy to overlook that there’s a month to go in the regular season.
Saturday, Johnson erupted, logging 122 yards on 16 carries and scoring a pair of touchdowns, including his first ever for the Wolverines.
As poorly as Michigan’s season is going, a loss to Indiana would be a significant low point.
“It’s a team out there that needs me, and they said that they needed me, and it’s much bigger than myself,” quarterback Devin Gardner said.
Hoke stated, as he has since starting Morris against Minnesota, that he was impressed by Gardner’s handling of the temporary demotion.
Michigan head coach Brady Hoke said Monday that he would announce a starting quarterback Tuesday, but in fact, he did not.
Following Saturday’s game, Hoke did not commit to staying with Gardner as the starter. He said Monday that the team would announce Tuesday its decision on which quarterback will start against Minnesota.
“We’ll see what happens,” Hoke said. “I think that’s the best way to put it.”
This weekend Michigan hosts Utah (2-0), a team that has put up 115 points in its two games this season.
Gardner is a fifth-year senior, who has had plenty of opportunity as Michigan’s starting QB.
