The video speaks for itself — a quarterback slammed to the ground gets up, clearly rattled and ailing, barely able to stand. His knees give out, his head briefly lolling to the side, as a teammate supports him on the field.
Michigan head coach Brady Hoke stayed mum Thursday on whether Devin Gardner or Shane Morris will start for the Wolverines this week.
Michigan head coach Brady Hoke said Monday that he would announce a starting quarterback Tuesday, but in fact, he did not.

Brady Hoke disagreed with the notion the Wolverines struggled in the first half, but he did not seem surprised by the fan reaction.
“If they’re truly fans, they’ll believe in these kids and what they’ve done,” Hoke said. “If they’re not, they won’t.”
