Earlier this week during Big Ten Media Days, Brady Hoke was asked multiple times who his starting QB would be. Even though the team brought Devin Gardner with them to Chicago to represent the team, Hoke would not name him as the guy.
Today while in Bristol on Numbers Never Lie, he admitted that Gardner is the starter for now at least:
“Going in (to camp, there will be competition between Devin Gardner and Shane Morris),” Hoke said during his appearance on “Numbers Never Lie.” “We’ve got great competition. (But) if we opened the season today, Devin would start for the Wolverines.”
It’s not surprising that Gardner has the leg up based on experience but based on his performance last year, the leash will be short so to speak. Don’t be surprised if you see both QBs get snaps in game action this season.
