    Who do you guys think will be Michigan's starting QB when we open with Utah next season?

    Shane Morris: Morris will probably be the favorite going into Spring Practice, but it's hard to say at this point. I think the position is wide open after the way Morris played last year. If we ever get anything out of Morris, next season will be it. He was highly recruited and will be a Junior next season. He hasn't proved to me he can lead the program, but will see.

    Alex Malzone: Malzone has the chance to start as a true freshmen this fall. He enrolled early and will take part in Spring Practice and that's going to give him a huge leg up. This kid looks very talented, but it's hard to say if Harbaugh will throw a true freshmen out there. I believe it will be Shane's job to lose, but he could quickly lose it to this kid.

    Those really are the only 2 options in my book. My guess is one of these 2 starts every game for Michigan next season. I wouldn't be surprised if both start at the beginning on the year, with Harbaugh finding his guy in the first month, before conference play.

    What do you guys think?

    I think it will be Shane. He looked decent in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl two years ago, so the guy has got talent. So now with a guy like Coach Harbaugh mentoring him, I expect him to blossom as a QB.

    He has talent, hopefully you're right. I expect Harbaugh to help out Shane quite a bit.

    Don't sleep on Wilton, I think he has the best chance to surprise us all. We know what Morris is, Malzone is a true freshman. It sounded as though Speight was making great decisions and all the throws last season in practices but they wanted to keep his RS. We all know how it worked out at RB, Drake finally got a shot and was the best we had. The two "best" players we had on offense last year never saw the field, Speight and Ty Isaac. I can't wait to see what JH can do with this roster, there is plenty of talent, just needed the leadership.

    From the reports I heard the best QB on the team last year was Wilson Speight. Hoke owed 5th year senior Gardner the first shot and then Shane Morris. I think he didn't want to burn WS redshirt.

    Hmm, didn't take this kid into consideration. He's going to be in the mix, but I don't see him starting any games next season unless something changes. It's pretty wide open at this point though.

    Right now I think it's going to come down to Shane Morris and Jake Rudock. How do you guys feel about Rudock?

    i think you are correct.

    I would also expect to see Speight and 1 or 2 others transfer.
