Mallett makes debut: The future is now

Starting QB Chad Henne had to leave the game at halftime due to a lower-leg injury which meant that Freshman sensation Ryan Mallett got to make his debut. Mallett played the entire second half and was 6 for 17 passing for 49 yards with 1 int. and 0 touchdowns. He was sacked twice and fumbled twice (losing one). Michigan did not score any points in the second half but Mallett did display his strong arm as he heaved the ball downfield on a couple of different throws. After the game, Coach Carr indicated that Chad Henne is doubtful for next week's game against Notre Dame. Thus, it is highly likely that Ryan Mallett will be called upon to start. The Mallett-era has officially begun. Go Blue!

Is Henne really hurt or is that a clever way of benching him?

Here is the combination that saves Michigan Football!

Les Miles as head coach...

BRIAN KELLY as the OC

Brian would take our recruits to the next level and Les could do his thing!!!

If Michigan is serious about being a top 5 program again, pay the big dollars and get these two Midwest guys to team up!!!

THAT WOULD BE FREAKING INCREDIBLE!!!

Les Miles as Head Coach
Brian Kelly as OC

Send this idea to Martin!!!

I wasn't thrilled with Mallet's accuracy..Passes seemed errant and often high ala JNavarre. Admittedly I missed lots of the second half cause I just couldn't stand to watch it.

The long bombs he threw though were impressive. His 70 yard throws just look like a simple toss.

GO Blue! Keep the faith
