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!
