As if things weren’t already bad enough for the Wolverines; they now have to hope a freshman QB doesn’t lead them into a bigger hole to start the season.
After beginning 0-2 with losses to Appalachian State and Oregon, things have gotten worse as starting QB Chad Henne’s left knee injury now seems to be more serious then originally thought. Henne was knocked out of Saturday’s game against Oregon in the second half and freshman Ryan Mallett came in as relief.
Mallett finished the day against Oregon completing six of seventeen passes for 49 yards and an interception. He already was named the starter for this week’s upcoming game, but now looks to be in the starting line-up a while longer.
On Saturday, Michigan will welcome in the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to Ann Arbor. Both teams are 0-2 to start a season for the first time in history, and are both in the middle of four game losing streaks dating back to last season.
