    I would say more like Michigan QB job Shane Morris’s to lose to be honest. Shane Morris has already established himself with a rapport with Jim Harbaugh. He has gone through Spring practices and came out the leader in the Spring. Jake Ruddock comes in the summer here and just because he is a 5th year senior, he will have to compete for the job. We all know Jim Harbaugh’s philosophy on 5th year seniors. You won’t be just handed the spot. It’s no guarantee and that’s the way I see it. Jake Rudock’s numbers are intriguing, but they don’t mean squat in Michigan’s offense right now as they aren’t stats of him in a Michigan uniform. If Rudock thinks he can just put on a Michigan uniform and be guaranteed the starting QB position he is mistaken. It will be interesting to see what QB wants it more and who will out of perform the other, but IMO Morris has the slight edge going into fall camp.

      You may be right, but I think the ship has already sailed with Morris. Rudock is a very efficient one year stop gap while Harbaugh get’s his QB. Morris just doesn’t appear to be the guy. Time will tell. Rudock didn’t come here to be a backup, he knows he will beat out Morris.

        Yeah I don’t know. I just don’t see how Morris inability was mainly his fault. Michigan’s offensive staff has lacked immensely including OL, QB, and WR coach. In the Minnesota game he had no help what so ever. If you can’t throw it to a WR, who can you throw it to when defenders are in your face almost every play. There is no question though that Rudock and Morris will have to duke it out and prove to Harbaugh they are worthy of being starting QB. Nothing is given. Must be earned.

          Correct, the job won’t be gifted to anybody. I’m simply betting on Rudock at this point.
