Shane Morris maintained courage under fire during the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.
Is Devin Gardner the answer?
Prior to 2013, he most certainly had been thought to be the answer. With just five starts to his credit, Gardner took over last fall with hopes of building on his promising post-Denard Robinson warm-up sessions.
He played well versus South Carolina in the 2013 Outback Bowl, but that was a flash in the pan. Falling out of orbit, he posted a 7-5 record before breaking his foot on Nov. 30 against Ohio State.
So, needless to say, it's time for Michigan to reevaluate its quarterback position.
Shane Morris appeared beyond his years while completing 63 percent of his passes during Team 134's bowl loss. It wasn't a bad start for a frosh getting his first go at the big time.
Wilton Speight, a 2014 commit, is already enrolled at Michigan, as one of seven early arrivals. He should have ample time to get a head start in his newest, and perhaps most challenging course: Al Borges 101.
Learning the ways of Borges' offensive system can be tricky. Mastering an up-and-down offense that either wows or lulls won't be easy for Speight, a 247Sports 3-star pro-styler out of Richmond Collegiate (Va.).
Getting Morris reps as the No. 1 quarterback should be the priority—no waiting needed. He's as ready as he'll ever be. It's time to ride the Shane Train.
As for Speight, he has a well-rounded skill set that should attract Michigan fans who grew sick and tired of spread quarterbacks.
Morris is the guy, but Speight could be right there with him.
