The Wolverines have three options at QB, but Coach Smith won't tell us who will take the first snap.

"Ultimately, you want what's best for us," Smith said. "If it's one guy, so be it. If it's two guys, so be it. We want to be able to give our guys the best situation to win. We'll be in a lot better situation than we were last year. Because, let's face it, we weren't very good last year. We have to be better."

Discussing Sheridan: "(The injury) is not a big deal—it limited him for spring," Smith said. "Obviously you could use the reps, but he's to the point where he understands what we're doing now. He took a lot of mental reps, and he'll catch up real quick."

Discussing Forcier: "I was pleased with his progress, (but) he's got a lot more to go," Smith said. "He puts in the extra time. I see him as much as anybody around doing extra, because he needs to."
