Michigan Wolverine Cornerback Competition Opened

The WolverineCorrespondent ISeptember 29, 2009

We all saw J.T. Floyd step in and play for a struggling Boubacar Cissoko last weekend in the second half. Floyd did well, but not well enough to secure the starting job. Rich Rodriguez emphasized during Monday's presser that the competition is alive and wide open.

“We’re going to challenge a few guys defensively and get some other guys some reps and see who’s playing the best, try to get the best 11” on the field, Rodriguez said. “Corner’s one of them. (Donovan Warren’s) been playing very, very well, but the other corner position’s wide open.”

Rodriguez also brought up freshman Justin Turner's name unprompted on Monday, suggesting he may also see the field soon. “He gets better every week, so he gives us a chance there as well,” Rodriguez said. “It’s going to be a competitive situation, and I think it needs to be.”
