What is good news for Michigan football fans will turn into bad news for many of their opponents in the near future.

Yes, the Detroit Free Press has reported today that Inkster's Devin Gardner will enroll for classes at Michigan on Monday.

What does this mean? This means that Gardner will be able to sharpen his skills this spring while learning Rodriguez's offense.

It will not be a surprise to see Gardner redshirt his freshman year and he probably should. This is an important year, however, for Rich Rodriguez so it is hard to tell what his plans for Gardner will be.

Look for Michigan's 2010 offense to once again use a two-quarterback system with Forcier probably playing most of the time and Robinson moving into the slot more often.

Michigan should have an electrifying offense in 2010 and with Gardner, will comprise the most powerful quarterbacking trio in the nation.

None of this, however, will matter if the defense does not drastically improve and it will be young in 2010, a year in which the Big Ten will be loaded.

If Michigan wins seven or more games in 2010 and improves across the board, then RichRod will likely get an additional year. If this proves to be the case then Michigan will once again be among the elite in college football.
