Breaking News: Michigan's Chances Falll Further

Jeff ContizanoCorrespondent INovember 5, 2008

While the chances of a victory for the 2-7 Wolverines against the upstart 7-2 Minnesota Golden Gophers were already very slim, things appeared to have gotten worse this week.

Head Coach Rich Rodriguez has that stated that starting quarterback Steven Threet is "very, very doubtful" for the game saturday against Minnesota.

Rodriguez told the press that the headaches usually associated with concussions typically fade after a few days, and that Threet's have not. He has been unable to practice all week because of this.

This does not bode well for a Michigan offense ranked dead last in the big 10 and an astounding 109th in the nation.

In threet's place will start sophmore Nick Sheridan, who will be backed up by true freshmen Justin Feagin.

Feagin was expected to play QB this season but has been moved to the slot position as of late, and now has returned to back up Sheridan due to depth issues.
