The Game: 'Position Battle' at center (Moosman vs. Molk)

(CLIF REEDER / Daily)

BY DAN FELDMAN

Redshirt junior David Moosman and redshirt freshman David Molk are competing to be the starting center, but there’s enough flexibility on the offensive line’s interior that this may not end up a true race.
Molk and Moosman can play guard, but Rodriguez said Moosman is better suited for that position. Neither redshirt juniors Corey Zirbel nor Tim McAvoy, the presumed starting guards, are established. So Molk and Moosman definitely could see snaps at guard.

The Game: 'Position Battle' at running back (Minor vs. Brown)

(JEREMY CHO / Daily)

BY DAN FELDMAN

Juniors Brandon Minor and Carlos Brown are 1A and 1B right now in the race to be the top running back. And it might stay that way all season. With uncertainty at quarterback and Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez’s spread offense being run-heavy in its most recent form, there will probably be plenty of carries to go around.

Quarterback competition gets more mysterious for Michigan football team

It’s a bit telling that when redshirt sophomore middle linebacker Obi Ezeh was asked about the Michigan football team’s quarterback situation today, the first players he mentioned were “No. 3” and “Carlos.”
“No. 3” is dual-threat freshman Justin Feagin, and “Carlos” is junior Carlos Brown, listed on the roster and self-described as a running back.
Neither are redshirt freshman Steven Threet or redshirt sophomore Nick Sheridan, the players Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez has repeatedly said lead the quarterback competition since the spring.

Me: What freshmen this year are most likely to redshirt? Which ones do you think have the best shot at playing key roles by season’s end?

Standing in front of board that shows his team’s 2008 schedule, Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez addressed the media today at Schembechler Hall after the Wolverines’ third day of fall practice.
But unlike the spring when the board was filled with all 12 opponents, just “Aug. 30 UTAH” preceded 11 blank lines.
The Wolverines attitude has evolved from playful to giddy to buckling down during the last couple of weeks. They even wore shoulder pads today.

Fifth-year senior Morgan Trent and sophomore Donavon Warren comprise the Big Ten’s second-best cornerback combination, trailing just Malcolm Jenkins and Donald Washington at Ohio State.
Trent has quietly become one of the nation’s premier cornerbacks. He’s very speedy and has developed excellent coverage skills after moving from wide receiver.
