Kyle Meinke discusses quarterbacks in Michigan vs. Notre Dame matchup

By Staff

In this week's video preview, sports reporter Kyle Meinke breaks down the disparate quarterback positions that Michigan and Notre Dame bring into their game on Saturday night (8 p.m., ESPN).

Neither Michigan's Denard Robinson nor Notre Dame's Tommy Rees played four quarters last week, for vastly different reasons. What will their respective offenses look like with their starters playing a full game?

Nobody really puts pressure on Denard.. Its suicide. The second your D line puts pressure down the middle Denard is getting out of there... leaving him in space, with a poor LB just waiting to be left in the rear view. Its happened plenty of times, and watching Denard wilt under pressure from the middle has not. The best way to defend Denard is for your DL and LBs to stay home and make him beat you passing. But if UM's RBs step it up, and Denard becomes more comfortable passing the ball, then your basically screwed. Time will tell, but i think Denard is talented enough for the task. And btw.. staying at home on defense isnt guaranteeing you anything either. UM31 ND21

People talk about UM putting pressure on Tommy, but Denard is the guy that wilts under pressure. A little pressure up the middle and this kid throws like a junior high cheerleader.
