Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez on quarterbacks Tate Forcier, Denard Robinson, Devin Gardner

By Dave Birkett

Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez shares his thoughts on how quarterbacks Tate Forcier, Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner have looked so far this spring. Robinson is practicing exclusively at quarterback for now, while Gardner is "a talented guy" who has "gotten better in three days."

RichRod has gained respect in the Big Ten, the OSU and MINN coaches came quickly to his defense on the violations allegations, in fact the OSU coach put himself out on the line a bit in defending RichRod. I see some of our other readers love and respect RichRod as well...'And the rest of the Big Ten agrees... Long Live the King'... RichRod and Michigan are great for each other, hope he stays as long as Joe Pa'... This is Great.....UM 8 Big Ten 0 for 2010.

@OSUbeBetter & NoBowl4Blue, Be careful what you wish for, for you might just get it! Just keep on dogging and mocking our football program all you want. We'll see who will have the last laugh.

I agree that Rich Rod and michigan are great for eachother. I hope he stays at michigan as long as Joe Pa has been at Penn, Or longer.

Paul...... wait,..... what...... can you put that in english for us non-techno's... Theo212... you man are classic, the world needs more commenters like the seven of us, our group rocks! True story... I met Coach RichRod at a barbeque last May, stood in line with a bunch of kids to get an autograph, picture with him.. felt apologetic when I met him, 'I said Hi Coach, I'm a Big Kid., he said 'Aren't we all'! His wife and, I believe the other Coaches wife's prepared the food for us, and I got her autograph also - she was very gracious, later talked to me about the new indoor training facility... then I had a picture taken with Tate, sent it to about 190,000 people... met Denard R., one of the politest people you will ever meet. Anyone that says our RichRod isn't a Michigan Man or doesn't have family values has never been anywhere close to our UM football family or the Big House! The King Lives.

I would love to be able to view this story on my iPhone and eventually on my iPad. Unfortunately, its use of Flash precludes my viewing. It would be great if you could use the HTML5 video tag instead of the flash. Given that this video is already H.264, this shouldn't be a problem. Barring that, at least a link to the youtube site itself would be great. That would allow viewing on mobile devices.

Great video from the King... yes, time and great coaching will make these 3 quarterbacks better and better... Rich Rod addressed the turnover issue which, again will improve with time... can't wait to see Devin... what a great feeling to have the 3 best college quarterbacks in the nation here! New prediction UM 78 CONN 3. If just Devin is offense and Dorsey on defense by themselves, then UM 35 CONN 14
