One thing's for sure heading toward K-State's December 28 date in Tempe with the Wolverines: Michigan's backup quarterbacks will be ready. That's because, according to a report from the Detroit Free Press's Devin Gardner is walking around in a boot and on crutches due to turf toe and isn't able to practice.,
This isn't as big a deal as it may seem, however, as Brady Hoke uses bowl practices in much the same fashion as Bill Snyder -- as a means to prepare for next year.
It's been a rough year for Gardner, who's battled nagging injuries all year and, according to (Mark) Snyder, has taken Michigan's losses personally and feels responsible.
