You can watch the full press conference in the embedded media player below or read the notes and quotes after the jump. Opening Statement: ”Really unusual situation to have your guys going back-to-back, going to classes, trying to play back-to-back while the other team’s in a hotel resting back-to-back. Turning things around, studying… That was a challenge and I’m really pleased with the way we responded. That is not easy when you’re playing in a tournament atmosphere with a quick turnaround.

The Quarterback Situation

The topic of Michigan's quarterback situation is a catch-22 for sportswriters and bloggers. If you don't call it a "quarterback controversy", which it isn't, then what do you call it? We desperately want to label things. If you label it as anything else, like a "situation" or an "issue", does that make it less interesting? Because I find...
