Found November 15, 2012 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Devin Gardner has done a pretty admirable job filling in at quarterback for Denard Robinson the past couple weeks.  He led Michigan to a 35-13 drubbing of Minnesota in Minneapolis and then a comeback overtime win against Northwestern at home. There were 112,510 people at Michigan Stadium for last Saturday’s game.  It was the most attended football game of the weekend.  But according to this message from Gardner, that wasn’t good enough. On Wednesday, Gardner plead with fans to show up on time and be loud to honor the team’s seniors who include starting quarterback Denard Robinson, safety Jordan Kovacs and wide receiver Roy Roundtree. If you have ever been to a game at Michigan Stadium, it’s actually amazing how subdued 110,000+ “screaming” fans can sound.  So Gardner does have a point.  Is it the inordinate amount of blue hairs that attend?  Is it the fact that the stadium is a giant hole?  It’s probably a combination of both.  Either way, it’s pretty sad that the team feels the need to have a player make this public service announcement. mgobloe

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?
