Gap between MSU and Wolverines undeniable
The Daily Tribune’s Pat Caputo writes that the world has been “turned upside down on this state’s two Big Ten football programs,” emphasizing that while the Wolverines practice with uncertainty about Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson’s eligibility in 2018, the Spartans have 19 players returning, including their breakout quarterback Brian Lewerke.
Brandon Peters has most to gain from rest of spring ball
Land of 10’s Sean Keeler argues that, besides Patterson, quarterback Brandon Peters has the most to gain from the remaining two weeks of spring practice. Keeler writes that if Peters can show that he truly is the same quarterback who dismantled Maryland and Rutgers in 2017, and not the one who made mistakes in the Outback Bowl, he can keep the starting job.
Dylan McCaffrey has most at stake for rest of spring
Land of 10’s Chris Howard disagrees with Keeler; Michigan quarterback Dylan McCaffrey is the quarterback who has the most to gain or lose in the final two weeks of spring practice. Howard explains why McCaffrey’s ability to learn from Peters’ struggles could make him the starter in 2018.
