    Nice game for Speight. The Michigan Transfer Heisman looks like it’ll go down to the wire between him and Washington.

    As a Michigan fan, I like seeing these guys have success wherever they end up. Especially the guys who graduated from M and contributed to the program. Speight and Washington clearly made the right choice in moving on given the success Michigan has had on the field. Though it’d be nice to have Speight around as a backup, his desire to start makes sense. Washington wouldn’t be playing at Michigan either so good for him.

    Speight has looked pretty good at times, but pretty bad at others. It’s hard to watch an entire game and get a better assessment though, as Pac12 and Fox have awful teams of announcers
    That said, he’s connected twice with Asiasi that I’ve seen, and both were very nice tosses

      Yes. Very bad at times – and lost his job for a while to a freshman. Expect to see both QBs against USC. Interesting perspective from another almost-but-not-Wolverine:

      “Junior center Boss Tagaloa has snapped the ball to both quarterbacks, and he said there hasn’t been too much of a difference between how the offense is run with either one. “I’ve got to get the snaps up just a little bit higher for (Speight) than I have to with (Thompson-Robinson),” Tagaloa said. “I’ve got to tilt up more, because (Speight) is taller than (Thompson-Robinson). So yeah it’s kind of different, but it’s still the same.””
