ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez kept to his word and played all three quarterbacks against Western Michigan, as junior Nick Sheridan took his first snaps of 2009.
Unlike freshmen Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson, Sheridan didn't fare as well, tossing an interception near the Western Michigan goal line. He did show improved mobility on a touchdown run that was called back on a penalty. This game is pretty much over, so don't be surprised if Rodriguez gets Sheridan some more work in the final 24 minutes.
Sheridan seems to be the third-string quarterback, but his experience will prove valuable at some point this season.
