McElwain to MI: 2 can play at secrecy game

McElwain to MI: 2 can play at secrecy game

"As I said before, people make a lot of a big deal about our roster or not announcing a starting quarterback".

On Monday, McElwain was asked what he thought of some of Harbaugh's "antics", which keep the Wolverines - and their coach - on college football's center stage in the spring and summer. Returning starter Wilton Speight and fifth-year senior John O'Korn have emerged as the leading candidates. "We'll leave that for them to guess as well". "So, no, we're not announcing our starting quarterback". Never any mention of that.

After some digging and talking to sources, I can confirm that the MI football team was told about the alternative jersey and was able to wear them at Friday's practice.

The Wolverines will be playing in new alternate uniforms in Dallas.

Florida quarterback's Feleipe Franks (13) and Malik Zaire (8) work at practice.

"The quarterback situation, we have a plan that's in place", McElwain told reporters. "We're excited about that".

NJ.com submitted a Freedom of Information Act request three weeks ago for a list of MI players on athletic scholarships and only recently received a response.

O'Korn, who started his career at Houston, won his only start in a MI uniform in November against in when Speight injured his shoulder.

The Gators will wear a flooded blue uniform with all-blue accessories (gloves, cleats, socks and wristbands) in a subtle yet bold change from the program's traditional look.
