  Draft Scout by Conference

  Michigan's top two coaches did their best to show public confidence in Joe Milton this week, even after the struggling quarterback was pulled from the game against Rutgers over the weekend. Jim Harbaugh, appearing on the "Inside Michigan Football" radio show Monday night, declined a second opportunity to name a starter for Saturday's upcoming game against Penn State (noon, ABC). Instead, Harbaugh used some of his time to defend Milton - who completed three of his four pass attempts, and even hit receiver Giles Jackson on a 31-yard completion early in the second quarter. "I thought he was playing good," Harbaugh said. "We hadn't gotten on the scoreboard yet and wanted to get Cade (McNamara) an opportunity - a shot at it - as well."

But it seemed like every drive came with trouble. Receiver Cornelius Johnson fumbled the football away after catching an 18-yard pass on Michigan's first drive of the game, then Milton failed to pick up the necessary yardage on a fourth-and-1 play on the next drive. The Wolverines went three-and-out on their third drive, then had to settle for a 49-yard field goal by Quinn Nordin (that he missed) after Giles Jackson failed to come up with a third-down catch down the left sideline. Milton was 5 of 12 for 89 yards before coming out of the game for McNamara, a redshirt freshman, with Michigan already trailing 17-0. "There was nothing that Joe did wrong, or wasn't doing well," Harbaugh said. "(We) had the idea of both of them playing. And Cade came in and he got pretty darn hot." - Ann Arbor News
