a career-high 212 yards on 19 carries, from corse178's blog

ANN ARBOR, Mich. Cheap Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys 2018 . -- Michigan?quarterback Wilton Speight didnt get the immediate beginning he wanted after winning a months-long quarterback competition to start under center for the No. 7 Wolverines.Speight threw an interception to?Hawaii defensive back Damien Packer?for an interception?on the first play of the season.After that, not much else went wrong for Speight or the Wolverines. The junior quarterback threw for 123 yards with three touchdowns to three different receivers as Michigan rolled up a 35-0 halftime lead. He finished 10-of-13 for 145 yards as the Wolverines cruised to a?63-3 victory.?While it took a full offseason for head coach Jim Harbaugh to publicly state his confidence in Speight as the starter, that faith didnt falter with the rocky start. Speight said the coach almost laughed when he made it to the sideline after throwing the interception.Obviously that wasnt the start I was imagining, Speight said. I was kind of rolling to our sideline and my momentum carried me right into Coach. He just grabbed me and held me and kind of starting laughing.Harbaugh said he was much more concerned with seeing how Speight would bounce back from his first major mistake of the year. Michigan started the following drive on its own 2-yard line, and the redshirt sophomore engineered a 98-yard touchdown drive capped off by a corner route pass to Grant Perry in the end zone that the coach said couldnt have been thrown any better.He responded in tremendous fashion, Harbaugh said. He had total command, and I think it bodes really well for our team and it bodes really well for his career.Three other quarterbacks --?Shane Morris, John OKorn and Alex Malzone?-- all played in the Wolverines blowout victory Saturday. Morris and OKorn completed all seven of their combined passing attempts for a total of 61 yards between them. Harbaugh said the competition among all the quarterbacks during August helped push each individual higher.Speight said he isnt sure exactly when he won the starting job, but he went into training camp with the confidence that it was his to lose. Harbaugh said he and the team had decided on Speight as their man last week, but the decision was not for public consumption before Saturdays first snap.You just kind of read body language and how practice is going and stuff like that, Speight said Aug. 23. I think guys will have a certain mindset going into the game. You just kind of feel it out.Speight played in six games as a backup last season, most notably leading a game-winning touchdown drive in the fourth quarter against Minnesota.Harbaugh also had opted to keep his starting quarterback private for last seasons opener, ultimately deciding to go with fifth-year senior Jake Rudock. He went on to throw for 3,017 yards and 20 touchdowns as Michigan won 10 games in Harbaughs first season as coach of his alma mater.In other news for the Wolverines, top running back DeVeon Smith left the game early with a midsection injury but should be ready for next weeks game against Central Florida. Harbaugh said it was a coachs decision not to play All-America cornerback Jourdan Lewis at all in the first game of the season because of a minor injury. Lewis was in full pads on the sideline and is also expected to return next week.Starting defensive linemen Bryan Mone and Taco Charlton, however, are more in doubt for next week. Mone, who missed all of last season with a broken leg, will get an MRI for an unspecified injury. Charlton injured an ankle Saturday. Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys For Sale .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. DJ Chark Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. http://www.cheapjaguarsjerseys.us/ NEWARK, Del. -- Wes Hills ran for a career-high 212 yards on 19 carries, including touchdown runs of 59 and 13 yards, and Delaware beat in-state rival Delaware State 56-14 on Thursday night.The Blue Hens (1-0) have won all seven meetings against the Hornets and are 52-12 in home openers dating back to 1952.Jalen Randolph finished with 55 yards and two scores on the ground, and Thomas Jefferson added 70 rushing yards for the Blue Hens.
