Devin Gardner, the Monday Morning Quarterback, joined us to discuss Michigan’s 27-20 victory over Alabama in the Rose Bowl during the College Football Playoff semifinal, as well as to look ahead to Washington in the National Championship Game.
Sam Webb of The Michigan Insider and Devin Gardner, a former Michigan quarterback, host “The Monday Morning Quarterback” every Monday from 9 to 10 a.m. EST on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA. Every episode delves deeply into Michigan’s previous week’s game from the viewpoint of the guy who started as the Wolverines’ starting signal caller and donned the winged helmet.
Devin emphasizes in this week’s discussion how Michigan outcoached Nick Saban and Alabama.Devin Gardner Yes, I do agree. Furthermore, your pleasant remarks regarding football are not limited to this season. Over the past few years, we have discussed it somewhat. The defense is outstanding… and the attack, perhaps (fumbles a little). And they do it when we need them to (the offensive). And in a different game, it appears like the defense is having trouble this time. “Offense, but you have to (show the way).” Thus, it’s a testament to a fantastic team. A fantastic, cohesive team. And in this regard, two components of your team in this game… It wasn’t until the last offensive drive that the offensive and special teams truly clicked. Additionally, the special teams were never able toWe wanted a positive snap, so we could make a solid one on the extra point. Other than a strong snap on the extra point and strong special teams, it was the epitome of incompetence. And that just hasn’t occurred. And I hope that won’t occur once again. However, the offense produced a play when it was necessary. However, that defense was excellent. Additionally, as you pointed out, Alabama’s past and the hire of a former Michigan defensive coach didn’t help. Additionally, I think they were outcoached in every aspect. And clearly outplayed, even if I believe their offensive strategy was just passably well. However, Minter’s defense strategy was just superior. Additionally, you can observe thatThe last play in which they possess something… something that may be effective. But now that his feet are all in the way and you’ve broken his guard right in front of him, it’s clear that the terrible snap was really helpful. However, now that tackle’s leg is in the hole, you have a backside. It’s what gets at Milroe. And that’s only a small sample of the overall gameplay. They pursued him. They were behind the defense. They were in the backfield, and I came across a video on Twitter of Alabama’s offensive linemen ambling around the Michigan sideline in an intimidating manner. Were you able to witness that? Big big guys, dude. I’mSpeaking of walking (around Michigan’s border). A few Michigan players are involved, and because Alabama’s linemen are so large, the Michigan players appear to be young children. Additionally, they are walking side to side while viciously mugging others. “You’ve got to play the game, brother!” is spoken to them after they enter the game. This is a game that you must play (after those shenanigans). Their five offensive linemen were like, “Hey, we want to show y’all how big we are.” Furthermore, if you consider it, particularly the finishes, it was very wonderful to witness. The defensive ends for Michigan were just so much bigger than those huge, ancient dudes on Alabama. Still, it made no difference. They resembled wild canines.
