Few will ever forget Devin Gardner’s act of sportsmanship last Saturday at Ohio State. That includes an Ohio State at Marion employee who sent the Michigan quarterback a letter.

All eyes are on the Michigan quarterback situation. Will it be Devin Gardner or Shane Morris, as the Wolverines seek to spark a listless offense? The answer: stay tuned.
Give Devin Gardner time in the pocket, and the Michigan quarterback can hurt opponents with his arm or legs. We’ve seen Gardner compile eye-popping stat lines – Notre Dame and Indiana ring a bell? – but poor line play led to an inconsistent and turnover-prone 2013 season. The Wolverines ranked 105th in sacks allowed (2.77 per game), 113th in yards per rush (3.3) and 121st in tackles for a loss allowed (8.77 per game).
Quick! Who is the Big Ten’s returning passing yards leader?
The Big Ten is set to return a ton of talent at quarterback, but the same can’t be said at wide receiver. With names like Jared Abbrederis, Corey Brown, Quincy Enunwa, Jeremy Gallon, Cody Latimer and Allen Robinson all off to the NFL, there will be plenty of new names atop the receiving leader list.
The Badgers took care of business last night. Now, Michigan and Michigan State take center stage in the Sweet 16. The Wolverines battle No. 11 Tennessee, while the Spartans take on No. 1 Virginia. Michigan has a tough task playing the Vols, who are outplaying that No. 11 seed. This is a hot team, going 8-1 since Feb. 26.
Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner has been officially ruled out when the Wolverines take on Kansas State in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl on Saturday. CBSSports.com’s Bruce Feldman reported today Gardner broke his foot early on in the third quarter of the Ohio State game.
No doubt, Michigan’s Jeremy Gallon and Devin Gardner work well together. They’re best friends, they’re a lethal quarterback-receiver tandem, and they’re not afraid to belt out a few tunes. Gallon, the reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week, and Gardner showed off their pipes on #BTNLive Tuesday night. Watch the full interview above and see the singing clip in this post.
The Michigan Wolverines entered Saturday needing a big day from their offense to keep up with the high-scoring Indiana Hoosiers. In a record-setting performance, quarterback Devin Gardner and wide receiver Jeremy Gallon answered the challenge.
With the Michigan football team enjoying a bye week, Devin Gardner and some teammates decided to pay a visit to C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital this week. Gardner hung out with patients during his visit, and he also broke out a solo in a group remediation of “Hakuna Matata.”
It wasn’t pretty, but Michigan held off Akron for a 28-24 win at The Big House on Saturday. It took a come-from-behind win against a team that hasn’t beaten an FBS opponent since 2010 for the Wolverines to extend their FBS-high 17-game home win streak.
Ever see a quarterback wear No. 98? No, of course, you haven’t. Until now, that is. Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner rocked the number typically reserved for defensive lineman vs. Notre Dame on Saturday night, and he will do so for the rest of his career. Gardner, who used to wear No. 12, will wear No. 98 to honor Tom Harmon, Michigan’s first Heisman Trophy winner.

Devin Gardner just got the attention of rival Ohio State. In an interview Monday with “The Huge Show,” a syndicated radio program in Michigan (listen to the full interview), the Michigan quarterback said the Wolverines “will win in the Big House against Ohio State.”
Apparently, Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner and wideout Jeremy Gallon have some good chemistry and mojo. Check out this video posted by Gardner on his Twitter account of him hitting Gallon with a pass—with his eyes closed.

Michigan announced Tuesday that senior/junior quarterback Devin Gardner has been granted a medical hardship for the 2010 season, his freshman campaign in which he suffered a season-ending back injury after three games. The quarterback-turned-receiver-turned-quarterback will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
In a special web-only “Big Ten Football Report” clip, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith each offer up a couple of players Big Ten fans should keep their eye on in 2013. While all four talents are coming off breakout seasons, our guys think each is poised to be even better next fall.
(AP) Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he expects junior Devin Gardner to get a fifth year of eligibility. Hoke says documentation for Gardner’s medical-redshirt request is being sent to the Big Ten.
