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."

That wasn't all he said. Here's the full quote: "We always have room for improvement, but this is definitely a championship-caliber football team that will win in the Big House against Ohio State. We don't feel like we're inferior to anyone in the country, and we're going to give it our all."

Nothing wrong with a little confidence and a summer guarantee, right? This will get played up more than it should (hey, we're guilty!), because, well, it's the summer, and because it's a Michigan-Ohio State prediction.

No doubt, we'll hear plenty more about this before the Wolverines host Big Ten preseason favorite Ohio State on Nov. 30.

Last season, in his fourth start after taking over for an injured Denard Robinson, Gardner and Michigan lost, 26-21, at Ohio State. The quarterback-turned-receiver-turned quarterback had the worst performance of his five-game stint under center, with season lows in completions (11), passing yards (171) and touchdown passes (1), to go along with an interception, minus-28 rushing yards and a rushing score.
