It was reported yesterday that former Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock was cleared by the Big Ten to transfer within the conference without having to sit a year. Not surprisingly, it was simultaneously reported that Rudock would be choosing Michigan.
“If you’re accusing him of bailing on Iowa, not being a true Hawkeye, you’re misguided. He’s not the disloyal one here. Not with the way things were handled.”
“Victories will satisfy the masses but it will be hard to forget how they were attained.”
“But, with the news that former Iowa quarterback and fifth-year senior Rudock will transfer to Michigan, where he will be eligible as soon as he steps on campus, this is no longer a concern for Michigan — or at least a troubling one. Not only does Rudock bring starting experience to the quarterback position — he started in all 25 games he played in for Iowa the past two seasons — he also is a solid Big Ten quarterback that can take care of the football.”
“You know what you’re going to get with him. He’s been a full-time starter in the Big Ten for two years. He’s faced live bullets. He’s had bright moments, low moments and has had the chance to learn from it all in real time.”
Jake Rudock to Michigan huh? 2015 is looking a bit more promising assuming he wins the battle….

Jake Rudock to Michigan is official. We have our game-manager, turnover averse QB for next year, and that's all we need.

Jake Rudock is a nice pick up for the QB competition. Up to what, 6 scholarship QBs for next year? Crazy.
