Devin Gardner has taken a lot of heat during his time at Michigan, but how much of it is deserved? If you ask someone who's knowledgeable in the sport of football and has watched him play, they'd probably tell you very little blame actually rests on Gardner. Just in case you say he is to blame though, here are five numbers that should change your mind.
Gardner tossed for 503 and 451 yards in those two games, respectively, which both rank as the first and second best single-game performances in Michigan history.
That ranks as the second best single-season passing performance in Michigan history, behind only John Navarre's 3,331 yards in 2003.
Keep in mind, Gardner's career under center comes out to roughly a year and a half, but still ranks ninth in career passing yards at Michigan.
Gardner threw one interception in his final six games.
After throwing 10 picks in the first six games of the season, Gardner settled down and only threw a single interception (@ Michigan State) in the final six games of the season.
Gardner threw 236 total yards AFTER breaking his foot against Ohio State.
Gardner broke his foot (and fumbled) on Michigan's second drive of the third quarter against Ohio State. From that point on, he accounted for 236 total yards. Not too bad, huh?
