  • Nick Sheridan admits he's a forgotten man at Michigan, but he hasn't given up hope of winning the team's starting quarterback spot this fall, Angelique Chengelis writes in The Detroit News.

I'm not bitter about that. I know what goes on here inside these walls [at Schembechler Hall]. I still feel like I'm in the competition. The best guy is going to play -- I'm at peace with that. Getting all the recognition or being proclaimed the favorite isn't important to me. It doesn't change how I'm going to prepare and compete."
