3. Not playing Alex Orji is not concerning at all
A lot of folks have been voicing their opinion on not seeing quarterback Alex Orji through two weeks. He was supposed to be involved as a possible kick returner and you would have had to assume that he would get some snaps behind the center by now.
He’s been nowhere to be found making this an overreaction. Getting Orji more reps is a must just in case for the unknown of 2024.
Orji is in the running for the backup quarterback position with Jack Tuttle and Davis Warren. Unless he is secretly hurt and the Wolverines haven’t told anyone, then there is no reason that he shouldn’t be on the gridiron in some capacity. Orji could be a valuable piece to wherever he lines up and a key piece to the future of the Michigan football program.
It would have been favorable to see more of Tuttle on Saturday too, but that didn’t happen. Getting him some work in the passing game next week, if the staff decides to play him, has got to be the game plan that is materializing.
