The quarterback position was a big mystery when Michigan commenced preparations for this football season.

Speight has exceeded all expectations and attempts to help the No. 3 Wolverines remain unbeaten when they visit Iowa on Saturday.

Ironically, Speight considered transferring prior to Harbaugh’s first season after being berated by coach in the spring of 2015.

Speight and his family investigated leaving before he decided to remain with the Wolverines.

Things are working out well now for Speight and Michigan and he enters the game against the Hawkeyes with 2,053 yards and 15 touchdowns against three interceptions.

Iowa is just one game off the pace in the Big Ten West despite its recent struggles.

Michigan’s defense has had few issues all season long as the unit leads the nation in scoring defense, total defense, passing defense and third-down conversion defense.

The Wolverines have lost in each of their last three visits to Iowa so nobody is taking the Hawkeyes lightly.
