ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- It's no secret that Jake Rudock's improved play as the season progressed has put Michigan in the position it's in currently to potentially win 10 games this season.
Rudock wasn't expected to do the things he did this season, it especially didn't look that way to start the season against Utah. He did one thing that every football player must do if he wants to be successful at any level.
He got better every week.
That improvement U-M offensive lineman Graham Glasgow saw first hand.
"In my mind Jake is my MVP," Glasgow said. "I think he was huge for us this year and I think its going to leave big shoes for the following guys, the next crop of quarterbacks, to fill."
The football team's annual football bust will take place Monday night where various awards will be handed out to the players. For Rudock, many of U-M's player have voted for him as the most valuable player of the team and would not be a surprise to see him win this award. For a program that has been looking for a stable presence at quarterback, and for someone who was only going to be around for a year, Glasgow says he set the bar fairly high.
"He set the bar pretty high I would say," Glasgow said. "If you look back at past quarterback play, without him we wouldn't be here. The quarterbacks need to step up next year."
