out of bounds late in the first half of
Saturday's 39-7 loss to Oregon. He

joined the team.
Mallett struggled in his debut,
finishing 6-of-17 for 49 yards and
one interception. But the Texar-
kana, Texas native impressed his
teammates with his poise and con-
fidence in the huddle.
"He was real calm, he didn't seem
that shook up or anything," senior
wide receiver Adrian Arrington
said. "He just tried to get out there
and act like it was practice. Just call
the plays, go through his reads and
try and make the right calls."
Mallett enrolled at Michigan
last winter in order to adjust to the
rigors of both college football and
academics. He was able to practice
with the team during the spring,
and thatgave him an edge that most
freshman quarterbacks don't have.
Henne came to Michigan the
July before his freshman year and
only participated in conditioning
drills and fall practice with the team
before being thrown into the fire.
"It's kind of like (Mallett was) a
redshirt freshman almost because
he was here all spring learning the
offense," senior tri-captain Jake
Long said. "He was here all sum-
mer, and then during camp he just
fine-tuned what he needed to about
the offense, and I think that gives
him confidence. It gives everybody
else around him confidence. And I
think he's going to do well at that
