Michigan's biggest issue on defense Saturday will be the same thing that has plagued the Wolverines' opponents all year -- how to defend the mobile quarterback.

While Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase doesn't have the speed Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson does, he is one of the Big Ten's most versatile signal-callers. Like Robinson, opponents have to worry continuously about him pulling the ball down and trying to make plays as a rusher -- more so than as a passer.

"Scheelhaase is a really versatile quarterback," Michigan defensive lineman Ryan Van Bergen said. "Looking at some of the numbers this year, he's become a better passer, and he's going to be more difficult to defend than he was last year.
