It is officially the offseason at Michigan. Spring football is over. The basketball banquet has concluded. Graduation comes in a couple of weeks, as does the NFL Draft.

But the Mailbag keeps churning along.

Send your questions to @chanteljennings on Twitter or jenningsespn@gmail.com for next week’s edition and remember, the mailbag is only as good as the questions that are asked.

With that, on to your questions this week:

tony.wilson asks: Who would win in a fight, Mike Martin or a grizzly bear?

Tony,
There are a lot of caveats to this. Does Martin have any sort of weapon? Is this strictly hand-to-hand combat. Is it at night or during the day? As tough as Martin is I think I’d go with the bear in this version of Man vs. Animal. The bear’s natural claws and likely height/weight advantage gives the grizzly the advantage. Now if Martin can somehow sweep the leg with a wrestling move and get the bear on the ground, he could have a fighter’s chance. But those claws, man...those claws.

goblue_jb asks: Devin Gardner didn’t show much in the way of passing skills during the spring game, yet the coaches sing his praises about the work he does in practice and we all know he's a tremendous athlete. Do you think his tendency to quickly tuck and run was more about nerves during the spring game?
