"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
Football Tate Forcier
I didn't find this posted yet; I was listening to WTKA on the way home last night and heard this info from a caller who's been at practice and knows the Forcier family; it's worth a listen:
5B - Even More Wingless Helmet
Before I heard this, I was worried that Tate's head still wasn't screwed on straight. I'm glad to hear Tate understands what's going on, knows what he needs to do, and is working hard to get the job done.
I am a Tate supporter, I belive he should be our stater. But i think its strange how he is battling HARD to keep his job, and yet some think he is one of the top 50 QBs in the country.
I was listening to 97.1 on my way home from work today and Valenti kept mentioning news regarding Tate Forcier and a post by his father on his website (www.qbforce.com)
He said they would get to it tomorrow because people wanted to talk about Ernie and the Wings, but when I got home and perused the site, I couldn't find anything of interest. Usually these guys are so far behind (and ass-backwards) on relevant news regarding Michigan, and I figure Brian would have mentioned it already if it was important. I couldn't find anything on the mgoBoard as well, I'm just assuming this is the typical Michigan non-story that Valenti and Foster will try to make into a scandal.
Anyone else hear about this?
