...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
Per Tania Ganguli's Twitter, Chad Henne has signed with the Jags for two years. Adam Schefter confirms. Not the greatest team in the world, but it does give him an awesome chance to start thanks to a very questionable Blaine Gabbert.
As Schefter reported earlier, the Jags also signed WR Laurent Robinson (Dallas) for five years/$32.5 million. That at least gives him someone decent to throw to downfield. It'll be sad not to see Jake Long pass protecting for Henne anymore, but maybe he can be reunited with a former WR teammate like Manningham or Braylon.

Given that we've almost wrapped up the 2013 class - I'll start maintaining the 2014 offer board
This has been derived from the 2013 offer board, so credit to wlubd for creating the template.
Texas SDE and Michigan offer Christian LaCouture (3*, has offers from LSU and Mizzou also) has decommitted from Texas A&M and plans on visiting Michigan sometime in the relatively near future. I'm at work now so can't go further into detail, but that's the important part.
Slow time on the board, so I've decided to put together a short list of my personal All Time Michigan Hype Team. Players who were hyped to oblivion by one sector of the fanbase or media or the other, but never really turned into what was hoped. I refrain from including any current players as their books are not yet written so who knows what might happen. I don't write this list as a "man this guy sucked," but more of a "if only he had lived up to the hype." Many of these guys were just the unfortunate victim of injury or circumstance that never worked out. I encourage you to add your own.
QB: Drew Henson, Clayton Richard,
RB: Sam McGuffie, Kevin Grady, Justin Fargas, Pierre Rembert
WR: Antonio Bass (captain of the team and legend in our hearts), Darryl Stonum, Carl Tabb, Je'Ron Stokes
TE: Chris Barnett
OL: Marques Slocum (Fuck Lion), Corey Zirbel, Dann O'neill
DL: Shantee Orr, Larry Harrison, Eugene Germany, Anthony LaLota,
LB: Cobrani Mixon, Marcus Witherspoon, Taylor Hill, Kellen Jones
DB: Darnell Hood, Quiton McCoy, Boubacar Cissoko, Vlad Emilien, JT Turner, Cullen Christian, Demar Dorsey,
K/P: Nate DeLong (sentimental pick. my brother was his HS teammate and long snapper, incredible athlete and had a tremendous leg, just never worked out at M, sadly.)
WolverineNation uploaded a video of the Pee Wee (NTPW) team that Devin Funchess, Terry Richardson, James Ross and Royce Jenkins-Stone played on. It has Ross, Richardson and Jenkin's Stone talking and joking about their past Pee Wee team.
I personally think it's awesome that we have 4 guys coming to play for us who have played together for so long.
Interesting read on Shane Morris over on ESPN:
I really like this kid. He should give us a few great soundbites in the years to come...
