Click above for a great article from Wojo in today's Detroit News. The article has several insights into what most of us already recognized as a good relationship (they're roommates, fergodsakes) between competitive friends. It's a really nice read on the eve of Denard Robinson's Michigan swan song.
I was especially impressed by Gardner's thoughts on his transition to being U-M's main man under center for the latter part of the season:
"It sucks the way it happened, something I'd never wish for," Gardner said of Robinson's injury. "It might have been pretty hard on him, but he didn't show it. He didn't sweat anything, and he helped me a lot. That's the thing I really commend him for. Now I'm definitely prepared for it. There's enough pressure at Michigan, so to put added pressure on myself would be insane."
Go Blue, and beat the Gamecocks! And all the best to the senior class!

He also says he's not even sure who is contending with Michigan right now. I haven't done more than exchange one word texts with Derrick pretty much since his official visit, but it shouldn't be a surprise they're leading.
Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year.

Not much to go on, but I did find it interesting FSU was the first to admit him as a mid-term student. Plus looks like he is FOR SURE enrolling early, so we should know by Friday where he's going.
