Fuck Drew Henson.
Henson fondly remembers time with Michigan
1st, remember that Juan Gonzalez vetoed a trade from the Tigers to the Yankees that would have given the Tiger's Drew Henson's rights and thus he would most likely have played his senior season at Michigan because the Tiger's would not have thrown Yankee level money at him.
Then, read this and remember what he did for us that Henne and Hart did not....
Q: Returning to your days at Michigan, what is your favorite Michigan football memory? DH: My favorite memory is pretty easy. It's going down to Columbus and beating Ohio State in 2000 to win the Big Ten.
Because Chad Henne is not the person I think of when I think of great Michigan quarterbacks.
Lots of them have beaten OSU. None of the others abandoned their team when they were supposed to start because a Buckeye offered them a contract on the condition that they leave Michigan.
I remember being disappointed when Drew left the team for the Yanks. At the time, I thought Michigan got played by Stienbrenner (Ohio alum).
Drew was a great quarterback and we all had confidence in him. I'm sorry he didn't finish out his college days with Michigan, but money talks and baseball was winning a lot of those battles back then.
It would be fun to hear him call a game in A2 someday!
It still makes me sad to think about his story (very well documented in the espn special) and what could have been for him and Michigan. Subjectively speaking, he's the best I've ever seen playing college football.
