I may have missed this, so if I did apologies, but I just saw on ESPN that Obi Ezeh is one of 16 semi-finalists for this year's Butkus Award, aka Best Linebacker. Now, I would be shocked (shocked!) if he made it past the next round of elimination, and frankly I'm more than a little surprised he even made it this far, but good for him. Nice to see a dedicated Michigan man get some attention for his work.
"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
