From Mark Snyder's dispatch tody in the Freep (my emphasis in bold):
"Forcier 'pumped' - M quarterback Tate Forcier has not spoken to the Detroit media since last season but touched base with his hometown paper, the San Diego Union-Tribune, for his thoughts on U-M scheduling San Diego State for 2011."
"I'm super-pumped for this game," Forcier told the paper. "Honestly, San Diego State is a team right in my backyard, and they didn't show me any love or attention. (Former) coach (Chuck) Long didn't pay much attention to me, which was surprising because I showed some interest in them. So I'm really looking forward to playing them."
Oh dear, Tate; you mean you haven't spoken to the Detroit media since last season? What a great idea! I'd make Tate a Team Captain on that basis alone. Pissing off Mark Snyder ought to be a team goal right behind "Winning the Big Ten Championship."
