Nice piece by Mike Rothstein about Devin Gardner and his commitment to Michigan and family, how his mother and brother, David, helped mold him into the man he is today. 

Also, bonus points for the 3 boys being named David, Gavin, and Devin.

Rothstein article on Gardner's split time

Rothstein article on Gardner's split time

A nice little article from WolverineNation about Gardner splitting time.

They get input from Drew Bennett, which is a nice touch. Bennett was a heralded QB recruit who split time between QB and WR at UCLA while working under Borges. Want more 'it's a small world?' According to the article, at that time, Borges travelled to Ann Arbor to speak with Carr about how Michigan was managing with a certain two way player of their own, one Charles Woodson.

If you don't know, Bennett went on to be an NFL WR, something that I imagine had to make the split time appealing to Gardner. If Borges could get Bennett drafted at WR, he sure as heck can do it for Gardner.

A2.com's Mike Rothstein just published this story with the results of an informal poll conducted with Michigan football players.  Topics covered include:

  • Most exciting player in the Big Ten this year (John Clay)
  • Most overrated player in the Big Ten this year (TP)
  • Hardest hitter on the Wolverines defense (Jonas Mouton)
  • College football team you rooted for before joining the Wolverines (Michigan)
  • Most embarrassing football memory (Various)

Best answer to the last question:

"When I was in sixth grade, I was playing a game and my pants were way too big, so I had them taped on. I ran for a long touchdown, and as soon as I crossed the goal line, my pants fell to my ankles." - Stephen Hopkins.

Apparently, there's going to be a part 2 to this.
