I'm not sure if my favorite moment of the City Ballers broadcast was the five minute soft jazz elevator music interlude, or when he had a caller on the line, asked if he was Michael Onwenu, and it turned out to be a random State fan.

I'd like to commend Onwenu on being a standup person, in any event. I'm not much for Twitter, but if you look at his page, he was constantly calling attention to other kids, and I've heard it put forth by Brian, among others, that the whole reason that he did all of this was to use his larger portfolio and the Michigan fan following to get his friends' announcements a little bit more attention. He is maybe my new favorite Wolverine the moment he steps foot on the practice field, and I'm very happy to be able to say that he will be a Wolverine, no ifs, ands, or buts.

All the signs pointed to it all along, but the irrational part of me is breathing a sigh of relief.

Onwenu always seemed like he'd be a softy off the field. Not surprising he'd go out of his way to get some publicity for his classmates. And he really doesn't seem like the type of kid that would flip last second on any school. Either way glad to have the reassurance, hopefully it'll quell this recent negativity.
