The guys about to be a fourth year starting quarterback for one of the most elite programs in all of college football. Three straight season of at least 20 touchdowns. Three straight seasons of at least 2,500 yards. A 29-10 record at the helm. And how do his Wolverine teammates indicate their faith in him? By not naming him a captain of course!
Michigan offensive lineman Jake Long, tailback Mike Hart and linebacker Shawn Crable have been elected captains by their teammates.
“The greatest honor a Michigan football player can receive is to be selected by his teammates as captain,” U-M coach Lloyd Carr said in a release.
Unfortunately for Henne, he will not be receiving such an honor. I guess Wolverine fans will be quick to point out one number — 3. As in 0-3 against Ohio State. Maybe that’s why. Man, I’d hate to be standing inside that huddle for a two-minute drill.
