Tate Forcier’s Girlfriend (Ex?) Elizabeth Wertenberger Crowned Miss Michigan

Tate Forcier’s recent run of negative news finally came to an end this weekend when his girlfriend (or former girlfriend), Elizabeth Wertenberger, was crowned Miss Michigan this weekend. Since last college football season, Forcier lost his starting quarterback job to Denard Robinson, fell to third on the Michigan depth chart, was academically ineligible for the team’s bowl game, transferred to Miami, decided not to go to Miami, and was hospitalized for a bizarre incident at an apartment building. The incident at the apartment building reportedly took place at his girlfriend’s, so it’s possible that the woman in question was Wertenberger.

In the Detroit Free Press’ story on Werternberger winning, they called her Forcier’s one-time girlfriend. They also report that Forcier was celebrating with her, so we’re taking that to mean the two are still on good terms and potentially dating. Here are more pictures of Elizabeth Werternberger:

Tate Forcier Transferring to Miami, Will be Strong Competition for Stephen Morris

After falling to third on the depth chart at Michigan behind superstar Denard Robinson and backup Devin Gardner, Tate Forcier decided to transfer schools. Forcier is an athletic speedster who was hyped as a potential savior for the Wolverines only two seasons ago. His play dropped off and he was replaced by Robinson (a concussion also factored into the change), and now he’s looking to move on.

It was announced on Wednesday that Forcier has decided to transfer to Miami, canceling visits to Arizona, Washington, Montana, and Kansas State. Miami has Jacory Harris returning for his senior season next year, and Stephen Morris who will be a sophomore.

Harris has been largely ineffective most of his career, and a big reason why Randy Shannon was fired in my opinion. If the new coaching staff is wise, they’ll choose Stephen Morris as the team’s starter. So if Morris has three seasons left, why would Forcier choose to transfer to Miami?
