Earlier in his career, I thought Henne was an insufferable, arrogant jerk. But what 18 year-old kid out there starting at QB for the Michigan Wolverines would be able to prevent any ego from creeping into his persona? That’s pretty heady stuff and I suspect there aren’t many who could handle it smoothly.
Unlike Michigan’s last QB who started all four years of his career at UM (Rick Leach), Henne seemed to outgrow his “prick-ness” as each season passed. I think he has a little work to do with his throwing mechanics, but given the right NFL QB coach, I’m sure he’ll get it done and maybe even enjoy some Tom Brady-like success someday.
I’ll cheer for Henne in the Alamo Bowl (I think that’s where M is heading) and on Sundays in the future. I’ll also cheer for Jake Long because I think he’s a class act, as well.
(I won’t cheer for that short, arrogant, mouthy #20, however. I hope he enjoys his upcoming playing career in Canada).

Love Mike Hart, it'll be neat to see what he does in the NFL. He has a lot working against him (size and being prone to injuries), but his work ethic and heart should get him some pro time, I'm sure.
Long will be a solid lineman in the NFL, probably a pro-bowler eventually. It's disappointing he'll probably go to a crap team based on the premise that he is a top-5 pick. Maybe he'll help turn a team like the 49ers around.

And have you ever separated your shoulder? I have, it's not fun. It's no wonder that he ahd acciracy problems this year. I'm amazed that he could do as much as he did with it.
