There Are Chad Henne Days to Michigan Football

Gregory Shamus

One week. That's all that remains until opening Saturday in Ann Arbor. All the off season hi jinx, NCAA tomfoolery, hit pieces, scandals, and replays of painful losses will just float away come sunrise on that day. Michigan Stadium has sat dormant for too long, the sidelines empty, clamoring for the rumble of band, team and fans. Our countdown series continues down the home stretch, honoring the players and games of Michigan lore.

Talk to anyone who attended Michigan or watched them play football between 2004-2007, and the phrase "Henne to Braylon" or "Henne to Manningham" will be uttered. Whether it was the inconceivable comeback against Michigan State in three overtimes, the laser beams he threw to corners of end zones, or the other comeback against Michigan State, Henne was the hero of my college life. I'm still convinced no other Michigan quarterback can throw the end zone fade as good as Henne did. His most impressive among his Michigan records are the 87 career touchdown passes, and 9,715 yards...not likely to be equaled for awhile, if ever.
