Mike Hart is the mouth that roars
Rose Bowl Media Day was held on Saturday, December 30, 2006, and star running back Mike Hart was one of the Michigan players who was in the spotlight. Shawn Windsor of the Detroit Free Press wrote an article in yesterday's paper entitled "Loquacious RB is heart, soul of Michigan team." The verbose Hart rushed for 1,515 yards in 2006 which placed him 7th best in the nation this season. For his career, Hart has rushed for a total of 3,632 yards (#6 in Michigan history) and he is only 840 yards from becoming Michigan's all-time leading rusher. Hart had a welcome interruption during his Saturday press conference as he received a visit from Traverse City National Cherry Queen Kaley Schroeder. (pictured above). National Cherry Queen Schroeder pinned a cherry sticker on a smiling Hart's jersey as he fielded questions from the media. However, come game time on Monday, Hart will be all business and will likely be up to his usual verbal sparring with the opponents. Go Blue!
