Forcier's girlfriend named Miss Michigan

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Life hasn't been great for Tate Forcier for the last 12 months or so. After spending the majority of his freshman season as Michigan's starting quarterback, he lost the job to Denard Robinson in 2010 and was limited to weekly "Denard Robinson is hurt" time in Michigan's games. Then, to end the season, Forcier was academically ineligible to play in the Gator Bowl and announced his transfer from the school shortly after. Forcier ended up at Miami for a bit, but left Coral Gables as well and is currently a quarterback without a huddle.

Then there was that strange incident that led to Forcier being hospitalized.

Tate finally got some good news last week, however, as his girlfriend Elizabeth Wertenberger was crowned Miss Michigan.

Forcier, who was kicked off the Michigan team in the off-season, wrote today in a text message that he was celebrating with her. Forcier told the Free Press in December they were dating. She was crowned Saturday after four days of competition at Muskegon's Frauenthal Center for the Performing Arts and will compete for the Miss America title later this year in Las Vegas.

So Tate has that going for him, which is nice.
