Braylon Edwards just keeps climbing up the list of my favorite Michigan football alumni. So far this year he's donated $500,000 to the athletic department for football scholarships and $1,000,000 to Cleveland students for academic scholarships. Last weekend, he dedicated his eight-catch, two touchdown performance to the memory of Denzel Douglas, a 15-year-old kid he met while visiting him in the hospital. Douglas died last week as a result of his body rejecting his heart transplant. He'll be buried in the jersey and with the football Braylon signed for him. Between his and Mike Hart's charity work, I'm so proud to be even remotely associated with this program. They're true Michigan Men.
