"O, Canada..." It's been a while since we've heard from  Tate Forcier. That's about to change as former the Michigan quarterback has signed to play with the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats. "I'm so excited and happy to have this chance after everything I've gone through," said Forcier, 21. Forcier will likely begin his professional career as a backup to veteran Henry Burris. Forcier said he reports to Hamilton at the end of the month and the season begins in June." "Everything he's gone through" includes a tumultuous college career at  Michigan, where he eventually was benched in favor of Denard Robinson, and later kicked off the team for academic issues. It will be interesting to see if he can turn his football career around in the Great White North. (via ESPN)
