The Jerk Store Called, and They're Running Out of Henne

*** UPDATE *** Just now saw this same story on MGoBlog....with almost the exact same ideas of "fill in a word for 'jerk'."  Whoops.  Obligatory, unintentional (I swear) non-plajoristic link to MGoBlog's post of the same color goes here.  TMatt can vouch for me...he was on the phone with me when I wrote it.

*** UPDATE UPDATE *** 

EDSBS actually had it first

...I'm sooooooo behind on my blog reading.

Just wanted to make a quick midweek link to the Angel's latest article, which is one of the oddest things I've ever read.  Chad Henne, who is 1500 yards and 2 touchdowns away from removing John Navarre from the Michigan record books, has apparently become a (jerk) during the offseason.  I use parenthesis because the article does:

"It's kind of like being a (jerk) at all times when we're practicing," said Henne, Michigan's four-year starter at quarterback. "If you're not being a (jerk) to them, it's not like they won't respect you, but it's a different look in their eyes -- that, 'OK, we're here to concentrate, we're here to focus and we're here to play hard all the time."

Sooooo, why the parenthesis?  What was the word that was actually used that facilitated the necessity of those ambiguous parens?  I feel like it might have been "asshole."  What if it was "asshole" ?
It's kind of like being a asshole at all times when we're practicing," said Henne, Michigan's four-year starter at quarterback. "If you're not being a asshole to them, it's not like they won't respect you, but it's a different look in their eyes -- that, 'OK, we're here to concentrate, we're here to focus and we're here to play hard all the time.

Fill in your own expletive...prick? dick?  Could it possibly the c-word?  I'm really confused.

In other news...

Mike Hart has been listed as a preseason candidate for the Doak Walker award, trying to become just the second Wolverine ever to win it.  He also needs just 794 yards to pass Anthony Thomas and become Michigan's all-time leading rusher.
