this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I am sure whoever watched the Colts-Chiefs game yesterday got reminded of that 2011 UTL TD by Denard
1:23 mark in the 2011 UTL video
Trying to embed in OP for the first time, so apologies in advance if it does not work. Here are the direct links -
EDIT: The embed seems to have worked, but could not fix the starting time in second youtube embed to 1:23. Mods please fix if you can. Thanks!
I see so, so many people complaining about the lack of a steady offensive concept, and an effective one, and I'm trying to understand the complaints as they relate to this year. I want to know what other people think as far as how the loss of a record setter affects a team going forward.
The past four years, Denard Robinson has been the face of Michigan Football. When the offense was working, he was amazing. When the offense wasn't working, he was still amazing. How many times did a play or an entire game almost fall apart entirely only to become "DO SOMETHING DENARD! Oh, wow... did you see what he did? DID YA!?!"
What I want to know is, what do fans think is a reasonable amount of time for a program to find its identity going forward following four years of DENARD DO SOMETHING football? Pre season? One game? Four? One Season?
I personally think that once you no longer have, nor expect to have, Denard Robinson\ in your backfield, it makes sense that you would at first try to go the other way, to bring some sense into your game, since so often, plays with Denard made no sense, and that's what made them awesome. I would, in fact, expect somewhere between one half and one full season, the team would start to figure out what works and what doesn't following four years of having a guy that made nothing and everything work.
What's your timeline?
Heading toward one of the biggest mismatches in NFL history, Esquire says Jacksonville's only chance against the Broncos is to deploy Denard (with video). Hey it can't hurt.
Wish he was getting more opportunities.
"Of course we've got to say Ohio [State's] the biggest one," Robinson said. "[Then] Notre Dame and [No. 3] Michigan State, our little brothers."
I like it I enjoy the little jabs in rivalries. It really gets State all riled up and I love seeing State fans get all mad its like watching a monster child who is 3 years old.
Was looking for highlights of Denard in his first game, and found him featured in the Jags "Wired" video. Some Denard chatter and singing, but also some field level film of him trying to get it going, Link: http://www.jaguars.com/media-gallery/videos/Jags-Wired-Denard-Robinson/ea6231e6-fc76-412c-a310-e187e3b77bef
Accoding to the Jacksonville Jaguars' twitter, Denard has changed his number back to something we are all a little more familiar with:
