"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.
Let's here the predictions. Assuming that Denard starts. Will he rush for over or under 100 yds against UConn? Also, Over/Under 1,000 yds on the season? I personally think he'll rush for over 100 vs. UConn but just shy of 1,000 for the year. What say you?
Denard's gotta play both ways...QB & CB
He can do it.
Dr Saturday has an article in which he makes his hyper-specific predictions about the Big 10 this year. The stuff directly relevant to Michigan:
* After posting dreadful –12 and –10 turnover margins the last two years with wholly inexperienced quarterback platoons, Michigan will roughly break even on the giveaway/takeaway scale, bumping overall scoring to more than 30 points per game despite failing to decide on incumbent Tate Forcier or spring star Denard Robinson as the full-time quarterback.
* The Wolverines will break even on the season, as well, coming in at 6-6 after giving Ohio State a run for its money in the regular season finale, sneaking into a lower-tier bowl game and (barely) saving Rich Rodriguez's job into 2011.
Just like everyone else around here, I am now in MGoSlappy mode. The countdown vid was awesome and blog entries are becoming more frequent. I have now spent the last hour and a half in a lunch break UofM blogging stooper. I was reading BHGP's summary of this seasons Wolverine defense. I then scrolled down to read the comments and I came across this...."It’s pretty clear from RR’s career that his system only works if he’s got all-galaxy athleticism at the QB position." The child then goes on to say this, "RR isn’t a Meyer or Tressel or Saban or Ferentz when it comes to developing talent (or recruiting it)." I immediately became defensive. As if I had a choice.
Does anyone else think that Denard could be much more productive than anticipated? Like, say, maybe this productive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_73bsdVi_c&feature=related (sorry, I don't know how to display video)
I hope actual opposing teams are looking at this Michigan offense the same way some of those uneducated Iowa fans are.
Michigan's Pat White; Denard Robinson

I searched and did not see this posted already. If I missed it, feel free to lambast me.
I like that Denard is gunning to be an NFL QB. Who knows if he can make it, but it certainly won't hurt his motivation to become the best passer he can be while at Michigan. Could you imagine if he becomes an accurate passer and an efficient manager of the offense? With his elusiveness as a runner? We'd be unstoppable.
