“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Here is a link to the Jacksonville Jaguars' video report on yesterday's training camp. At 2:10, watch for a preview of the Henne-to-Robinson connection we keep waiting for: http://www.jaguars.com/media-gallery/videos/Inside-the-Jaguars-2014-Trai...
Mostly the usual puff piece, but check out the shoelaces. Looks like the Jaguars are finally letting Shoelace free! (sorry about that)
PREVIOUSLY OT because NFL, But NOT EVEN Semi-OT because Dilithium.
Denard Robinson is apparently making people sit up and take notice this offseason:
Ex-Jaguar Jeff Lageman, who now serves as the team’s radio analyst, said Robinson has had “the best offseason of anyone.”
I personally am very interested to see Robinson succeed at the next level, even if at RB. I could even envision a GOOD RB "Oh Noes!" type of play with Robinson getting the hand-off, heading to the line, and popping a quick slant to the Slot receiver.
Here's hoping Robinson's predictions this season come true:
And Robinson himself says he thinks people are going to be excited by what they see of him this season. “I want to be a dangerous playmaker,” Robinson said. “When they give me the ball, I want to be that guy where everybody in the stadium goes, ‘Whoa!’”
EDIT: So, in trying to avoid a controversy, kerfuffle, hubbub, ruckus, furor, or general pandemonium over whether this was OT or not, I inadvertantly invited a kerfuffle, hubbub, ruckus, furor, and general pandemonium.
Title modified. Dilithium Robinson shall heretofore NEVER be considered OT!!! The people have spoken!!!
Because I'll never get tired of reading about Denard Robinson. Ever.
He's bulked about about 15 pounds and appears to still have his same game breaking speed, but more importantly he's shown reliable hands thus far in OTA practices, not dropping a single pass.

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?
