The Jacksonville Jaguars had Denard lining up in the shotgun formation at QB during Wednesday's OTA practice. Looks like his QB days are not over. The last line of the article predicts that if Denard does well, he could be reclassified from RB to QB in the future.
Title says it all. Denard will attend minicamp today in Jacksonville, today, then will head to Ann Arbor for graduation tomorrow. Gotta love this kid, even though it's no surprise.
Will miss him in A2
5th round draft pick, 135th overall. Congratulations Denard!
Title says it all. His shoes being untied may be giving him a speed advantage.
According to a tweet from Trey Wingo:
"@WingoZ: Former Michigan QB Denard Robinson joins us today on NFL Live at 7:00 on ESPN2"
I'll be on the road, but one thing Denard has gotten very good at over his last 4 years is media interviews. Here's hoping it's a good one.
From the end of the article:
The University of Michigan, for instance, is a Big Ten member with an endowment of about $8 billion. If it wants a field hockey team, it can most certainly afford one. Cutting football players past and present in on some of the tens of millions that program generates or allowing them to profit off their own likeness or to put a percentage of jersey sales into a trust fund, isn't going to bankrupt the school. And if Title IX can't be reworked (and it almost assuredly can), then Michigan would do just that to comply with federal law.
What Delany is saying is that left to its own decision, Michigan won't see field hockey as worth the money. He's acknowledging that outside the myopic prism of the athletic department, gold-plated, non-revenue sports don't make much sense.
Right now Michigan athletics gets 100 percent of the revenue and things roll on. If the players get a cut, then it will have to "reduce opportunities for student-athletes overall."
So it's the players' share of the revenue – the money the O'Bannon case is trying to divert – that is propping up the other sports … the same other sports that Delany doesn't believe the university itself considers a sound investment.
Which begs a simple, if inadvertent question: if Michigan doesn't think it should pay for a field hockey team, then why does it think Denard Robinson should?
