Denard did a short interview with an AP sports writer. I'd suggest clicking on the link at the bottom to read through the article as a whole. It has quotes from both Borges and Denard. For those who don't want to leave MGoBlog, here are a few of the quotes from the article:
Denard on his position in the NFL:
“I’m planning on being a quarterback,” Robinson said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “We’ll see what happens.”
Al Borges on Denard's future:
“It’s a big spring and it’ll be a big season for Denard in that regard,” offensive coordinator Al Borges said. “If he can take the next step as a passer, there will be a team that will tailor an offense to his skill level, just like the Denver Broncos did with Tim Tebow. But Denard’s got to improve in the passing game and he knows that.”
Denard on what he wants to improve:
“I’ve got to be a better leader,” he said. “I have to do things on and off the field that help us accomplish our goal of winning the Big Ten championship.”
Denard on attending Michigan basketball games:
“That showed me that it was a great decision that me and coach Hoke made,” Robinson said. “I’m enjoying college life. I’m having fun with it.”
Borges on Denard's second season in the offense
“We should see it with the timing of his throws and him having a better grasp of route structures, audibles and protection checks,” Borges said. “He’ll also improve with decision-making, knowing when to throw it away and when not to run. And if he can get better with his footwork issues in the pocket, it should reduce interception and increase his completion percentage.”
Well, I ended up taking all the quotes from the article, but still read through the full article for some coherency and some fluff.
He tweeted it. Don't know if it was his or the coaches doing.
I recently have been getting into twitter and I was looking for players to follow. I noticed a while ago Ondre Pipkins has some great tweets. I can't seem to find him and it looks like he doesnt have an account anymore. Anyone have any insight to this and if maybe he got into trouble with twitter? I know he made it very clear he wasn't happy with Josh Garnett lying to him, but that is all I can remember as of most recently. Slow recruiting day...
[EDIT]: I found this incase anyone is looking to follow Michigan football players:
Andrew did an interview with Sione Houma late last week and posted it this morning over at TTB. He talks about the importance of the fullback position and what size the coaches want him to be, along with his favorite instrument to play. Plus there's a separate video interview embedded.
Something that we've all been hoping for has finally happened: No more Craig James. Craig James is not returning to ESPN next year as per:
...ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz essentially eliminated the prospect of James returning to the network.
ESPN’s Krulewitz: “We have no intention of bringing Craig James back in the future.”
Thus ends the second tenure of James at ESPN, which began in 2003. James, whose ESPN contract expires before the 2012 football season, also worked for ESPN in the early ’90s following his NFL playing career.
While I am somewhat saddened by the prospect of not reading about how CRAIG JAMES KILLED 5 HOOKERS during Saturday liveblogs this fall, I am pretty happy that we don't have to hear his constant hatred of Michigan during every single game on ESPN.
Any thoughts on who will replace him?
I know, I know, it's SportsByBrooks but this article isn't a sensationalist one. Even if it was, the main take from the article and the quote is from an ESPN rep. I doubt that he's lying about it.
Oh, and even though the article is old, I did a bunch of searches and didn't see it posted.
Yes, I know most of you don't want to see this defensive performance, but it's fun seeing Michigan's offense in this game. Roundtree set single game recieving yards record.
