“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.”
Not to poop on the parade, but is anyone else worried about whether at 193 pounds, Denard Robinson can take the physical beating of thirty rushes every week (plus any hits when he's dropping back to pass). Most feature back are heavier than that and often don't run as often. I'm worried both for his long-term health and, more immediately, whether he can make it through the season unscathed. If not, can we can be the team we want to be if he misses a couple, or several, games.
I might just be seeing things, but does anyone else think Denard looks like Desmond? When I saw this photo on ESPN, I really saw a similarity.
(Sorry, had trouble with the hyperlink)
The comparison is easier to see if you imagine, or remove, Denard's dreads from the picture.
My apologies if this was covered sometime in the past.
Edit: Of course, both men have award winning smiles to match.
Blake is one of the top recruiters in the nation, this must mean he has some blood on his hands involving some of NC's problems. It's a free for all on NC recruits.
I just think it's worth taking a moment to show Tate Forcier some love today. As a competitor, it must be so frustrating for him right now. With a lesser QB, we might be dealing with a public tantrum.
But as far as I've heard and seen, he has handled his recent demotion with class, putting the team first.
Though I'd never wish injury upon anyone (especially Denard), we may need Tate. And lord knows he did some great things for us in the past. If called upon, it's nice knowing we've got a talented, team-first guy waiting in the wings. As I recall, Brian Griese was benched at one point. Things worked out pretty well for him in the end.
Go blue! Hang in there Tate!
I'll stop short of saying that Robinson will transform a team that hasn't been to a bowl game in a couple of years into a BCS title contender this season. But he makes the Wolverines dangerous, and as long as he can stay healthy, they will be a handful for anyone in the Big Ten. -Feldman
It's so nice to hear optimism in the media for the Wolverines. I just wanted to share this tidbit with the Community. Feel free to share your thoughts on the matter.
