Recap of his Sportscenter interview: He says that he doesn't know how it happened but the end result was because of the Michigan team playing together. Chris Fowler tells him his stats, and Denard says, "WHAT?!" and hides his face in his hands. He credits Borges for having had Michigan work on last-second plays all summer. He credits ND for being a tough opponent and playing a great game. He credits Tate Forcier for starting the three straight last-second victories. He is obviously enthralled with the fans in the stands having stayed after the game and the group experience of the Michigan faithful...What a kid.
Could there be a more likeable kid than Denard (even putting aside his play)?
Just a tremendous representative of our school. He is literally the opposite of the worlds Terrelle Pryors and Cam Newtons.
tremendous usage of the word tremendous.
What a great kid enjoying the college experience!
Notre dame has officially chose Denard Robinson as its Big Daddy pimp where they will now refer to him as "A Pimp Name Shoelace "
Just like we've honored #21, I am postive that #16 will be honored in the future. He is our program right now.
And I think you are right in your prediction.
#1 play on sportscenter plus the elite performance. Absolutely deserved. In the 4th quarter:
70% completion, 202 pass yards, 20.2 ypa, 3 td (1 int). WOW.
from his interview:
DRob was humble about his 450yd performance and hyped the atmosphere at the game and gave props to the students for still being there- "I wanna keep this jersey... I just wanna remember all this. Look at all this stuff right here, man. lookat the fans. THEY STILL HERE! The game is over!"
Man, throw the deep ball and he's even more ridiculous.
I was getting frustrated early in the game with Denard's passing. The kid is just magic.
But, for everyone out there.....something more important. 10 years today...NEVER FORGET!
I DARE someone to try and DISLIKE Denard Robinson. Impossible. He's everything good about College football.
But all I want to do is share my smiles.
THE GAME IS OVER!!!!!!!!!!! Man...............you gotta love him.
The dude has just an infectious positive attitude. The "WHAT!?!?!" was fantastic. The smile and "The game is over!", god, if ever I need a pick me up I am going to replay that interview in my head.
anyone have a link to the video of Denard's postgame interview from sportscenter? would love to be able to see it
For seeing the potential in Denard and getting him to Michigan. Don't get me wrong, I think Hoke will be great for Michigan football, but I wonder if he would've recruited DB.
Whether it was dumb luck or profound insight on the part of RR and staff,,Denard Robinson through on-field performance and sheer personality is the equivalent of the Fab-Five to Michigan Basketball (without the scandal).
I would bet there are at least 20 4-5 star recruits in the next 10 years+ that choose UM based on childhood memories of #16.
---And to think I was cursing his passing ability through most of the first 3 qtrs!!! (He still needs work on the deep ball or this would not have be close.)
Great looking at this team and thinking they will only get better in the coming games and years!
I am glad the former players have come back. They saw an effort tonight worthy of any of them.
Denard will never buy a drink or mealin Ann Rbor until the day he dies (after graduation, of course)
but i loved the "WHAT?" as well. sorry for the poor quality (recorded on my phone).
He's a better person than player, which would almost seem impossible after watching him play.
