I think the sentiments above regarding Denard being underwhelming this year are fair but only because we are spoiled by what Denard has done in the past. We are going to miss him when he is gone and wishing that we had a Davy O'Brien candidate to vote for.
Denard Robinson - Davey Obrien vote now!
As much as it hurts to say... Braxton has had the better year thus far
brian's blind squirrel post under the picture of denard running out of bounds on his long scamper? where it said something to the effect of..."if there's a time and a place to put your body on the line, this is the time..."
if there is a time and place to put reason to the side, this is the time.
If Michigan's defense was half as bad as OSU's, Denard would probably have more offensive production. When they get scored on all day, Braxton has more chances to carry or pass the ball.
more with them. Look, I love Denard same as anyone else on this site, but he's been rather underwhelming this year.
Underwhelming for Denard. Which is stellar for anyone else. Didn't he run for like 800 yards against Purdue? Funny that nobody bats an eye around here about stuff like that anyone.
He's the #100 ranked passer in the nation has thrown 9 interceptions, and fumbled the ball between 3-5 times. I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure that he's turned it over more than any other player in the nation. Against teams with good defenses he's been terrible and the offense has been anemic, Borges can certainly be blamed for some of that, but Denard hasn't really done anything to help him. Denard has consistently missed wide open receivers and made terrible reads in the running game. Just look at how Borges has now decided to use him, the coaches don't even let him throw the ball anymore, they're so scared of him turning it over. Is that what you expect from your 3rd year starting QB?
I love Denard, I really do. He does so many things that make you drop your jaw, but it's becoming clearer that he does just as many things that make you shake your head in dismay.
If Michigan's '10 defense was half as good as today's D, Denard would probably not be approaching the record for qb rusing yards.
I love what ifs as much as the next guy, but this is a poor one.
That's why I voted for Andrew Maxwell. He would be the Heisman front-runner if Narduzzi would just give him a chance.
Submitting this to Reddit too. Hopefully they can help out some there.
im voting for colin klein, sorry
... as one of my favorite players ever? Check.
... as the best QB in the country? My intellectual integrity trumps my fandom.
Agreed. Gotta go with Colin klein
in internet polls
The fan portion of voting is only 5% of the final product by the way.
He doesn't deserve it...Klein is the obvious choice...other better, more qualitifed candidates are Geno Smith, AJ McCarron, and the aforementioned Miller.
verlander, the fuck is going on
EDIT: wrong thread
Is doing the same as well.
Tonight - appropriate in any thread.
My personal integrity tells me I can't let Denard finish behind ANYONE from Ohio . . .
Is the award for the best college athlete through the first half of the season?
This is a real thing?
For those of you voting for someone other than Denard I admire your integrity, but since the fan poll is only 5% of the final award our votes are straight up a beauty contest and most voters will be voting for their school or conference. I want a Michigan win. Denard is not the best QB in the country, but I'd love to see our fanbase show up in force and give Denard the fan vote just to prove we have better fans. Plus it'd be nice to give Denard something after all the amazing moments he's given us. #michigandifference
There are a lot of sparty trolls on this board pretending to be Michigan fans.
Denard isn't the best QB in the nation. Just because he plays for my favorite team doesn't mean that I should vote for him. The kid from Kansas State is getting my vote.
Well he is ahead of B Miller
You can vote once per day and Denard is trailing Braxton again...
