"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
Congrats Denard. Great picture, look who is right behind him. Team.
Richard Ash needs to show me more with the clapping. Hold the rope!
Tate is looking of his shoulder. "How's your hand Denard?" haha j/k.
Haha that is great. I freakin love it.
Awesome but I'd like to see the guitar get an upgrade.
No shit. Denard would totally rock a Flying V.
the action figure with a silver football comes close :)
This is hands down the most awesome thing I have ever seen. A thousand thank yous in your general direction.
Congrats to Denard on a great season. It's nice to see some positive things like this happening around the program again. Not sure how the voting was that close between Denard and Pryor. I would have understood Kerrigan but not Pryor. Next year he will win the award unanimously after shredding the Big Ten yet again on our way to the first ever Big Ten title.
Actuall would not be our first conference title maybe something like our 43rd
I didn't state that very well. I meant UM wins first ever Big Ten championship game, thus winning the Big Ten for the 43rd time.
Well-deserved, without doubt--GO Denard and GO BLUE!
Congrats Denard! Looking forward to hearing Pryor pout about this.
In any other newspaper system he would dominate the awards.
Three Cheers! HAIL! May this be the first award of many.
But what's even more gratifying is that he would trade in the individual accolades for a championship any day of the week.
What's even more nice is Pryor's obvious jealousy over Denard's achievements.
Pryor would have won it if he was in a spread offense.....lol
Pryor would've won the Gold Football Award, but he chose not to.
Pryor would be melting it down right now so he could sell the silver.
Since the Purdue win. Congrats to our Dilithic QB!
Robinson narrowly beat out Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the voting. Both received three first-place votes from Big Ten coaches (who are not permitted to vote for their own players), but Robinson got two second-place votes to Pryor's one.
I would love to see the voting. But after the 1973 rose bowl vote it's probably better not to see and get everybody worked up with the politics of the thing.
Doesn't say who voted for whom, but here is the breakdown by points:
Denard Robinson: 3, 2 = 8
Terrelle Pryor: 3, 1 = 7
Ryan Kerrigan: 2, 2 = 6
Scott Tolzien: 1, 2 = 4
Dan Persa: 1, 0 = 2
J.J. Watt: 1, 0 = 2
Gabe Carimi: 0, 2 = 2
Kirk Cousins: 0, 1 = 1
Edwin Baker: 0, 1 = 1
Just a guess, but I'll go out on a limb and say that Rodriguez voted for Kerrigan, who absolutely terrorized our backfield.
LeShoure had 400 more rushing yards... and a monster game against NW
The crazy thing is that 5 coaches, not counting RR, didn't vote for Denard at all.
I'm really starting to like those people
Maybe we can convince the Tribune to open a Southeast Michigan branch. Wouldn't be much competition to worry about and the sports page would be a hell of a lot better!
Go Denard, Go Blue!
UM now leads the B10 with 17 Silver Football winners. Second is Ohio St with 15 which makes Denard's tie-avoiding victory all the sweeter.
Congrats Shoelace! Go Blue!
42 Big Ten Titles
11 National Titles
3 Heisman winners
17 Silver Footballs
100% Pure Colombian Awesomeness
BG was a co-recipient last year.
Denard is the 2nd straight Michigan player to win the award.
Congrats! Go Blue!
very interesting- rich rod has produced silver football winners 2 out of 3 years- that's got a look good on the resume- obviously that's a percentage not matched by bo, gary, or lloyd.
Congrats Denard! Can't wait to watch the Gator Bowl and Denard tear it up again. Go Blue!
Lets get Denarded!
Congrats to Shoelace! He deserved it. Now lets parlay this award into a bowl victory and get ready for a big ten title in '11! Go Blue!
looking for this pryor?
Definitely well-deserved! Congrats Denard! This year the Silver Football and the Gator Bowl, next year the Heisman and the NC!!!
Congratulations Denard! Well-deserved. Bring home two more.
Dear Terelle Pryor, Everybody fucking hates your ass. Suck it, bitch. Love, me.
so. Congratulations, Denard Robinson. You have brought a lot of happiness to my daughter and I this year.
Nah who am I kidding, if I had a daughter I would sooo let Denard bring her a lot of happiness.
just likes Michigan and Mr. Shoelaces because I love the team and she like to see him flying around.
And a thumbs up to the Tribune, as well. One of the few post-season awards I have felt the voters have gotten right.
Congrats, buddy... looking forward the bowl game and 2 more great years!
Is worth 1000 words.
