Denard's TD (Video)
It is great to have that kind of homerun threat in the backfield. I will really get tired of the shoelace story as it will be brought up whenever Denard is in the game.
my buddy and i were saying 'how many times are we gonna have to hear about the shoelaces this year?'. my response was, 'shit, if every time they do, it's after a 50 yard touchdown, i'll pay attention!'
on a side note: this freshman class is going places. Barwis will stay on them, the offense will open up even more (omg), and we're only adding athletes from here on out.
We need an over/under on how many times the broadcast is going to focus on Denard's (untied) shoe laces this season....
Even a better job doing four things
1. Recovering a snapped fumble
2. Two being able to make forward progress after a fumble
3. Finding gaps in the defensive line to break lose
4. Running it in for the TD
WHAT A PLAY!!!!
And did you know he doesn't tie his shoes?
He seems like a nice guy, too. Probably the most talkative of all the QB's on fan day.
Big ups to Odoms for clocking that guy after Shoelace juked the first one.
Thanks. I was searching YouTube for a video of that a little earlier, and the only thing I found in the search is that one of the results for "Denard Robinson" is this video name "Breaking the Sound Barrier"
Like I said when I registered...I'm glad I have this name locked up. Could today have been much better?
We missed that last year. What a play.
that play gives me chillllllllllllls
He should have to fumble every snap to make it fair for the other... oh, wait, nvm!
Denard is fast. Really fast. Really really fast. I'm still muttering to myself that Denard is really fast.
this was an absolute jaw dropper. on his first play, no less.
hopefully he can balance it out a little better, in the future. it seemed like he was intent on running every play. the announcers even mentioned once where a receiver (hemingway?) was wide open and he opted to scramble instead.
maybe it was just not knowing the playbook well enough.
either way, i loved the way RR mixed up tate and denard. they can make each other better-- denard's run seemed to completely unbalance WMU's defense for the rest of the half, and tate exploited that.
I like how they were talking about how he was too talented to redshirt right before he broke off that run.
That was a great run, man he is fast.
He is a special talent, no doubt, IIRC Anthony Carter took a punt return for a TD on his first touch. I know, it was Denard's 2nd touch but first as QB.
Tate was so impressive and Denard so electric they can help keep the pressure off each other. This is going to be fun to watch develop
Even though he's clearly not as well rounded as Tate, I got very excited everytime I saw him under center. If he eventually learns to actually throw sometimes and defenses have to respect that he will be very very dangerous
If he's even, he's leavin'! I had a great view. Two guys had an angle and he just blew them away. I just laughed and lauhed and sang the victors.
Did you notice that the first person to congratulate Denard after that play was Tate. Awsome chest bump!
Barwis, it looks like was there shortly after.
has anyone noticed, this denard guy is pretty fast...
