that 12 seconds after that picture was taken Sad Keanu killed & ate that defenseless bird!
douche baggery is earned, never given. Congratulations. You've arrived.
Edit: Dammit, moderators. If you're going to delete a fuckstain's post you gotta delete the snarky rebuttals. Otherwise it looks like I'm dogging a legit post.
If so, you can still see caved posters replies, which might have been the issue. I know ZL was on a bit earlier, but I think it's just me otherwise and I haven't deleted any comments or banned anyone tonight.
I just wanna puke out of sadness.
That's true only if you are an MSU man.
No, its love.
Under the Lights my Heart still races
I love Denard as much as the next Michigan fan, but this should be Goodbye Seniors. Just my opinion I guess.
Denard was undoubtedly the face of the program the last few years and he will be missed by all. But I am excited to see where we go from here. All of the seniors played well and we will miss guys like Kovacs, Roh, Demens, etc. All of them made plays that I will remember for years.
No disrespect to the other seniors at all...Denard, I think, has a special spot in Michigan history
No argument from me. Just saying all of the seniors should be recognized, that's all.
there's a Thank You Team 133 post that should have about a hundred more posts in it, with special attention to seniors
This thread makes me so sad.
#16 = Michigan Legend
In the dark ages of Michigan football, Denard, you arose to provide us with hope and a future vision. You showed us that we would not quit, that we would struggle with everything we had, and we would never give up. For that, and for playing your heart and rear end off for the past 4 years, we thank you! You are what we hope and pray for every single Michigan student to be both today and in the future, someone who works hard and always does their best with a smile!
Hope to see your smiling face on Sundays next fall! You will be missed!
I dunno, I hope some of Michigan's future students are linemen and safeties. Also, pre-med types would be nice.
Since some scouts think Denard would make for a good NFL prospect at CB, it's too bad he wasn't one today. Lost this game getting torched for big plays in the secondary. Maybe Denard could have helped us? I am out of answers. I am just reaching at this point. Damn!!!
No, Denard was played exactly as he should have been. For that, he broke the career rushing record for a QB and made plays on offense. Personally, if Norfleet didn't make an appearance at CB in this game, I don't know as if anything would have changed. The secondary got torched and that's that.
Who's cutting onions?
get torched for this, but there's a little part in this staff they would never admit that's happy he's done. He just doesn't "fit" and it's been a struggle for Borges/Hoke to use him successfully.
Not why that fits in this thread. Whatever.
Not going to "torch" you, just want to completely invalidate your point. Denard is the career FBS rushing yardage record holder for a QB.
This staff decided to make and keep him as their starter despite having every opportunity to watch Devin Gardner play, until it was not physically possible for him to play the position.
They liked Denard as a QB that much more, in fact, that they moved Gardner to WR and eventually had him stop practicing QB AT ALL.
Additionally, the decision to run this hodgepog offense had some to do with the personnel available and the desire to win immediately. Was Denard the center of that decision? Absolutely. But he was not the only reason. If they didn't run any of the spread, there would have been several more losses the last 2 years.
Even if they didn't want to have Denard play QB, I can guarantee they would have played him at some position.
He is a top 10 athlete in the entire country, and there isn't a coach in America that would be happy that he is leaving their team. The only coaches happy that Denard is graduating are opponents.
see you at the crossroads...
b-b-b-bone-bone-bone-bone-bone . . .
You will be greatly missed. Hard to imagine Michigan football without you.
................you represented yourself and the University of Michigan with class. Continued success!
Not to be overly-dramatic, but this post captures it perfectly. FUCK I'm going to miss that guy.
What a bittersweet moment; it just kind of hit me that there are many players we won't be seeing again in that jersey (or mutiple horrible jerseys).
Farewell Robinson, Rountree, Kovacs, and company
That will become one of my favorite NFL teams.
Thank you Denard for keeping Michigan football afloat during some very rough years. This program wouldn't be the same without you.
Thanks and Congrats on a great career. Please tie your shoes in the NFL, I promise it will be helpful. Also don't talk to strangers and don't forget your lunch.
Don't go to sleep with your hair wet. ...
Your beautiful dreadlocked hair...
going to miss that kid.
Glad I had a chance to see Denard in person. From his first run against Western to the win over Ohio to the clutch 4th qtr completion against State.
To all the seniors, THANKS!
There is a wall in my house, that has some of the greatest Michigan players on it. Desmond Howard, Charles Woodson, Harry Newman, Tom Harmon, Mike Hart, Tom Brady, Braylon Edwards, A-Train and others.
Denard now has a spot on that wall. Along with Roundtree and his amazing catch against northwestern.
I now have to change my signature being that Roy Roundtree never wore the #1. He did wear #21 which is now more valuable being it has Legend status.
Anyways. Thank you Denard. You'll never be forgotten and when I'm an old fart I'm certain I'll be telling my kids or grandkids stories about some of your games.
around Senior Day, I think you should give TheBigAC's thread a read. Not quite the same since the season is officially done, but the sentiment is perfect and it still relates to emotions like we're feeling and discussing today.
Denard is a fantastic player but he's even a greater Michigan Man because of his character and integrity.
wife got a little teared up when they showed him coming off the sidelines (AGAIN) after the last play.
thanks for everything denard. good luck getting ready for the combine, you represented us well and gave us a reason to believe during some dark times.
So did I. One of my favorite wolverines ever. A great player, but more importantly, a great person.
An irrational part of me was hoping this day would not come, but it has - Denard's final game as a Wolverine is now in the books. It is a shame it couldn't be on a higher note.
Thank you, Denard Robinson, for being one of the most electrifying and galvanizing players ever to don the winged helmet. Without necessarily wanting to be, you became the face of this program, the face of its resurgence and a mentor to those coming into the program. Your on the field feats were spectacular, and your off the field persona showed people everything that was great about being a "Michigan Man". It was an honor to see you play in person here and there for these last four seasons. Good luck and congratulations.
To all the seniors, your dedication to this program and your willingness to stay through change says much about your character and your commitment to this team, and it is all positive at that. Congratulations on your impending (or very recent, depending on the semester) graduations and good luck in all that you do.
is one of the greatest player on and off the field for The University of Michigan. I would like to say Thank You #16 for all the memories. A true Michigan Man.
He literally killed the lil man.
