Now, a few choice highlights from the column.
I've seen quite a few “yeah, but's” from Buckeye fans regarding what Robinson has done to this point, and it's ridiculous. When things are being done weekly that have NEVER been done before, it almost doesn't matter who it's done against. And you can say whatever you want about the Big East defenses that Michigan has played to this point, but other quarterbacks have been playing Big East defenses for years, and almost nobody else has done what this kid has done.
There are definitely valid criticisms of Robinson's game, and believe me, I'm going to get to them. But don't try and diminish what he's done to this point. It diminishes what every other player has done previously. Give him credit, acknowledge his success, and root like heck for your team to stop him.
Nice way to start the column, no? Then he takes a dig at the intelligence of Michigan fans. Really? An ohio state guy wants to go THERE?
In the realm of “water is wet”, let's just all go ahead and agree that Denard Robinson is not going to survive the 28.5 carries per game he is currently averaging. Even the most Maize and Blue of Michigan fans will acknowledge this. (As long as you tell them what “acknowledge” means.)
Anyway, he goes on with some spot-on observations, some obvious hyperbole, and a (un)healthy dose of buckeye bias and smack talk. He ends fairly positively for Michigan, though:
Come November, good teams will be much better equipped to control a lot of what we're seeing now from Michigan's offense. But I also think come November, we'll be seeing a few new things from them as well.
At that point, it's anybody's game. It will still come down to execution, and the Wolverine offense finally seems to have figured some things out.
