I keep reading over and over again that Denard Robinson is going to be used in the "wildcat."
The "wildcat" is a fancy new name for the single wing, which has been around for decades upon decades. There's nothing new in football (except the A-11 offense, which was quickly extinguished). Everything is recycled.
The single wing offense has some different variations, but ultimately it's an offense in which your quarterback is primarily a runner. Whereas your typical pro-style offense or option offense has a quarterback who runs and hides whenever he doesn't have the ball, the single wing employs that quarterback as a runner and blocker. That forces the defense to account for the QB as a runner and gives the offense an "additional" blocker.
In a typical offense, the RB runs and the QB hides, which leaves 9 guys to block 11.
In the single wing, the QB runs, which leaves 10 guys to block 11.
Robinson will NOT be employed in the wildcat. First of all, he's able to pass the ball. But most importantly, he's THE BACKUP (OR STARTING) QUARTERBACK. If he's in the game, he's running the read option as a quarterback. He's no more in the "wildcat" than Pat White was for four years or than Dennis Dixon or Vince Young or Juice Williams.
Please stop saying Robinson will play in the "wildcat." He will play quarterback in Rich Rodriguez's offense, and Rich Rodriguez's offense is not the single wing.
