"Most of (Robinson's) throws were within five to 10 yards," Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly said on Wednesday afternoon. "The point I'm making is, he's a running back. You've got to hit this kid. Tackle him."

I think we might have Mr. Kelly right where we want him.

they realize Denard Robinson is not our only weapon at QB?  Denard, Devin, and Tate!  What a freaking nightmare if you are DC.  Michigan may have the greatest depth at QB of any team in the country.  All three are exceptional athletes in unique ways.  Provided Tate doesn't take a powder -- please don't  go Tate -- we are going to terrorize a lot of defenses for years to come.

Thanks for the link. It will be interesting to see how the read option does evolve. If its really like the pick and roll then it will be here indefinitely.  The vulnerability - as the guy stated - is that the QB needs to be the top athlete on the field and when he goes down so does the team like White in WV. That's the real drawback. It’s hard to have guys on the sideline ready step in and be the top athlete on the field after the starting QB is injured - which is basically inevitable.
