Denard Robinson is not the choice to represent the 16 days remaining before kickoff of ]V[ichigan football 2012 because he wears the #16 on his jersey. That is purely coincidence.
You are reading once again about him in this countdown because of his performance last year. Specifically because in 2011, Wolverine quarterback Denard Robinson set the ]V[ichigan record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 16 scores. That mark stands as the 9th best season total ever in the Wolverine record books right behind Anthony Thomas. When you add to that the 20 passing touchdowns Robinson completed in 2011 the totals show he accounted for 216 of the Wolverines 433 points scored.
Robinson’s ability to create and his capability to break-out on any play and take the ball into the end zone is unmatched by anyone in college football that takes snaps from center.
His ability to almost single handedly change the outcome of a game in one play is his greatest attribute.
When Denard Robinson has the ball, it really is the greatest show on turf!
And quite simply, if Brady Hoke and his Wolverines are going to do anything special in the 2012 season, Denard Robinson must lead them by any means necessary.
In 16 days the show goes on…
