Does Denard "Shoelace" Robinson remind u of anyone in particular? A cannon for an arm and blinding speed is reminding some of a particular player who took Virginia Tech to the National Championship on his back.
The Deerfield Beach, Florida native is starting to wake up the echoes of Michael Vick. To give u an idea of how much damage he is doing, he had 383 yards of total offense in his first start against Connecticut. And to top that, he carried the Michigan offense to victory lane with 258 yards rushing and 244 yards passing.
Robinson is exactly what the doctor ordered for a struggling program. His 4.32 speed makes it difficult for opposing defenses to close on him. And his accuracy in the passing game is great. To this point in his career, he is more accurate than Vick was at this point in his career. And the good thing is, he is very coachable and he is willing to lay it on the line for his team.
This guy may be the next chosen one in football, maybe a darkhorse for the Heisman, but only time will tell. But until then, just keep tuning in to see what he does from Saturday to Saturday and how he carries the Maze in Blue back to prominence and saves Rich Rodriguez's job in the process.
