0 Big Ten championships, a 1-2 bowl record, a combined 2-6 record against State and OSU, and reduced to a gimmick RB in his senior season. But, hey, at least he won a lot of September Heismans.
Over-hyped isn't his fault. By all accounts he ended up being a good kid and wasn't an idiot when talking about his opponents. Personally, I didn't mind him all that much.
This country was built by people who worked hard then went home and had just a few too many every night. Then went back to work.
Spike Lee is racist.
He seems like a good guy. Leave it alone.
Dominating Press Conferences Since 2007
It's one thing to rip on thugs like Lewan, it's another to rip on a guy who is injured right now.
I'd be the last person to say Denard is a living legend, but by all accounts he is a good kid, a good representative for the university and probably the last person this board should be taking an unprovoked swipe at.
My OP wasn't about whether or not he's a good kid. My point is that he received more undeserved hype than anyone since Drew Henson.
Oh, and he thinks he could beat Usain Bolt in a 40-yard dash
I get it...haters gone hate....but what about this...
I do not think people outside MSU/OSU circles are going to remember him your way. Could be wrong....actually....just kidding....I am absolutely right.

Usain Bolt's 40 isn't as fast as you think.
A Walverine posting bleacher report links.
Fuck, I can only downvote this once.
Exactly. Great individual player, no team accomplishments.
Walverines patrol this board non-stop. #obsessed
If anything, this thread should be making fun of the coaches who kept denard at QB, put Bellomy as his backup and had the best of the 3 qb's (gardner) learning how to be a WR..
A true fan of UM giving and honest critical look at those decisions has to question whether Hoke and Borges have a clue about what they're doing.
First, we as Spartan fans are over sensitive to this hype. The media does this all the time and we do the sane at times for our athletes. Second, Robinson had a great career and is a terrific player with a shitload of talent.
Robinson seemed like a nice guy and an exciting player. A few small quibbles aside Robinson played hard and usually wasn't too cocky. He was a good representative of college football and the BT. The problem was the media forced him down all of our throats as the second coming. He was a great athlete but a TERRIBLE passer and everyone knew it including many UM people. He was an exciting player but some in the media needed to hype him to no end because he could put up 1000s of yards in September. I'm glad MSU doesn't need to worry about chasing him around anymore.
If Hoke had moved Shoelaces away from the QB position before this season, you scummies would have crucified him.
Right, and I know a week can't go by without the entire country talking about Pat White. The rest of the country will forget about him in 5-10 years, just like Pat White.
So was Pat White.
What? I, for one, wish he had 7 more years of eligibility left. MSU owned him. I just hope his taller, slower counterpart is every bit the QB that DR was.
U sad, bro?
Thank you, Denicos.
Great athlete, seemed like a nice guy.
Hoke needs to replenish their D bag supply with Lewan leaving.
Christ, not this shit again.
You're right. The rest of the country will remember him as much as they do Pat White. We're basically doing U of M a favor by thinking about him at all. Any press is good press, right?
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
adios DETARD...we hardly knew ye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was shocked to see Robinson shake hands after the game. He usually organizes a boycott of hand shaking after a tough loss.
Yep. This "he's a classy guy" nonsense is bull shit.
