Prodded by dreamy backup signal-caller Devin Gardner, dynamic University of Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson claimed Sunday that he could trump legendary Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt in a 40-yard dash. The 6-foot, 197 pound Robinson, who established the single-season Division … Continue reading →

SPEED VS. SPEED
Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson claims that he could beat Olympian Usain Bolt in the 40-yard dash.
Welcome to part 1 of our 3 part Michigan Football season preview. In this edition, I will focus on the offense which of course starts. Last year, season one under Brady Hoke and Offensive Coordinator Al Borges, Michigan ranked 13th nationally and 2nd in the Big Ten in rushing offense (221.8). They ranked 26th nationally and 2nd in the conference in scoring offense (33.3).
Usain Bolt has proven time and again that he's the "fastest man alive." But is the Jamaican sprinter fast enough to compete with the world's fastest online delivery service? After taking home a few more gold medals in London this month, just adding to his collection, Bolt was offered the opportunity of a lifetime -- some may say -- according to Black Sports Online...
Last night it was the Michigan Wolverines being put under the 2nd annual B1G Countdown to Kickoff microscope. Helping us to break down the Maize 'N Blue was Brad Muckenthaler of Maize 'N Blue Nation.

What young players could contribute in 2012?
Everyone wants a piece of Usain Bolt these days. In what is becoming some sort of hip trend, another non-sprinter is confident he could go step-for-step with Bolt in the 40-yard dash. This time around, it's Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson. "I've watched [Bolt] run, and I'm pretty sure I can beat him in a 40-yard dash," Robinson said at Michigan's media...
Another day, another football player who thinks he is faster than Usain Bolt. With the Olympics having just ended, Bolt’s speed has been a popular topic of discussion among athletes in non-Olympic sports. Everyone wants to be the fastest guy on the team. But being faster than the fastest man in the world would give you serious bragging rights. Even if it’s only in the 40-yard...
Now that the Olympics are over, there's one very fast young man looking at one very long layoff before resurfacing in Rio in four years.
Hey, Usain Bolt! You want to play in the NFL?
Bob Hayes, gold medal winner in the 100 meters at the 1964 Tokyo Games and dubbed world's fastest human, did it. So did Renaldo Nehemiah, world record-holder in the 110-meter hurdles who missed...

Jamaican track freak Usain Bolt is unquestionably the fastest man on earth, right? He’s won back-to-back Olympic gold medals in both the 100M and 200M sprints and owns the world records for both events.
But Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson doesn’t care about Olympic golds or records...
Throughout the 16 days of the London Olympics, roughly 150 million tweets were sent. That is an astronomical number for slightly over a two-week stretch. In fact, so many users were on Twitter at the start of the Olympics that the network even crashed for a short period. No single person was the topic of discussion in more of those 150 million tweets than Usain Bolt.
IOC President Jacques Rogge still can't figure out what to call Usain Bolt, so here's hoping he gets another Olympics to sort it out. There's just something about his latest effort -''active performance legend'' - that doesn't rise to a gold medal level.
There's a lot of things we can call the London Olympics, and still not run out of superlatives...
It's time. Football is near. Let's dive in. First up is our 2012 preview of the Michigan offense.

At the end of the day (a quite English saying that sounds even better with the proper accent) the biggest stage in world sports got smaller.
