Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson pleaded guilty to driving with a suspended license but still remains eligible to play in U-M’s inevitable Outback Bowl loss to South Carolina. He paid a fine and faces no additional punishment from the university. The Wolverines suspended three players from this game earlier this week including their punter, who got the Big Ten punter of the year award, and starting corner J.T. Floyd. I’ve joked about Denard being a single  threat QB for quite some time; long before he got hurt and was essentially converted to a running back/all purpose back receiver type player. That’s because even when he was healthy I didn’t think he could throw and he was an overrated player. And I got sick of him being referred to as a “dual threat.” It’ll be interesting to see how/where Robinson fits in at the NFL level. Maybe a punt returner? Paul M.

Michigan to Wear Special Unis/Helmets for the Outback Bowl
