Desmond Howard and Denard Robinson Are Just Fine, Thank You

Ever since Desmond Howard was quoted as saying:

"I'll give you a perfect example: Michigan fires coach Rich Rodriguez. All the noise in Ann Arbor is, 'Is Denard Robinson going to stay or leave?' I'm like, 'Hey, if the kid wants to go, don't let the door hit you on the way out.' You looked fantastic for five games against nobody. That's what you did. I'm not going to deny his talents, but you ain't won nothing in Ann Arbor, son! Not so much we need to worry about if you're going to be here next year or not."

There's been a minor undercurrent of, "OMG CONTROVZE!" emanating from the bowels of internet trolldom. What's lost in the above quote is that Desmond was talking about, and anyone at the event will tell you this, was that no one player is ever being bigger than the team itself. Desmond was talking about it in the context of how recruits in this day and age seem to have a sense of entitlement and that entitlement stems from the constant stream of information from the fans directly to the players that builds them up into something they might not otherwise become. Denard's situation was used as an example of how these things occur, not that it was the case.

So, just in case you were worried about any program crippling infighting or nonsense like that, Desmond posted the following message on Twitter:
