Michigan Still Needs Robinson at Quarterback

Gregory Shamus

I wrote a column over at the Freep today about Devin Gardner's performance and how much Michigan still needs Robinson at quarterback.

So far this hasn't been a popular opinion.

People seem to want to jump squarely on the "Devin for Quarterback" hype train without considering that it might not be in Michigan's best interest to scrap its offense to this point and go with a quarterback that had one good game against a bad team.

Robinson isn't the best passer in the country, but he is far from the worst. On top of that, the sample size from Gardner is too small to be anything near conclusive.

At the end of the day you have to remember that under Brady Hoke Denard Robinson has a record of 16-5, a BCS bowl win, wins over MSU, OSU, and Notre Dame, and has largely shouldered the entire offensive burden himself while doing it all.

Devin Gardner's time is next year. For now, let's all enjoy just what we have in Denard Robinson since he is the best chance this team has of finishing the season without a loss and winning a bowl game.
