A Man for His Time and Place

Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and placeHe fits right in there. And that's Denard.

It has been a fun 4 years with Denard. I was on hand to witness his first touch of the football that went BOOM!

During the 2009 season it seemed like there was no way you would ever sling the ball at Michigan on a every down basis. 2010 came and UCONN visited the Big House and the rumors were proven true from practice reports... Denard Robinson was the man for his time and place. Deanrd had defenses kneeling before him week after week and he was kneeling on them. Its pretty scary to think what his stats would have looked like under RR but this is football and changes were made.

The changes kept Robinson from ever putting up Heisman numbers and asked him to make throws he can't always make but he did it all for Michigan and his team. Many players who had the success that Denard did in 2010 would have jet for the Oregon's of the world. He didn't since Michigan was always first to him.

Its a true sadness that the smile of the program for the last 4 years may not get to lead Michigan to victory on Saturday. The nerve injury in his elbow could rob him of that moment and the Pat White rushing record. I don't want to get into that because then I will cry all over my keyboard.

I can't think of to many players who have had this kind of impact on Michigan football. He is a true special talent and seeing him hit the banner one last time will have me fighting tears because I am happy for him and because I am selfish and don't want this to end. Thanks Denard for all the memories and I had such a great time making Deanrd MS Paints. Here is what Denard inspired in MS Paint form over the years. Enjoy.

The first Deanrd MS Paint. Since he can run at a speed of 85 mph it was only a matter of time before he went back to 2001 to make things right.

Denard hitting the banner. He is so fast he is a blur of course.

Maybe the best MM Denard MS Paint. This one was easy since these two(sonic and Denard) were meant for each other.

Yeah this one was out there. But Roundtree's and Denard's face alone made it worth the work.

Of course there was a sequel....

This was always a fav of mine and no one caught on that the Denards Destination was the 2009 Iowa game where he will replace himself and he won't throw the last INT and we end up winning.

This one was dumb but hey.. The Hokie farts and Kirk cries so it can't be that bad..

No doubt that this one is taking a shot at Denard but frustration sets in and you make stuff but the post ended with this...
So yeah... Best birds I ever drew had dreads.

Pretty much sums of the Zook fest of 2010.

Denard you are the man of your time and place. Thank you.
