    Just wondering if the kid is part of the issue and calling his own number?? Although I can't imagine Rich Rod is happy about, but if 3 out 4 plays are positive he will not say anything and will ride it out until it bites him in the rear...

    The Nationwide Wolverine Fans are ecstatic and put his firing on hold for awwhile...check out the polls they are ranked anywhere from 22nd to 16th.

    I agree on the player risk thing. But football is dog eat dog.
    RRod is giving a kid the power to be a star. Can the kid succeed ?

    Michigan shoulds win their next three, against Massachusetts, Bowling Green, and Indiana. Against those three, the coach should mandate no more than 12 rushes per game...Or he puts in Forcier.

    What if Robinson was a running back? Would you still limit him to 12 rushes per game?

    No, because I wouldn't be counting on him to throw 25 passes per game.

    For the next three games we should...
    Maybe have him as RB with Forcier passing. Then we let him run 25 times per game. And Forcier gets needed work for when Robinson gets injured later on.

    except Forcier isn't even the backup it seems he's dropped to number 3, what little I have picked up on the freshmen is that he's a better runner then Forcier and a better passer then our heisman winner :P. Also sounds like Forcier hasn't been much of a teamate since the end of last season... it might all be spin now, but if the rumors that he wasn't around with the team for offseason stuff is true the drop to number 3 makes sence.

    Yeah, we've got a good thing here with Robinson. Let's not play him to his strengths and get less production out of him so that we can continue to get less production out of him for the whole year. :pound:


    If I owned a Ferrari I would always keep it in first gear when I drive it because I don't want it to get damaged in a higher gear.

    That's fine...Then play the other guy the next three weeks so that he gets exposure and let Robinson run the ball as a RB. I'm not sold on either Forcier or the other guy as a starter. I just want to make sure that Robinson has a chance to finish the season.

    I assume that if you owned a horse, you would rent it out for three 6 hour shifts per day so that you could maximumize its potential.

    Why not four 6 hour shifts?

    No, but if I was racing him in the Kentucky Derby, we wouldn't be trotting to save him for future races.

    Agreed, If I was playing OSU at the end of the year, then play him. Just don't play him that way against Bowling Green...with many games left in the season...

    It's Bowling Green...not the Kentucky Derby of Football...:)

    Gotta start D-Rob during these scrub games and let him do his thang. If he DOES his thang, there will be plenty of time for him to rest when his team is up by 28 in the 2nd half.

    If UofM wants to contend for a BCS 'Ship, these next three games have to be impressive blow-outs so they can climb the rankings ladder.

    ...also.

    Shutting D-Rob down would be whack for recruiting. Why would "Johnny Blue-Chip" wanna come to a team that doesn't let him play because they fear that he's gonna roll an ankle or something.

    Let the kid play.
    Let the kid rack up stats.
    Let the kid help the team get wins.
    Let the kid win the Heisman.

    This is also a good plan. Run up the score and then rest him.

    Good points..........

    I wouldn't keep D-Rob in first gear.

    Players, Coaches and Trainers say it all of the time. When guys start holding back, they tend to get hurt.

    Dude needs to go full-on, full-speed until each game is out of reach.
    THEN he can rest.

    I agree. Heisman's are rarely won when the player doesn't get to beat up a few weak teams.
