Michigan QB Denard Robinson to be SI cover boy
If you subscribe to Sports Illustrated and reside in the Big Ten footprint, chances are, you’ll see Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson in you mailbox this week. The popular magazine is releasing five regional covers to preview the season, and Robinson is one of five quarterbacks featured. He joins Alabama’s A.J. McCarron, Oklahoma’s Landry Jones, USC’s Matt Barkley and West Virginia’s Geno Smith as cover boys. @SInow tweeted a picture of the covers, and you can see it in this post.
Robinson’s cover features him on the run, with the headline “The Victor?” Robinson and Michigan are both popular topics entering the 2012 season. Robinson is included near the top of many preseason Heisman lists, while the Wolverines are a popular pick to represent the Big Ten in the Rose Bowl.
Michigan kicks off the season Sept. 1 against reigning national champ Alabama at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Here’s what the Wolverines will be wearing for the much-anticipated clash.
