Latest Denard Robinson News

#BTNLive crew on Michigan State's Denard tweets

The Michigan-Michigan State rivalry is a heated one, to be certain, and the last thing it needed was fuel added to the fire. The rivalry may have been taken to another level Saturday night. You see, during Michigan’s 41-14 season-opening loss to reigning national champ Alabama, Michigan State players went to Twitter and tweeted critical comments about Denard Robinson and the Wolverines. Watch our #BTNLive crew discuss the issue now and see some of the tweets in this post. [Related: Tom Dienhart ranks his top 3 Big Ten Heisman candidates] Listen to Tuesday’s entire #BTNLive episode: And here are the

Miller, Martinez enter Big Ten Player Rankings

With Week 1 behind us, it’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. Again, I’m doing these a little different this year. Whereas I used to rank the top 10 players – a practice that was tough due to all the talent on both sides of the ball – I’ll rank the top six offensive and defensive players each week. Why six of both? Because it opens up the field, plus there are six teams in each division. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa. OFFENSE 1. Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin

Another sneak peek at "The Journey"

“The Journey” 2012″ debuts Wednesday, Oct. 3. Go ahead and make a note of that in your calendar because the weekly documentary-style show is going to be must-see TV for any Big Ten football fan. In the days and weeks leading up to the debut, the producers are rolling out these short but cool videos for each Big Ten school. So far we’ve covered Minnesota, Northwestern, Indiana and Purdue. Today we introduce the Michigan version here in this post. Follow “The Journey’ on Twitter. Go behind the scenes with show producers running @BTNJourney for extra updates, photos, videos and more

Michigan QB Denard Robinson signs BTN tour bus

The final stop on our annual summer football tour took us to Ann Arbor, Mich., where our team watched Michigan practice. It was a fun couple of weeks on the road, and the BTN tour bus will return to Chicago better than it left it. And it has this year’s tradition of having every player represented on the bus autograph his likeness to thank. Michigan’s representative was Denard Robinson, of course. See a picture of Robinson autographing our bus in this post. [BTN.com: BTN experts’ tweets from Michigan practice] Check out similar shots of Michigan State’s William Gholston, Ohio State’s

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

Denard Robinson To Big Ten Crowd: It's About Choices

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson spoke to Friday’s Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon crowd, and you can watch his speech right here in this post. People attending the luncheon quickly turned to Twitter and applauded Robinson’s performance. Among his popular remarks, Robinson said, “My motto is: It’s my goal to make somebody’s day every day.” Robinson also said, “Trust me, I’m not perfect. Just ask Coach Hoke. I drive you crazy way too often, right Coach?” Robinson also drew applause when he said, “Character is who you are when no one else is watching. It’s easy when you know the camera is

Preseason Big Ten Player Rankings: Ball, Short on top

Big Ten media days kick off Thursday in Chicago, so I thought I’d release my preseason Big Ten player rankings. I’m going to do these a little different this year. In previous years, I’d rank the top 10 players, which often became a tough task with all the talent on both sides of the ball. To account for both sides, I’ll rank the top six offensive and defensive players each week. Why six? Well, because there are six teams in each division. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice-versa. OFFENSE 1. Montee Ball,

Ball, Robinson land on Phil Steele's Heisman list

The Summer of Steele continued Wednesday, as well-respected prognosticator Phil Steele posted his favorites to win the Heisman Trophy. Few things are more meaningless and yet hugely popular than preseason Heisman hopefuls — or preseason polls, for that matter — so don’t treat this as science. Steele’s list of the top 10 candidates, to no surprise, includes Montee Ball and Denard Robinson. See what Steele says about the two Big Ten stars in this post. [PhilSteele.com: Who will win this year’s Heisman?] 6. Montee Ball – “Ball was a Heisman finalist in ‘11 and tied Barry Sanders’ single season TD

Denard Robinson hangs with MLB star David Wright

What happens when one of the best college football players and one of the best MLB players meet in front of cameras? They swap jerseys and create a photo op, of course. Michigan QB Denard Robinson and New York Mets 3B David Wright donned each other’s jersey in the Mets clubhouse prior to Friday night’s game vs. the Yankees. Robinson, it would seem, was in New York because Mets owner Fred Wilpon is a Michigan graduate (1958) and a big-time Wolverine fan. See the @Mets picture of Robinson and Wright in this post. This isn’t the first time Wright has

Football Report: Watch our Robinson interview

Tuesday night on Big Ten Football Report, Rick Pizzo, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith looked in on Michigan State’s pro day, discussed the difficulty of putting together a good non-conference schedule and broke down the conference’s wide receivers. Also, Griffith sat down with Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson. Watch the full interview now. Speaking of Robinson, the Wolverines are sitting pretty in our 2012 Big Ten Football Uniform Bracket. And don’t forget about BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart’s great Q&A with MarQueis Gray.
