that's a more than silly stance. Robinson helped keep Michigan relevant through the horrible down times at Michigan.
as horrible a debacle as Rich Rod's tenure was it forced UM to finally change with the times on several levels.
Michigan was already on the decline and Rich's tenure made it even more obvious when he forced the change in style.

i loved watching Denard do his thing through the good and the bad.
he's gone on to be one of the best players in Michigan history. he won a BCS bowl game and he beat OSU.
