And there were people who wanted Denard benched 3 games ago. When he wasn't running and trying to Tom Brady it Denard's immense talent was being wasted. A QB with Denard's talent only comes around once in a lifetime; Michigan never has had one like him and most likely never will see the likes of him again. Thank goodness Borges let him run the last 3 games. Tim Tebow won 2 national championships. Why would a guy with much more running talent and a better arm deserved to be benched? He didn't- the coaches just weren't using him properly.

Agree with everyone, that's what good coaching does. Denard adjusted well this year, but not perfect - next year it will all fall together. MgoBlueforTiM.......don't blink your eyes when Denard has the ball.

And many on this board want to see us go back to statue pocket passing QB's? Are you kidding? As I've stated before here, I'd take Denard over any QB in college right now except Andrew Luck. The kid is electric and I am going to miss him when he's gone.

Luck = pocket passer. Why would having someone like him be a bad thing? Just cause UM is going prostyle, doesn't mean were gonna have a navarre on our hands..

We already knew he was good and only getting better...he helped put up 85 pts combined against Nebraska and OSU. That's big time.
