Denard Robinson's Legacy: From An Ohio State Buckeye Perspective

You are all decked out with your new Ohio State Jacket and hat. Then a Michigan fan walks by with that big cocky smile, boasting about Michigan’s win in “The Game” last year. You think about how on earth this person could be fooled into being a Michigan fan. So you start to think of things to tell him, just to give him a friendly reminder of why your precious Buckeyes should be the ones with the cocky attitudes. From the perspective of a biased Ohio State fan, Denard Robinson would be considered worse than Braxton Miller. (B. Miller: 56.8% Completion, 14 TD Passing 6 INT; 1214 yards rushing with 13 TDs. D. Robinson: 53.6% Completion, 9 TD Passing 9 INT; 1044 yards rushing with 6 TDs this season.) You tell the Michigan fan this and he has a lot to say back to you.

He says that even though Denard Robinson hasn’t lived up to his Heisman potential this year, he has made a great impact at Michigan. He retaliates, “Miller can’t throw the ball!”

You look at him with curiousity on why he would think such a thing. You try to come up with a comeback. “Oh yah? Well….. umm… Denard Robinson sucks!” Then it hits you. He doesn’t suck.

Ohio State Buckeyes News: Why This Season Matters Despite No Bowl Game
Many people feel that for the Buckeyes, this season means nothing. They say that there will be no bowl game, no league championship. They say that it will be nice to win, but what's the point? Yet what they don't realize is that they are absolutely wrong. 1.) The Buckeyes are currently 10-0 under Coach Meyer, and are looking very impressive. However, they will face a threat to their perfect season on November 24th when they square off against the Michigan Wolverines at the Horseshoe. The great thing about this is that there will be a number of optimistic recruits and Buckeye targets at the game. If Ohio State can pull off a victory against UM, they can potentially land quite a few recruits. 2.) There are always the polls. If the Buckeyes can stay perfect, they are looking at a high rank in the polls. Even the BCS, which has excluded Ohio State for a while now due to their NCAA sanctions concerning the tattoo scandal. 3.) People forget that the Buckeyes can still win their division title this year, even if they cannot play in the league championship and possibly a bowl game.
