With Rich Rod gone what's next for Denard Robinson

With today's news that Michigan has decided to relieve Rich Rodriguez of his head coaching duties, ESPN's Adam Rittenberg hits the nail right on the head when he says:

No Michigan player is impacted more than Rodriguez's firing than [Denard] Robinson

With that in mind we examine a few options that might be a better fit for Shoelaces, should he decide to move on.

5. Washington Huskies-Could bring the athletic element to quarterback that the Huskies have enjoyed with Jake Locker, plus could see a boost in his development at quarterback under Steve Sarkisian.

4. LSU Tigers-In their losses this season LSU was done in by inconsistent play at quarterback, Robinson's ability to extend plays and freelance would fit in nicely with Les Miles mad hatter philosophy.

3. Nebraska Cornhuskers-Nebraska's offensive success this season can be mostly attributed to the athleticism of Taylor Martinez, Robinson would fit in nicely where he had the option to run first.

2. Oregon Ducks-The Ducks philosophy seems to be, put the best athletes all over the field and see if you can catch us, Robinson would bring the same element to the quarterback position that the Ducks have enjoyed this season with Darron Thomas and his predecessor Jeremiah Masoli.

1. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets-Would be a match made in heaven, Robinson would bring the same athletic element to the triple option attack that Josh Nesbitt has, with one exception, he is a better thrower.


  1. He would be a beast at GT, Neb or Oregon's offense. LSU is set at QB after picking up Zack Mettenburger from the Juco ranks. (remember i told you, when hes LSU's starter in the next year or two)

  2. If he transferred to Nebraska, he would only be eligible for one year, due to forfeiting a year for transferring with in conference, plus a year of sitting out. At that point, he would be a senior with a two year starting junior QB in Martinez. Not a chance in hell of him going to Nebraska if he decides to transfer.

  3. I heard Target is hiring

  4. Who says he's even going to leave? Just because a coach gets canned doesn't mean all the players transfer. Jumping the gun a bit here, IMO.
