Rich Rodriguez proud of Denard Robinson's 'phenomenal' Michigan career

..."He's been so dangerous as a football player that everybody probably holds their breath every time he touches the ball," Rodriguez said Tuesday. "You have to think he's been one of the most exciting players in the history of that program."

Rodriguez said it was essentially love at first sight with Robinson when his staff went to see him in person at Deerfield Beach High in south Florida.

"We had a pretty good idea, but I don't think you ever know for sure until you get him," Rodriguez said. "I remember we really liked his film and his high school coach raved about him. But then when our coaches went down to watch him practice, I remember them calling me and saying, 'This guy's got it.' I said, 'What do you mean?' They said, 'He can throw, he can run.'

"He has kind of an infectious personality, he has the leadership, he has all those other qualities that sometimes you have to see in person to recognize. I remember when (the coaches) called, they said, 'This is going to be a guy we think we can build an offense around,' and certainly he's had a great career."...

Taylor Martinez isn't Joe Montana or anything, but he's definitely a better passer than Denard. Denard isn't even the leading QB rusher this year. In the whole scheme of things, he'll be forgotten soon after this season is over. A great offensive threat at times? Sure. Great QB? Hell no. A gimmick.

I don't recall anyone ever saying Taylor Martinez is a good passer, but he is the most efficient passer among all the Big Ten starting QBs this year with a 147.2 pass efficiency rating. In fact, only Kane Colter has a higher pass completion percentage but his overall pass efficiency rating is only 126.9.

To be honest, I'm pleasantly surprised to see how well he does stack up against the rest of the conference as far as passing goes. Keep in mind that this year is first time since his sophomore year in high school that he has had the same offensive coordinator and position coach to work with. With Wisconsin and Ohio State dropping off the schedule next year to be replaced by Illinois and Purdue, Martinez could have a huge senior year!
