Hoke could play Robinson for single snap on senior day

It hasn’t quite been the senior season Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson would have liked to have, but he could still have the opportunity to see the field this Saturday against Iowa — senior day.

Robinson’s sat out the past two and a half games with a nerve injury in his throwing arm. While it’s not clear if he’ll start against the Hawkeyes this weekend, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke has a plan. Speaking Thursday on a radio show, Hoke said he would consider sending Robinson out on the field for one play if he’s unable to start.

That would be something I would think about,” Hoke said. “The seniors and the guys and the people who are truly Michigan fans, I think they understand the significance he’s had.

“To be honest with you, we’ve got 22 guys who’ve done a tremendous job for Michigan, and have been through some tough times, been through a transition, and they’ve responded, in my opinion, in a very positive manner. It’s really a day about all of them.”

It would be a tremendous gesture. Robinson’s had his ups and downs in Ann Arbor, but he’s always represented his university well. If he can’t start, here’s hoping he’ll get one snap.

    Another example of what a class guy Brady Hoke is, always putting the team ahead of himself. It’s easy to see why his players love him and love playing for him. Way to go, coach!!! Proud of ya!

    Pryor4heisman, I’m assuming you root for that morally sound Ohio state. 10-0 and can only watch as everyone else goes bowling. Kind of makes you wish the vest was honest

    Scumbag because he got a DUI? How about hanging out with drug dealers, getting free tattoos and other free things, and then playing in a BCS bowl game? That sounds worse, and I still wouldn’t call those dudes scumbags.

    Michigan 31 Ohio 27

    Pryor4heisman can u be a bigger troll doosh? It’s the same 3 posts on repeat. Yeah we get it. You think fitz’s punishment was not fair. Do we really want to go over all of Tosu’s punishments? Someone’s mom taking the hit for them? Get a clue bro. Take off your homer glasses and join the rest of us in reality. Or can you just not read well in the dark or your mom’s basement. Do us all a favor and get a job so you don’t have so much time to post the same idiotic stuff over and over. GFY.

    He’s injured? I thought he just finally got benched. I guess Hoke can’t make the tough decisions on the football field, just like he can’t make the tough decisions at the dinner table. “Seconds on peanut butter fudge pie? Why not?!?”
