It was a wonderful weekend for the Michigan Wolverines.
Pretty much every recruit in the country – well, seven in all – verbally committed to play football in Ann Arbor in 2013, which gives them a significant head start over the Big Ten when it comes to the new recruiting season. Head coach/recruiting cyborg Urban Meyer is no doubt aware of this, and he’ll likely sleep 8 hours in the next 6 weeks to close the gap accordingly.
On top of pulling in a recruiting haul, the Michigan basketball squad, with the College GameDay crew in attendance, upset 6th ranked Ohio State on Saturday night. Everything is indeed coming up Hoke, well, except for this one thing.
Denard Robinson was the feature of a GameDay segment, and he was asked to lob footballs from long range in the hoop instead of basketballs. Granted, this looked far from easy, but this is also pretty much the most Denard Robinson throwing showcase ever. Arm Punts (and shots, and even Arm Layups) have no offseason.
If there was a Notre Dame defender in front of the basketball hoop, however, I imagine he probably would have sank at least half of these attempts.
