DETROIT -- Denard Robinson just couldn’t help himself.
Back in his “second home” for an NFL preseason game against the Detroit Lions, the former Michigan quarterback and current Jacksonville Jaguars running back saw a lot of familiar faces, including those with microphones and notebooks.
Those doing the reporting couldn't resist either, they just didn't think he'd say it again.
“As a former Wolverine, how tough was it to see Michigan State win not only the Big Ten but the Rose Bowl?" Robinson was asked following the Jaguars 13-12 loss to the Lions Friday night. "That had to sting a little bit.”
"It did sting," Robinson answered. "But at the end of the day, the Big Ten won the Rose bowl. It was good that they won it, our little brothers won it, and pulled it out for the Big Ten."
Robinson chuckled as soon as the words left his mouth, seemingly taking the conversation lightly but still unable to resist the narrative.
"You know people are going to run with that, right?" Robinson was told.
"I mean, it’s the truth," he said. "I mean, when it was first said (by Mike Hart) it was the truth, and now it holds true."
Robinson was a factor for the Jaguars in multiple ways Friday night. While he has made the transition to running back this season, he also played on special teams and caught one pass on the final play of the game.
Despite one 12-yard carry out of the backfield, it was his play on special teams that caught the most attention, and not in the way one would think. He was consistently the first Jaguar down the field on punt coverage and tackled Lions return man Jeremy Ross in the first quarter.
"If they put me on special teams, whatever they tell me to do, I will go 100 percent," Robinson said. "Anything I do, I do to 100 percent. They put me out there and I’m going out there at 100 percent. I made a tackle and I made a little disruption on a kickoff.
"I think I’m getting the hang of things now (at running back). I still have a lot of things to work on. I feel like I’m gradually getting better and better. I got great coaches and great people around me to help me out. With those guys helping me, I’m being a sponge right now."
Robinson says he plans on being in Ann Arbor one week from today for Michigan's season opener versus Appalachian State.

Anybody else notice how big Denard has gotten.  he has really changed his body to be more beefy like a running back should.  I wish him luck in the NFL, always liked the guy.

Denard has been their best RB this preseason.
 
Jag's RB stats through 3 games 
Jordan Todman - 18 carries 26 yards (1.75 ypc) 
Storm Johnson - 19 carries 46 yards (2.42 ypc) 
Terrance Cobb - 6 carries 13 yards (2.17 ypc) 
Toby Gerhardt - 16 carries 51 yards (3.19 ypc) 
Harvey Unga - 1 carry 5 yards (5.0 ypc)
DRob - 14 carries 82 yards (5.86 ypc) and a TD 
 
Except for Unga, Denard is nearly double the next best guy in ypc....and he is also the only Jags RB to find the end zone this preseason.

^Aye, aye!

Again... being the "best" when you're playing during insurance salesman time of the preseason isn't much to parade about.
