Myth 1: The Michigan Wolverines can be beaten by keeping Denard Robinson in the pocket
The usual weakness in athletic quarterbacks like Robinson is that they are often run-first, pass-second players. This limitation means a defense can gain an advantage by forcing that player to stay in the pocket and pass.
That weakness is nowhere to be found in Robinson or in this Michigan offense. Al Borges, the Wolverines' first-year offensive coordinator, has installed a truly multidimensional passing scheme that takes advantage both of Robinson's physical talents and his prior experience in running a drop-back passing system.
