08:18 AM ET 03.22 | All eyes might be on Denard Robinson for a while this spring. He might be the most-watched Wolverine at practice as he adapts from the spread-option offense under former coach Rich Rodriguez to new coach Brady Hoke's pro-style. "He loves to play the game and is hungry to play the game," Hoke said last week. "There's some things at that position, because of the offense, that he's going to have to get comfortable in, but it's the same offense he ran in high school, so he feels good about that part of it, too." The first video clips on mgoblue.com of Robinson and fellow quarterback Devin Gardner showed them throwing the ball downfield, as well as handing off.

Will Robinson work out in the new scheme?

What choice does he have? I think he will but his numbers will be down from the stratospheric levels they were under DickRod.

spread-option offense. He should be fine. As long as he learns to find receivers before deciding to take off to run

FJJ, love the new avi, but help me what did Rome do to deserve the tag?

he was bashing Corey Joseph on the show yesterday providing advice on what he should have done during the timeout/5 second debacle. Like he knows. but I do like what he said about the aggies.

Funny there is little discussion about the call locally, at the office etc. Even the local ESPN radio station had trouble getting fan feedback on this topic last night. It seems the national media is making a bigger deal about it than the actual fans.

The Notre Dame defense will end Robinson's season early on Sep 10th, so it doesn't matter if he can adapt or not.
Where did little man Tate finally end up? i missed it.

He might be the most-watched Wolverine at practice...I'm guessing somebody is also watching what he does with his Gator Bowl swag
