Pat Caputo: Why Denard Robinson Can Be Next Year’s Robert Griffin III

I voted for Robert Griffin III for the Heisman Trophy, who won the award, this year, and while he is a different player than Denard Robinson, Michigan’s quarterback, I do see parallels.

Robinson figures to go into next season as a leading candidate for the Heisman.
