Irish defense gets one last chance to stop Denard Robinson

Denard Robinson has killed Notre Dame. Smashed their hearts and stomped on their souls. This is undeniable. The man called Shoelace is Enemy No. 1 in South Bend this weekend. He’s put to sleep more echoes and silenced more thunder than any opponent in the modern era of Irish football.

The Wolverines enter South Bend attempting to win their fourth straight over the Irish. It’s Michigan’s longest winning streak against Notre Dame since 1908, making Robinson literally the villain of the century in a rivalry that might be described as one filled with mutual admiration, but really one built on hatred, jealousy, and a mutual dislike between Midwestern neighbors. This might not be the Hatfields and McCoys, but for two schools build on traditional pomp and circumstance, it’s not that far off.

As Notre Dame and Michigan prepare to play for the 40th time, only Robinson stands in the way of the Irish’s best start in a decade, and an inside track to a BCS bowl that hasn’t been in the Irish’s crosshairs since 2006. Yet to get by Michigan, they’ll need to slow down Robinson, something Notre Dame hasn’t come close to doing since he took over as the Wolverine’s starting quarterback.

There’s no way to understate Robinson’s impact on the Wolverines. He is their engine. And while his (not quite) six-foot, 197-pound frame won’t intimidate, his 600 horse-power, V12 has blown away Notre Dame the past two seasons, putting up statistics that defy logic.

In 2010, Robinson put up 502 yards of offense himself in the Wolverines’ 28-24 victory, including the game-winning touchdown run with 27 seconds left. He accounted for 94.4% of the Michigan offense, with the next leading rusher chipping in 17 yards on seven carries. If 2010 was painful for Irish fans, 2011 was pure evil. Playing the role of Verbal Kint for three quarters (even with a 43 yard touchdown pass in the second quarter), Robinson turned into Keyser Soze in the games final fifteen minutes, storming Michigan back with 28 fourth quarter points. Robinson threw for 338 yards on just 11 completions, a back-breaking 30.7 yards a catch. Sure he only ran for a modest 108 yards, but the rest of the team ran for six yards on ten carries. Robinson’s domination is put into perspective when you consider he accounted for 98.7% of the Wolverines offense.

Matt Hinton, over at his Sunday Morning QB blog, wrote about Robinson’s uncanny ability to play at his best in one of college football’s biggest rivalries.

Denard Robinson against Notre Dame is the ur-Denard from which all other versions of Denard follow and against whom they are all compared. With the possible exception of the Denard who played a nearly perfect game in the process of snapping a seven-year losing streak against Ohio State last November, the others almost always come up short. Denard against Notre Dame is the original formula. The idol to which thousands of No. 16 jerseys pay homage every weekend, hoping for a mere glimpse of what they got in South Bend in 2010, and under the newly installed lights in Michigan Stadium in 2011 – if not necessarily the best version of Denard, as they saw in the former case, then at least the version who abruptly forgot everything he’d ever been coached in the latter and proceeded to turn the fourth quarter into his own personal PlayStation at the Irish’s expense. No player in college football in the last decade has inflicted as much emotional damage on a single rival.

That’s essentially a matter of fact: It can be proven statistically, in two of the most prolific box scores in either school’s history. It can be proven narratively, in two late, improbable comebacks in the dying seconds, the details of which produce the kind of copy that practically writes itself. It can probably be proven financially, in terms of jersey and ticket sales and the record sums in the swear jars in Catholic kitchens. Since his second start at Notre Dame in 2010, that’s the Denard fans have paid to see, and opposing coaches have desperately hoped they don’t.

It’s also the Denard that Notre Dame’s defense is convinced it can beat. They were given a blueprint by Alabama, who executed a plan that turned Robinson into a mere mortal. Do the Irish have the defense that the Crimson Tide does? Certainly not. But with Kapron Lewis-Moore, Louis Nix, and Stephon Tuitt, they have a front three that should dominate the line of scrimmage. With edge rushers Prince Shembo and Ishaq Williams, they’ve got athletes that can crash off the edge and suffocate the pocket. And with Manti Te’o in the middle, they have a warrior that has one last enemy to cross off his list.

Much will be made about the inexperience of the back-end of the Notre Dame defense. It will face its stiffest test when Robinson scrambles and creates time, looking much like the running threat but capable (and eager) to throw deep and force somebody to make a play. Last year, those plays were made by Wolverines. But this game shouldn’t come down to defensive backs KeiVarae Russell and Matthias Farley.

Regardless of their preseason ranking, Michigan won’t have the better football team on Saturday night. They are struggling on both the offensive and defensive line, working in freshmen at linebacker, and looking for an identity. But as long as they have Robinson, they have a chance.

But after two superhuman efforts by Robinson, Notre Dame’s defense needs to put an end to Michigan’s dominance. Powered by a home crowd desperate to make an impact after watching the Big House will the Wolverines back from the dead, the scene is already set.

Now it’s up to the Irish to stop Robinson before he completes his very own superhero trilogy.

    The goal: As Denard returns to consciousness following Tuitt’s crushing hit and then tries to start breathing again as Irish Chocolate gets off of his chest, he wistfully daydreams of the day when he only had to play Alabama.

  2. vegasmark - Sep 21, 2012 at 4:09 PM

    GO IRISH!!! BEAT scUM!!!
    I’m going to go throw up now….

  3. seadomer - Sep 21, 2012 at 4:29 PM

    Certain USC QB has not beaten Stanford.

    I expect Effiert and Te’o will be wanting to leave their own ND legacy.

    They will rally their respective lines and we will see if all our frustration, anguish and damages to our TV remotes, lamps and old printers can be relieved.

      Man….bounced a remote off of a pillow and shattered a really nice picture of the Golden Gate bridge. I need to send fat boy a bill for that one! (I couldn’t do that “trick shot” again if I tried 100 times)

  4. irish4006 - Sep 21, 2012 at 4:39 PM

    Nice article, Keith! I want to point a finger at something if I may – you mentioned BCS contention or BCS inside track in two consecutive pieces. Since you live and breath ND football, you probably got carried away in all the hype. Please come back down to earth. So far, we have only beaten a very good (although a tad overrated) MSU team; and that’s all we have done. The season is young, we have the opportunity to do a number of great things as the season progresses, let’s just focus on doing that.

    I, personally, loved the MSU performance but a lot of us (people who closely follow ND football, not the Dennis Dodd types) sort of expected for the game to be close and to end in a possible ND win. I do believe that we are, as a team, better than the UM team and should win tomorrow night as well. I do, however, fail to see the point of bringing up BCS every time we win a game. It is embarrassing at best and insulting at worst. Where we end up after the season, the season itself will dictate…

    • NotreDan - Sep 21, 2012 at 5:50 PM

      4006; I agree with you. I also think what KA is saying is being echoed across the college football world. Let us be mindful, that we cannot bitch about comments that call us “not relevant” and also bitch about comments that say we are

      • irish4006 - Sep 21, 2012 at 6:45 PM

        We should ignore both, in my humble opinion. We care about the team and want them to succeed. We bitch and moan when we are not winning and ask for new coach, new administration, new facilities and all sorts of things. That is our “right” (or so we think).

        Don’t get me wrong, I want the team to win every single game we play and was thought to be on drugs (by some) when I said that we matched up pretty evenly with the likes of MSU, UM and Stanford before the season; now these same people are coming out with BCS chants (this is not directed as Keith, BTW). It annoys me to no end as a fan/alum and I kind of get it when the rest of college football world hates us and calls us names the moment we are not winning.

        Whoever we play, wherever we play; we should have an expectation to compete and possibly win. We are Notre Dame. I just hate it when we are beyond ourselves every time we beat a ranked opponent and then lay an egg the next Saturday. We are not ULM, we should get used to winning and let our play on the field do the talking. To hell with the college football pundits and the “not relevant” chatter.

    • Keith Arnold - Sep 21, 2012 at 7:55 PM

      @Irish4006 — Fair points and thanks for laying them out in a well reasoned fashion. Here are the facts as I see them. Not many people expected ND to get through this part of the schedule unscathed.

      Most (I will say not me) predicted a loss to MSU. Most predicted a loss to Michigan. (Biting tongue on this, but again feel confident.) Then you get yourself into a situation where ND has 3 legit games it could call coin-flips: Oklahoma, Stanford, USC.

      I’m not convinced any of those three are “elite” teams. (Will DVR Oklahoma tomorrow night to see first hand.) Also not sure how many true elite teams there are in the country right now.

      If ND handles their business tomorrow, they look on track for a two loss season if they can pull one win out of those three coin-toss games. I don’t think that’s unreasonable and I don’t see a world where a two loss ND is kept out of the BCS, especially with that schedule.

      Is it too early? Yes. But it’s certainly not too early to talk about the importance of this game, if only from the perspective that this game is a launch point for the trajectory for the rest of the season.

      • irish4006 - Sep 21, 2012 at 11:25 PM

        Very true and as always, I respect your opinion. USC did look a little vulnerable (but the offense still scares me), OK is a team that no one is sure about, Stanford I still think is a winable game; I don’t disagree a bit with your assessment. But, talking about BCS or building up expectation is something I feel is a little too premature for this season, or any season. If we play our best game every game and win our games, we will be in those bowls because we are ND; not Boise State (no disrespect, just an example of a school that me need to lobby for the BCS; not us).

        Anyway, I am very worried about the game tomorrow; I have seen the movie too many times where we beat a good team one week and come out flat the next. But being in Vegas right now and being a true fan, I just came back up to the hotel room after putting some money on ND to cover the spread. It has increased to 6 pts in the last 24 hours; but we should cover it and then add 10 more. Right guys, right?

      • ndfaithful - Sep 22, 2012 at 1:22 PM

        Right on KA,

        Robinson does stand, as you say, between the Irish and the inside track to a BCS bowl game. It’s early, sure, but ‘we’ fans don’t actually play the games. I hope the players stay focused on each snap, each series, quarter, game… Us fans can think BCS all day long. It won’t really change the outcome.

        With the way things are in CFB today, each week is a BCS elimination test. And you always have to beat the best to be the best. We all feel it so close… a win against UM gives us a perfect September and something to build on during a bye-week.

        On another note, why should we not say “BCS” when we get some good things going, however small and however early. Isn’t that what the goal is anyway? If we hush ourselves and silence ourselves because of what the rest of CFB says, then we’ve already lost the joy and fun of the winning streak. I never talk trash to other team’s fans and never gloat. I simply say “they have to play the games”. As you pointed out, Michigan now stands between us and BCS glory. If ND plays like champions today, then we fans get to do it all again in two weeks.

        Why would anyone want to stop hoping, stop dreaming, stop wanting?!

        GO IRISH!

  5. ndirish10 - Sep 21, 2012 at 4:42 PM

    Keith,

    I beg you, please change the picture of Denard doing the Heisman on ND players. Unless you strategically placed it for bulletin board material. GO IRISH!!!

    • Keith Arnold - Sep 21, 2012 at 7:48 PM

      Strategic.

      • jmfinsd - Sep 22, 2012 at 12:16 AM

        KA – Thanks for the great work. I understand the “strategic” reson for keeping that particular DR pic. However,and I say this with all due respect to MMF, can you do something to replace his photo on the Inside the Irish banner? I love Irish history, but I’m living/loving the present and think we should celebrate it. Maybe put a pic of a current ND player? Maybe a player we are all proud of for his on and off field conduct, for being an ND poster man(child), and for being a RKG? Anyone come to mind? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?

  6. NotreDan - Sep 21, 2012 at 5:04 PM

    Brady Hoke knows all these facts too. They may not have much talent besides DR but lets remember we have to defend 11. I’m hoping BK keeps a good mix of bend-don’t-break along with smear the QB.

    As our boys head to battle…

    May the field rise to meet you
    May the play clock always be 1 second back
    May the passes fall softly in your receivers hands
    May the lights shine softly upon your “domes”
    And until you meet them again, may God propel you over the wolverines!

    GO IRISH!!!

      You forgot: May the cornerbacks see the ball.

  7. oldestguard - Sep 21, 2012 at 5:23 PM

    Kelly and Diaco’s third whack at the Wolverines and Denard – they won’t miss this time.

    Kelly has been pushing the right buttons so far this season, on the field and on the psyche.

    Golson will outshine Denard.

    60 full minutes !

    • c4evr - Sep 21, 2012 at 5:38 PM

      Remember these words by oldestguard…

  8. jgater1981 - Sep 21, 2012 at 5:32 PM

    Keith, great article. Denard does have a few weapons this year, including that TE. Toussaint being back is big too. This game is so big for the Irish team and they know it. Everybody on that team wants to rub UM’s muzzle into the ground. I’m nervous, but excited, as this team is so talented they could do it. The running game (should we run, God forbid) should be able to get the chunk yardage Kelly speaks of.

  9. dudeacow - Sep 21, 2012 at 6:15 PM

    EG compared to DR

    EG completes 58% of his passes, 3 TD, 1 INT every 81 passes
    DR completes 54.7% of his passes, 6 TD, 1 INT every 18.75 passes

    EG has ran -11 yards, averages -.06, 2 TD
    DR has ran 351 yards, 8.8, 4 TD

    The stats are a bit skewed. EG was averaging somewhere around 66%, but then came the MSU game where he completed 14-32. Lots of those incompletions were smart decisions by throwing the ball away. In addition, negative yardage is added every time EG is sacked. In reality, he has probably run a little under 100 yards.

    DR has only completed 54.7%. Yes, he played Alabama but he also played Air Force and UMass which should have shot his completion rate up. It didn’t. He also has thrown an interception in every game- 2 against Alabama’s elite defense, 1 against Air Force’s sub-average defense, and 1 against UMass’s really bad defense.

    EG will never have the explosive running ability DR has, but by the time EG is a senior (if he is still the starting QB) I expect people to look on him and say that he was a better quarterback than Robinson.

  11. c4evr - Sep 21, 2012 at 7:22 PM

    After watching the highlights from last year’s game, I’m more convinced than ever of one thing in regards to D Robinson – as T’eo goes, so goes the Irish. He has a big game, DR goes nowhere.

  12. mentoneirish - Sep 21, 2012 at 8:22 PM

    Me: It will be 24-19, Michigan has the ball threatening to take the lead with 1 minute left in the game and this time Denard throws a pick six.
    Therefore, 31-19..

  13. seanb20124 - Sep 21, 2012 at 8:32 PM

    Gregg Williams

    • idratherbeinsouthbend - Sep 22, 2012 at 1:07 AM

      i’ll agree with the sentiment, but maybe we shouldn’t be quoting Gregg Williams?

  14. ndgoldandblue - Sep 21, 2012 at 9:39 PM

    Man, am I sick of hearing about Denard Robinson. I cannot wait for this game to end, so we can change the conversation. I’m sticking to my prediction of 31-24, but even if Michigan manages to win the game, I’ll just be happy that we can stop talking about this guy.

    It reminds me of the years Tim Tebow was playing at Florida. There was all this talk about how great Tebow was, but I knew that he was nothing more than a fullback who could throw wobbly ducks to uber-talented receivers like Percy Harvin. Robinson is no different, and, to take a phrase used by Viper in Top Gun, I’m tired of the media constantly blowing sunshine up his ass. Yeah, the guy’s a difference-maker now. Why? Because the talent is so spread out in college football that a tremendous athlete who throws lazy jump balls can be a Heisman candidate. The only way Robinson does anything in the NFL is as a wildcat quarterback or a slot receiver.

    But it doesn’t matter what the rationalists think since we’ve already crowned him. By the way the experts have been talking, the Irish shouldn’t even show up out of fear of embarrassment. But…I think I might just tune in on Saturday night just in case.

    • ndgoldandblue - Sep 21, 2012 at 9:47 PM

      Oh yeah…and another thing I’m tired of hearing about: Notre Dame’s weak defensive secondary. I do believe it was Shumate breaking up three passes last week, and Russell broke up the potential touchdown pass. Jackson has two ints. and Farley has played quite well. But that’s fine. The rest of the world can keep underestimating them. If they put up a performance similar to the one they had last weekend, the “experts” will start singing a different tune.

      • roughingthecenter - Sep 22, 2012 at 8:14 AM

        ndgoldandblue, can’t agree with you more. The media apparently doesn’t know the difference between “weak secondary depth” and a “weak secondary”. The secondary has been playing great, have been keeping everything in front of them. Just look at the yards per pass attempt by both Purdue and MSU. The other thing I hate hearing is any comparison between Denard and Golson. The are actually almost complete opposite players. If Golson threw the ball as bad as Denard he would be playing receiver. He also is not nearly as fast as Denard, but he extends plays with his quickness and elusiveness, always looking for the pass down field. Go Irish

    Off topic.

    Apologize, but I found this illuminating. If you’re annoyed by an off topic story, just skip this.

    Saw an insider’s account that sheds new light on BK’s tossing Dayne overboard last year.

    The week of the USC game is when BK made his infamous “my guys” comment
    Supposedly Florida had a bye week and CW came into town. Not sure if his family was still there or if maybe he was tending to some stuff around the house he still owned in SB.

    Got together with some of his old guys at Crist’s place one night and it turned into a full blown bitch session about BK. There were other players there as well, so it wasn’t all on Dayne. But clearly he was a participant, and possibly the bitcher-in-chief.

    Word filtered back to BK, and voila … “my guys” sh** hits the fan.
    With this as context, that comment now makes perfect sense, and I can’t blame BK for blowing up Dayne. A captain and team leader just can NOT be consorting with the old guard and throwing the coach under the bus. BK was understandably livid and that was the end of any semblance of a relationship with DC. One account said BK never spoke to him again all year. He did play him though against USC when Rees went down, against his better judgment. And we know how that ended.

    Only time Dayne played after that was in mop up duty against Navy.
    And then never again. Clearly BK had minimal faith in him heading into the season, then never trusted him again after this event.

    Has anyone else heard this? It was posted on another site, citing someone who covers ND football as the source, and a couple other posters said they’d heard the same thing from other sources. BTW, I also find this fairly appalling behavior on CW’s part. He should have shut it down immediately, but instead enjoyed the hell out of it.

    • mtndguy - Sep 21, 2012 at 11:09 PM

      Nude, sounds plausible as it does fit with what is publicly known as you point out. Players have to be loyal to the coach. It’s just like the military. No matter what your politics are, you have to be loyal to the commander in chief. Good find Nude, thanks for sharing.

      • 9irish - Sep 22, 2012 at 12:28 AM

        I agree with that. But at the same time, whenever there is a change of command, the phrase “well, sir, the way we used to do it…” is very common. They HATE that. Now of course we’re not talking about relieving somebody from command for incompetence, either. So, I think they were whining about having a harder life…which Kelly did not appreciate. Weis was a real piece of work, I tell you what.

        Go Irish
        Screw Blue

    • papadec - Sep 22, 2012 at 1:27 AM

      nude – If the story is true – Weis had no damn business going to Dayne’s place, or any other player’s place.

      • nudeman - Sep 22, 2012 at 11:43 AM

        Papa
        I’m inclined to believe the story is definitely true, based on how it was presented and the source.

        Crist’s behavior was the antithesis of how he presented himself: the ultimate good guy, team leader, rise above the fray type guy. Having said that, for a 21 year old kid who’s seeing his dream of playing his senior year as QB for the University of Notre Dame go up in smoke, I don’t condone it but at some level I at least understand it. Easy to get cynical in that situation.

        But Weis should just be completely ashamed of himself. Here’s a guy who by any measurement was a failure at ND; in over his head. Took an underachieving unit from Ty and made them a little worse every year. They were consistently undisciplined, out of shape, and OUT-SCHEMED.
        Yet … ND made him wealthy beyond his wildest dreams.
        As I said in my original post, he should have shut that thing down immediately. But apparently he reveled in it.

        BTW, I was a huge Dayne Crist fan. But it’s clear now from watching the KU games he just can’t play. He and Weis and Powlus are a perfect match.

    • NotreDan - Sep 22, 2012 at 7:45 AM

      Nude, I had heard something similar. The new piece for me was CW actually being in town.

      My sentiment? Shame on Charlie the tuna, what a small man he turned out to be if this is true. And… good riddance to him and DC.
