Denard Robinson shows his accuracy hasn’t improved this offseason

Poor Denard Robinson.

Also season he faced a lot of criticism because of his lack of accuracy. It didn't matter that he helped take Michigan to the Sugar Bowl — its first BCS bowl since 2006 — and beat Virginia Tech 23-20 in overtime. Nope, Michigan fans (and probably its coaches) wanted to see Robinson improve upon his 55 percent completion rate and maybe cut his 15 interceptions in half.

Unfortunately, nearly two months removed from the BCS game, Robinson's accuracy hasn't gotten any better.

During ESPN's college basketball Gameday at Michigan last Saturday, the crew asked Robinson to throw a football through a basketball hoop from one end of the court to the other — about a 30-yard pass. And, spoiler alert, he missed.

His first attempt was the closest, the next two were ugly and the final attempt, he tucked, ran up the court and then flubbed a potential layup or dunk - a couple times. It was an all-around embarrassing effort for the Wolverines' starter.

Even host Rece Davis was kind of taunting Robinson saying, "There's no Junior Hemmingway out there Denard, you've got to put it on line."

Perhaps Robinson needs to call former BYU quarterback and current Kansas transfer Jake Heaps for pointers. Heaps threw a football into the basket from the stands last year during a promo with Jimmer Fredette last year.
