Denard Robinson Thinks He Can Beat Usain Bolt In A Race

While Robinson may not be able to take Bolt, it seems incontrovertible that he did toke Bolt. To be fair, Denard himself admits he'd get destroyed in the 100m against Bolt, but thinks he'd have a shot in a 40-yard dash.

"I've watched him run, and I'm pretty sure I can beat him in a 40-yard dash," Robinson said at Michigan's media day on Sunday. "I'd get a better start, and I could take him.

"At 60 yards, I'd be in trouble, and at 100 meters, he'd be gone, but I could get him in a 40."


Michigan's second string quarterback Devin Gardner has his back. "[W]hen it comes to football speed at 40 yards, I'd take Denard. He's that fast." The whole thing was also Gardner's idea so maybe he's less supporting his teammate and more throwing him to the wolves.

Either way, I'd rather see Bolt race Rich Eisen in wingtips at the combine. Let's make that happen.
