Don't count Florida coach Urban Meyer as one of those people surprised by what Denard Robinson is doing at Michigan this season.

Meyer tried to recruit Robinson, a Deerfield Beach,, Fla., product, and liked him more as an athlete and not necessarily as an every-down quarterback. Still, Meyer thought Robinson had what it took to play that position.

"I thought he was fantastic," Meyer said. "He's a good young man. We wanted him that badly, because we thought he could be our curveball. I thought he could be a quarterback because he has a nice throwing motion, and he's a ridiculous athlete."
