Denard Robinson Is On The Cover Of Sports Illustrated This Week

Sports Illustrated's 2012 college football preview issue will be out this week, and Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is featured on one of the covers. There are five different regional covers for the preview issue, and in addition to Robinson, Alabama's A.J. McCarron, Oklahoma's Landry Jones, West Virginia's Geno Smith and USC's Matt Barkley are given the spotlight.

Interestingly enough, Michigan State is actually ranked higher than Michigan in SI's preseason poll. The Spartans are eighth in the nation, whereas Michigan is only 13th. Despite this, SI went with a Michigan player for one of the regional covers.

The last time Michigan had a player on a regional cover of the college football preview issue was in 2007. Mike Hart was featured, and the supposed SI cover jinx was in full effect with Michigan losing to Appalachian State in its opening game.
