Report: Denard Robinson Expected To Start

Via Joe Schad, Heather Cox is reporting that Denard Robinson is expected to start today's game against UConn. Cox's report also includes something interesting about what the depth chart behind Robinson may look like.

Heather Cox: Denard Robinson expected to start, D. Gardner then T. Forcier third

Robinson starting would come as no surprise, but Gardner being ahead of Forcier would be one in my mind. While Forcier did go through the whole no wings on his helmet thing, suggesting he was in the doghouse, I would think experience would be preferred over putting a true freshman into the game if Robinson has to come out. Then again, with the way Rich Rodriguez has talked up Gardner's talent, perhaps he has just passed Forcier by for what he can do on the field.
