Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson has emerged as the front-runner for this year’s Heisman, perhaps less for for his 244 passing and 258 rushing yard performance against Notre Dame last week than for an incredible shot taken by a student photographer. Check out the above shot of Robinson evading the Irish and the one here of the Heisman pose. Unbelievable. Maybe if Reggie Bush had stuck to the stiff-arm and ditched his Superman end zone dives, he would be keeping his.
According to a story on Deadspin, Michigan student and photography buff Sam Wolson took the shot for the school paper, The Michigan Daily, and didn’t even think twice of it until a colleague took note of the similarity. After sending it to the Associated Press, it blew up, and rightfully so.
