He didn't quite have enough to win the Heisman Trophy last season, but Denard Robinson has accomplished something that even Cam Newton wasn't able to do.
The Michigan quarterback has now officially gone mainstream and into the pop culture landscape after being the subject of a Jeopardy clue on a recent show.
This was the $200 clue under the category "Athletes":
Answer: "University of Michigan QB Denard Robinson, who runs a 10.4 100 meters, is known for never tying these."
Contestant's Response: "What are his shoes?"
Alex Trebek: "Yeah, that's right."
But wasn't the correct answer "Shoelaces," which is Robinson's nickname? Nonetheless, the judges accepted the answer. Check out the video below of the dual-threat signal-caller's big national TV moment.
