Denard Robinson, Robinson was a school record 383 yards of total offense in his first start as quarterback for the Wolverines in the 30-10 victory over Connecticut. The Big Ten offensive player of the week rushed for 197 yards, the largest of a Michigan quarterback and threw for 186 more to complete a sizzling 19-of-22 passes. Not bad for a guy who had been involved in three-way competition for the starting job and was not sure how much he would play.
“I really do not know what to expect,” said Robinson in the Big Ten weekly teleconference. “(Coach Rico Rodriguez) just told us, ‘Denard, intends to make the first move, and everyone else is ready.” ”
It seems that the chain’s first job is the time, but is quick to share the credit. “They put me in a great situation,” he said. “The line was blocking well and we just had a great performance.”
It was the kind of performance Michigan fans probably expected to see when the school hired Rodriguez away from West Virginia, where the dual threat Pat White routinely put big points in his high-flying offenses.
But perhaps the aspect of the game Robinson has to see the crowd at the Big House was more excited about the enthusiasm displayed in the peloton, bringing a little happiness to a program used to proud of losing seasons.
“It’s still a game,” he said. “You’ve just got to enjoy being there on the field.”
It also seems to enjoy contact, although a success after a tough race caused him to miss a couple of snaps.
“All the men on the line D-have were telling me to go down.” You have to take what you have and save yourself. It will not hurt. ”
When asked if he would take the advice of his teammates next week at Notre Dame, Robinson laughed and said: “We’ll see.” It seems that going to do much slippage.
