The original plan for Michigan on Saturday versus Connecticut was for Denard Robinson to start, with Devin Gardner and Tate Forcier to see time later in the game. Robinson, however, played so well that the Wolverines’ other quarterbacks barely saw the field.
The sophomore from Florida rushed for a school-record 197 yards in Michigan’s 30-10 victory over the Huskies. Robinson gained the total on 29 carries, also running for a touchdown.
But everyone knew Robinson could run. How he passes will be the determining factor in the ultimate success of the Michigan offense. And Robinson didn’t disappoint there, making throws on time and with accuracy. Overall, he completed 19-of-22 passes for 186 yards and another touchdown.
