Following his record-breaking performance against UConn, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson has been named the Big Ten's Offensive Player of the Week and the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week.â†µ
Robinson rushed for 197 yards and a touchdown on 29 carries and passed for 186 yards and a touchdown while completing 19 of his 22 attempts. Those stats set the Michigan record for total offense and rushing yards by a quarterback, which is pretty good considering it was Robinson's first career start.â†µ
In addition to breaking Michigan records, Shoelace's great day was quite a bit deal on a conference level.â†µ
BIG TEN NOTES: MICH QB Denard Robinson becomes second player in Big Ten history to surpass 180 yards passing and rushing.â†µ
When I was at the game I knew Robinson was putting up some ridiculous numbers, but it wasn't until I got home later that day and looked at the boxscore that I realized just how amazing his day truly was.
