Saturday, September 25

Like a knee to the groin.

Michigan was off to a great start against Bowling Green. And Denard Robinson picked up
right where he left off last week. He completed all four of his passes for 60 yards and
rushed five times for 129 yards and two TDs. Ye-ah. You read that right. Five carries
for 129 yards. But then it happened... Shoelaces was hit after 47-yard run.

He went down, landing awkwardly on his knee and stayed on the turf near the sideline.
You could almost hear a collective gasp from Michigan all the way in Cincinnati. It
turns out it wasn't as bad as it first looked. Thank goodness! Even with Shoelaces on
the sideline, the Wolverines racked up 466 yards rushing, the most they have had since
1992, and 721 yards of offense. Tate Forcier, last season's starter, set a team record
by connecting on all 12 of his passes for 110 yards and a touchdown. And Devin Gardner
went 7-10 for 85 yards in the air including a touchdown with 25 yards rushing. UofM's
three quarterbacks combined to complete 23 of 26 passes (88.5%), the second-highest
completion percentage in school history. The Wolverines have some pretty amazing
quarterbacks. And Michigan is 2nd in the nation in rushing, averaging 331.3 yards
a game through four games so far this season. Oh, and Big Blue won 65-21.

I'm All In for Michigan Football!

GO Blue!

Next Saturday, the 4-0 Wolverines open their Big Ten schedule at Indiana.
The game's at 3.30pm on ESPNU.

UPDATE: Michigan coach RichRod said, "Denard should be fine. He's got a bruise."
