PLAYERS: Brady HokeDenard Robinson
TEAMS:
Brady Hoke joins his “Team” as they enter the field in The Big House by jumping up to touch the Go Blue M Club Supports You banner in one of the country’s greatest college football traditions. “THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM.” If you are a life-long fan of the Michigan Wolverines, you are familiar with those words that highlighted iconic coach Bo Schembechler’s legendary speech in 1983.  He stressed that no one player is greater than THE TEAM and that success will only come to those who play as a TEAM.  That speech rings true every season and every game, but particularly in “THE GAME.”  The rivalry from which all rivalries are judged:  Michigan vs. Ohio State. With Brady Hoke and Team 133 traveling as underdogs to Columbus (where they have not won since 2000) to face Urban Meyer and the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes, a.k.a. “Ohio,” it is going to take nothing less than a true team effort to leave “The Shoe” victorious.  No individual player can be singled out for this showdown

The Wolverines took a 21-20 lead into halftime, but were unable to even penetrate into Ohio State territory in the second half.

Denard Robinson Gets Hit From Both Sides by Ohio State Defenders, Just Keeps Running (Video)

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is known to have quite the set of wheels, but his toughness rating jumped to another level Saturday against Ohio State. Robinson, who was running up the field behind some solid blocking, found himself in the middle of a tackling sandwich by two Buckeye defenders, who collided into him with airborne hits from either side. But the joke was on the...

Robinson jack of all trades in first quarter

COLUMBUS, Ohio Denard Robinson was a jack of all trades in the first quarter Saturday against Ohio State. Robinson lined up at quarterback in the shotgun formation on Michigans first play from scrimmage, and eluded penetration to gallop for 38 yards around right end. Nicknamed Shoelaces for regularly losing his cleats, which he does not tie, Robinson was true to form on that run...

Robinson breaks tackles for 67-yard touchdown

Denard Robinson broke this massive 67-yard touchdown run to give Michigan the lead with less than a minute to go in the half.  Shoelace broke through two would be tacklers and then was off to the races and no one came close to him afterwards.  Denard has 124 yards on 6 carries and will look to add to his totals after the half.

Disappointing offense for Wolverines

Last week, the Michigan Wolverines debuted a new, exciting offensive scheme. Why didn't they use it against Ohio State? Against Iowa, Devin Gardner spent most of the game at quarterback, with Denard Robinson at his new superback slot. Robinson lined up at running back, slot receiver and took some direct snaps in the shotgun. Robinson was the focus of the Hawkeyes defense...

Lightning-quick QBs pose problems for defenses

The most potent weapons for No. 20 Michigan and No. 4 Ohio State are undoubtedly their quarterbacks. Pity their poor defenses in the big showdown on Saturday. Devin Gardner and Denard Robinson, who may line up everywhere but behind the center due to an arm injury, are the speedsters who lead the Wolverines' attack. Meanwhile the Buckeyes rely on Braxton Miller, who likes to...

College Fantasy Football: Week 13 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em QBs

Start ‘Em:Braxton Miller – Ohio State vs. MichiganLast year at this time my gut had a feeling that Denard Robinson would carry his team against their hated rival, and this year my gut has a similar feeling.
