Michigan Wolverines center David Molk was named the recipient of the 2o11 Rimington Trophy which is awarded annually to the nation’s top center. Molk was also named a Walter Camp Foundation First-Team All-American. ”I am truly humbled to be the Rimington Trophy recipient,” said Molk. “It’s such an honor considering all of the great centers around the country, including the other finalists. It’s an individual award, but it’s a credit to our offensive line, our team and our coaching staff. I’m proud to represent the University of Michigan.”
Molk, a 5th year senior, anchored Michigan’s offensive line which paved the way for two 1,000 yard rushers this season (Denard Robinson and Fitzgerald Toussaint). He also earned All-Big Ten honors and was named the inaugural Big Ten Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year.
Molk will make his 26th consecutive start on January 3rd when Michigan takes on Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.

For the first time in his Michigan career, junior quarterback Denard Robinson admitted publicly he was concerned. "A little bit, but the doctor said I was going to be OK," he said Friday. The trepidation came earlier this season, when Robinson was admitted to the hospital for a night after contracting a staph infection in his forearm.
Michigan football coach Brady Hoke was one of the coaches featured this week on CBS Sports Network's "Inside College Football."
The show aired on Tuesday.
Here's an excerpt from the interview you can view here:
"I'm a D-Line coach. When my wife introduces me to this day, she says, 'he's a defensive line coach at Michigan.' And that's...
Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson spent a night in a local hospital earlier this season to treat a staph infection, the junior said during a press availability Friday afternoon.
You oftentimes hear positions in college football described as “tough jobs.” Whether the meaning of that phrase is interpreted as "tough places to succeed" or "tough places to win championships at," the word “tough” is usually confused with a larger notion of a job which is loaded with abundant “pressure.”

Formation notes: Almost entirely shotgun this week. As far as OSU's defense goes: they run a nickel package on every down with Tyler Moeller the "star", a sort of hybrid safety/LB.
