WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Denard Robinson looked like his old, efficient self Saturday. The Michigan quarterback rushed 24 times for 235 yards, threw for one touchdown and helped lead the Wolverines to a 44-13 rout at Purdue. It was a stark contrast to the frustrated quarterback who wound up apologizing for his sub-par performance at Notre Dame two weeks ago. But with two weeks to prepare for the game, Robinson atoned for any mistakes he made against the Fighting Irish. The senior was 8 of 15 through the air and did not throw an interception for the first time this season. He also had three runs of 35 yards or longer and consistently moved the Wolverines (3-2, 1-0 Big Ten) into scoring position on another milestone day. Robinson became the Big Ten's career rushing leader among quarterbacks, passing Indiana's Antwaan Randle El (3,895) midway through the fourth quarter. Robinson now has 3,905 yards and broke a tie with Kent State's Josh Cribbs to move into fifth pla...

Michigan – Purdue U 59 I’ve seen all four Michigan games this season and I’ll assume that HC Brady Hoke knows what he is doing in trying to turn Denard Robinson into a pocket passer, but I’ll admit I am not seeing it. Robinson definitely does not look comfortable in the pocket and his passing numbers have suffered. His pass efficiency is down, his completion percentage is...

Robinson gets license to run from Purdue

ANN ARBOR -- In sports, it's generally considered an obvious move to focus your defensive game plan against your opponent's best offensive weapon.For instance, Bob Melvin isn't likely to tell his Oakland A's pitching staff to walk Don Kelly in order to face Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera, and no NFL defense has ever focused on stopping the Lions' Titus Young while...
