Denard Robinson's big day running the ball for Michigan wasn't enough to overcome big plays by South Carolina in the Outback Bowl.
The senior quarterback lined up mostly at running back in his final college game and rushed for 100 yards on 23 carries in the Wolverines' 33-28 loss to the Gamecocks on Tuesday.
''It's a bittersweet feeling,'' Robinson said. ''That's my family, that's my brothers out there. I've been with them for four years, and it's come to an end.''
Devin Gardner threw for 214 yards in his fifth start for No. 19 Michigan (8-5) since Robinson injured his right elbow late in the season. Robinson took some snaps at quarterback Tuesday and even attempted his first passes in a game since Oct. 27.
''His legacy is set,'' Gardner said of Robinson. ''I don't think anything really has to be said on that topic. Everybody has seen what he's done for the university.''
