ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Denard Robinson has spent the last couple months enjoying every moment of his college experience.
This week he goes back from student-athlete to athlete-student.
After a winter when he met President Obama and showed up at dozens of Michigan sporting events, Robinson and his teammates are back at Schembechler Hall for spring practice. As a senior and coming off...
How does it feel to be a senior?
“Man, college goes by fast, and right now I’m taking on a leadership role and trying to be the best quarterback I can be for the team and be the best leader I can be for the team. Right now just trying to get better at everything I can get better at: watching film, going in with teammates and throwing extra routes, whoever’s...

After yesterday's one-two gut punch of basketball news, let's talk football, shall we?

With the time to withdraw from the draft coming up as quickly, decisions need to be made with little information. Today, the NBA Draft Blog Scouting Report looks at another freshman who is rumored to have one eye already on the NBA – Michigan’s Trey Burke. Burke had a good freshman...
Michigan fans are currently fretting about whether or not their fabulous frosh, Trey Burke, will return for his sophomore season or jump to the NBA. When you bring a program back into prominence like John Beilein has done with U-M Hoops, these are the “problems” that tend to develop. Talented players want their shot at the NBA. If they feel the time is right, they have to take...
In the immediate aftermath of yesterday's Trey Burke PANIC I said that Michigan wouldn't have to wait too long to know whether Burke will make us all emo. A correction: the NBA early entry deadline is the 29th. The deadline to withdraw is the 10th. IE, there is no deadline to withdraw anymore.
