ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- This is it, Denard Robinson's last chance to set records at college, to move up among Michigan's career leaders.

And one final chance to set the record he likely would be most associated with if he broke it -- the FBS career quarterback rushing mark.

Here's a look at what Robinson needs to set that mark -- and a brief glance back at some of the records he already has:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Denard Robinson is back, and while his role might be ever-changing with Michigan, his productivity is still intact.

And it means, despite a two-and-a-half game absence, Robinson still has a shot at the FBS quarterback rushing record held by former West Virginia quarterback Pat White.

While Robinson is bouncing between positions, an NCAA spokesman said earlier this week Robinson's rushing numbers would still count as quarterback rushing yards because it matters what he is classified as -- in this case a quarterback -- instead of where he lines up to start a play.

FBS CAREER QUARTERBACK RUSHING YARDS:

1. Pat White, West Virginia (2005-08): 4,480 yards.

  • Total yards Robinson needs to pass White: 208.
  • Average over one regular season game to pass White: 208.

Denard Robinson watched from the sidelines for a whole game for the first time in his career Saturday and while Michigan beat Minnesota 35-13, his chances at holding some more Michigan and NCAA records is starting to fade away.

With three regular-season games and at least a bowl game remaining, here is where Robinson stands. Missing the Minnesota game also hindered the chances for one other record for tracking purposes -- Michigan's career rushing record. So for now, we are only looking at Pat White's NCAA quarterback rushing mark.

FBS CAREER QUARTERBACK RUSHING YARDS:

1. Pat White, West Virginia (2005-08): 4,480 yards.

  • Total yards Robinson needs to pass White: 306.
  • Average over three regular-season games to pass White: 102.0.

Denard Robinson watched from the sidelines Saturday as Michigan lost to Nebraska, 23-9, and there was little he could do about it, being knocked from the game in the first half.

Consequently, Robinson's chase of some records also has taken a major hit -- to the point of eliminating Michigan's career rushing yardage and the Big Ten total yardage marks from this week's watch. In records Robinson could still attain, here is where he stands.

FBS CAREER QUARTERBACK RUSHING YARDS:

1. Pat White, West Virginia (2005-08): 4,480 yards.

  • Total yards Robinson needs to pass White: 306.
  • Average over four regular season games to pass White: 76.5.

As Denard Robinson continues through his final season at Michigan, the senior quarterback continues to climb among the career leaders at his school, in his conference as well as all of FBS.

Last week, Robinson passed former Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick for third place in career quarterback rushing yards and former Iowa quarterback Chuck Long for seventh place in Big Ten history in career all-purpose yards.

Below is where Robinson stands with records he has a chance -- even if it is remote in some cases -- of setting with anywhere between five and seven games left in his career.

Denard Robinson qualified for the 40-40 club against Illinois on Saturday, one as rare as its baseball counterpart.

Doug Benc/Getty ImagesDenard Robinson now has something in common with Tim Tebow.
In baseball, the 40-40 club belongs to members who accumulate 40 stolen bases and 40 home runs in a season, and it has four members. In college football, the 40-40 is a career accomplishment -- quarterbacks who have amassed 40 rushing touchdowns and 40 passing touchdowns.

Robinson became the eighth member of that group against the Illini.

Here is that group, half of whom played in the Midwest:

  • Antwaan Randle El, Indiana (1998-2001): 44 rushing touchdowns; 42 passing touchdowns.

As Denard Robinson continues through his final season at Michigan, the senior quarterback continues to climb among the career leaders at his school, in his conference as well as all of FBS .

Robinson is not going to set many, if any, of Michigan’s career passing records, although he could finish third or fourth in most categories. He also could end up among the Big Ten’s top 10 career rushers (Michigan State’s Javon Ringer is 10th with 4,398 yards) and career rushing touchdowns in the Big Ten (Wisconsin’s Billy Marek and Ohio State’s Eddie George are tied for ninth with 44).

Below is where Robinson stands with records he has a chance -- even if it is remote in some cases -- of setting with anywhere between seven and nine games left in his career.

Robinson and the NCAA record book

While Michigan junior quarterback Denard Robinson will likely finish his career at the end of next season at or near the top of the Wolverines' passing, rushing and total offense ledgers, getting there on the NCAA level is a lot more difficult.

And save for a couple of records, it'll be a reach for him to reach the top 25 -- but that is impressive in itself considering he wasn't used terribly much as a freshman.

Here we break down where he currently stands, who is next on the list what he'd need to average through 14 games to set the record (giving Michigan the benefit of the doubt of reaching a bowl next season but not necessarily the Big Ten championship game), his likeliness to set or tie the record and a guess where he'll eventually end up. This will be career marks only.

As Michigan junior quarterback Denard Robinson moves up the NCAA’s career rushing list for quarterbacks, there’s a legitimate question that might come into play.

What of his rushing yards against Western Michigan?

The Big Ten and Michigan are counting the stats from the Wolverines’ abbreviated 34-10 win over the Broncos. But the NCAA, which is the ruling body on these matters, is not counting the statistics.
