I studied the coach's-copy video of the Michigan Wolverines' offense versus the Notre Dame Fighting Irish's defense on Sunday.

Here are some notes/trends from Michigan's seven drives (28 plays) that amounted to 28 points in the 35-31 come-from-behind victory.

Breaking down Robinson

Quarterback Denard Robinson deserves credit for leading the Wolverines to an epic comeback win. He kept his poise at times when many other quarterbacks would have melted down.

Robinson made some difficult throws under pressure and used his elite quickness to buy extra time as a passer on several of his nine second-half completions (completed 9 of 15 attempts in second half). By my count, he accounted for 73 of the team's 77 rushing yards in the final two quarters.

Robinson was far from perfect, though.
