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.
