Michigan QB Robinson aims for focus at Notre Dame
ANN ARBOR, MICH. (AP) - Denard Robinson’s dazzling day was witnessed by the largest crowd to watch a football game and by many more on television.
Michigan’s speedy quarterback with a solid arm and catchy nickname is about to take his talents to a bigger stage.
Robinson and the Wolverines, coming off a season-opening rout over Connecticut, will play rival Notre Dame in its iconic stadium on network TV with millions tuning in Saturday to see if he can duplicate his first start.
“I just have to stay focused,” he said.
Good luck, Shoelace.
Robinson created a buzz by running for 197 yards and a touchdown and throwing for 186 yards and another score in a 30-10 win against the Huskies.
College football’s winningest team desperately needed a star to emerge this season after a pair of miserable years stunted enthusiasm about the Wolverines. Doubts had been raised about whether Rodriguez’s spread offense could work for the team after Bo Schembechler and two of his assistants, Gary Moeller and Lloyd Carr, led the program to success for decades with offenses that were more traditional.
Rodriguez’s ways have worked at every stop he’s made from Glenville State to West Virginia.
“If you look at Rich Rodriguez’s quarterback situation, with Pat White obviously, he’s had some extraordinarily gifted quarterbacks,” Kelly said Sunday. “That’s what makes it the most difficult because you are isolating one-on-one a linebacker, a defensive end, on a quarterback who is not just a quarterback, he’s a great athlete.”
“I would say that Rich would feel very, very comfortable with this guy at quarterback because this is what Rich did when we played him at West Virginia with Pat White,” Edsall said. “I’m not saying that he’s Pat White because Pat was pretty good, but with time I think that this young man will have a chance to become a very good quarterback.”
