Michigan’s Robinson ‘all right’ with fewer carries
Since Rodriguez was fired and Hoke was hired, the public has only seen Robinson play once and he wasn’t impressive.
In the spring game, Robinson was 5 of 14 for 70 yards passing and had six rushes for 60 yards. He threw an interception that was negated by a defensive penalty, had a lost fumble wiped away because of a pre-snap whistle on the offense and recovered a fumble after struggling with another center exchange.
“I don’t think that’s a fair evaluation of him,” tight end Kevin Koger said. “He was great all spring, but defense played great that day. I think he’s looked good so far this year in camp.”
Robinson was often in the shotgun in Rodriguez’s spread, but will now take most snaps under center just as he did at Deerfield Beach (Fla.) High School. His footwork has changed considerably as a dropback passer and the coaches are trying to get him to not have “happy feet” in the pocket.
“They’ve been getting on me about it,” Robinson said. “It’s a little different than what I’ve done here, but I was under center a lot in high school.”
Rodriguez recruited Robinson out of Florida and the two have kept in touch.
“I talked to him just before camp started,” Robinson said. “He just told me to listen to what the coaches are telling me.”
It sounds like Robinson has already picked up on one phrase that had quickly made a comeback at Schembechler Hall when asked about relying on teammates to make more plays than they did last year.
“It’s not hard for me at all because I love seeing other people be successful,” Robinson said. “It’s about the team, the team, the team.”
