that is nice bonus change
I'll take any good press Michigan can get.
So Denard Robinson is in the driver's seat for the Heisman, nearly 900 yards of offense in two weeks on national TV will do that for you. Strangely enough though, he may have a harder time putting up such numbers in the next two weeks though, because we probably don't need him to win.
I am torn on this issue. I am really excited about what kind of numbers he could have through four games if he played every drive, but we could be looking at a great season if he can be 100% healthy heading into B10 play. I would guess from his attitude that Denard Robinson doesn't care and would just want what is best for the team.
I guess I would ultimately like to see him played as little as possible, especially against UMass, to keep him fresh for the long haul. It pains me though; he could have 500 yard games for the next two weeks in his sleep I think.
What do you all think? Get him his stats or avoid the risk of injury?

No wonder Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez said the spectacular new star of his spread offense might sleep on the trip back to Ann Arbor. He deserves some rest.
"Man, I didn't even know that," Robinson said of his record-breaking day -- the second week in a row he snapped single-game Michigan quarterback marks for total offense and rushing.
"Our offense came together," he said. "The offensive line blocked, the receivers catching, everything was clicking. ... I'm a team player and I don't look at stats."
Then Robinson showed that not only is he fast and strong, he's a clutch player, too. He led Michigan on a 12-play, 72-yard drive, capped his game-winning TD -- a fitting end.
"He [Roundtree] gave me a wink before the play. He winked at me and I knew I could go to him and I could count on him," Robinson said. "And he was there."
"Once I get on the field, I don't like to be caught from behind. It was like I can't get caught, can't get caught," Robinson said.
WHO IS GOING TO CATCH HIM! Go Blue!
Did anybody else have a problem with the play calling by RichRod on 3rd downs all game? It seemed liked we had numerous 3rd and shorts (4 yards or less) and the staff didn't call D-Rob's number that often.
With D-Rob having his way with defenses so far this season, it would seem obvious to let Denard have a crack at it rather than passing so often.
Intersting pic. Looks like a missed facemask on Denard's fumble. Not that it mattered that much but it would've been nice to have balanced out the 15 yrd penalties.
