Denard Robinson

QB Michigan, Soph.

Last Week: 16-of-25 passing for 239 yards, two TDs and one INT; 22 rushes for 121 yards and two TDs in a 48-28 loss to Wisconsin

Season: 147-of-232 passing for 2,229 yards, 16 TDs and 10 INTs; 227 rushes for 1,538 yards and 14 TDs

Shoelace has now broken Beau Morgan's 14-year-old single-season rushing record for a quarterback and has become the first player in NCAA history with 1,500 yards rushing and 1,500 yards passing in the same year. There's no question Robinson has been electrifying in his first season as a starter, but after falling to Wisconsin his Wolverines are now 0-3 against Top 25 teams and 3-4 in the Big Ten. And they still have to play No. 8 Ohio State. It may not be fair to deride Shoelace for Michigan's struggles, but like it or not, winning is part of the equation.

Next Up: Saturday at No. 8 Ohio State
