Michigan offense surges without Robinson

September, 25, 2010
The only thing to slow down Denard Robinson this season has been injury.

And even after Robinson left today's game in the first quarter with a left knee injury, Michigan's offense couldn't be stopped.

The Wolverines exploded for 65 points and 721 yards in crushing Bowling Green 65-21 at the Big House. Although Robinson's knee could be a concern going forward -- he told reporters on the field after the game that he'll be OK -- there were few negatives for Rich Rodriguez's crew.

The biggest positive was Tate Forcier, who looked extremely impressive in his season debut, completing all 12 of his pass attempts for 110 yards and a touchdown. Although Rodriguez first went to Gardner when Robinson went down, Forcier might have established himself as Michigan's backup quarterback. I think it is the right call. As good as Gardner will be for Michigan, Forcier brings more experience to the table. With his head right, he can be an effective weapon for Michigan this fall.

Receiver Roy Roundtree had another huge day, hauling in nine receptions for 118 yards. Michigan's defense was better, recording two interceptions and holding Bowling Green to 283 yards.
