Denard Robinson leaves game with knee injury

After shaking the Bowling Green defense up to the tune of 188 yards (60 passing, 128 rushing) through half a quarter, Michigan quarterback and human highlight reel Denard Robinson shook himself up.  Following a 46-yard run Robinson was tackled along the sideline and looked to have come down pretty hard on his knee.

He sat on the sideline in pain for a bit while being attended to by Michigan's trainers before eventually moving to the bench for further evaluation.  Devin Gardner came on for Robinson and summarily led the Wolverines on another touchdown drive to give Michigan a 21-0 lead in the first quarter against Bowling Green.

There is no word on the severity of Robinson's injury, but given that the game already seems to be over, it wouldn't be all that shocking if Rich Rodriguez and the Wolverines played it safe by keeping Robinson out for the rest of this game.  Considering that Robinson is currently making his way to the Michigan locker room -- with a smile on his face -- odds are that's exactly what Rodriguez's plans are.

Updates on Robinson's status as we learn more.

Denard Robinson leaves game with knee injury

As a huge college football fan, I would just like to see the Big 10 play the Pac 10 more, sure.  It allows for great interest in the game and would put on some spectacular games for sure.  I think we can all agree on this point........if college football allowed for a true playoff system, then it wouldn't matter so much what conference plays who in the creampuff games since it would all work out in the end with the playoffs.  Until we see a playoff system adopted, then eliminating as many creampuffs on everyone's schedule would be most fair in helping to determine "right's" in playing for a national championship.  This is exactly why we have seen the rise of the TCU's and the Bouise States over the past few years.  It's the only way they can make the big stage without a playoff system....play the big boys and play them on the road, if possible to gain support and interest in the program.

Ohio State has at Miami and Colorado, Wisconsin plays Oregon State, Penn St. has Alabama, Iowa plays Pitt, Plus 3 Games lined up with Notre Dame...next season, but we play "creampuffs" ? Nothin like Texas who play the likes of Wyoming and Rice or USC with Hawaii...which Hawaii has only won one game... 31-28--- against Army..wow! The defending National Champs rough up powers like San Jose State and Duke...Lets get real. All good teams face "creampuffs" to help get in the flow. We'll see who's talking when bowl season rolls around. Last year the Big Ten had 4 major wins (OSU over Oregon in the Rose Bowl, Iowa over Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl, Penn State over LSU in the Capital One Bowl, and Wisconsin over Miami in the Champs Bowl) Remember... the Big Ten is soft????

Every major conference team plays against some patsy teams for their non conference schedule. Winning games in a tough conference like the Big Ten, SEC or Big 12 is tough enough that schools from those conferences can afford to play weaker teams in their non conference schedule. That's the way it is, the way it's always been and the way it's always going to be. Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin all play against one another. It's not like Boise State or TCU where quality wins will really only come from outside of conference play.

Ok, so you bring up a few games to "prove" your point, but the Big 10 has beaten the Pac-10 just as much.  Mich vs Washington in 02, Iowa over Zona, OSU over Oregon just this past year in the rose bowl.

It was just announced that Michigan is going to play Bama in 2012.  MSU has a contract to play Bama as well.  OSU has contracts to play big time non-conference games through 2016.  So the fact that you are trying to bust the chops of the Big 10 for playing a weak non-conference schedule is just sad.  No one wants to take on that big OCG because no one wants to lose the National Championship in September.  If USC's hardest non-conference game is ND then they are no better them Michigan.  I will give the Pac-10 credit, they will travel to play big games, so props to that.  SEC teams dont travel farther north then Tenn.  OU and TX wont leave their states usually.  I want to see the days were UCLA and Michigan play again.  But to single out just the Big 10 shows west coast kool-aid.  No one wants that early loss, and why not give small schools 450K to get a whooping early in Sept?

All you have to do is look at when the Big 10 plays the Pac 10 head to head, whether in the regular season or in the bowl games.  The result?  The majority of the time, the Pac 10 smokes the Big 10

If there was any truth to that statement then wouldn't the Pac Ten have a significant lead in the head to head record? That's not the case however.

You're a dumbass.  How is a 20-19 lucky blocked extra point win being smoked?  Go back to Amateurville and play romper room on another board.  Tools like you make this world a crappier place to live in dealing with dillweeds like you.

Oh, I understand college football very well.  I understand that wealthy universities have nothing to do with winning QUALITY football games.  They become wealthy by scheduling creampuffs that pay them to take their games at home to run up the score and call it a "quality win" and beat their chest that they are won of the best teams in the country.  Bull.  It's too bad the strength of schedule never seems to work in college football like it does with college basketball.  I also understand that USC beat down your Penn State Nittany Lions the last time they played and also beat down your 5-time Big 10 champion Ohio State Buckeyes two years in a row.  Case closed.  Big 10 is overrated, period.  They can't beat the other major conferences head to head.  Texas at Ohio State?  Texas won.  Penn State at Alabama?  Alabama won.  Oregon at Michigan?  Oregon won.  The list goes on and on.  You lose.

Remember Arizona St. vs. Wisconsin last week?  Smoked!!!
You are are a douchebag.  USC is the only team with any tradition at all, and it's a tradition of cheating.  The PAC-10 is by far the worst major conference.

All you have to do is look at when the Big 10 plays the Pac 10 head to head, whether in the regular season or in the bowl games.  The result?  The majority of the time, the Pac 10 smokes the Big 10 and this is why the Big 10 conference gets pummelled for being overrated year after year.  All of these Big 10 homer bloggers on this board are getting all bent out of shape and are just frustrated that their conference blows.  It's about that time when they have to play tougher and more meaningful games; only to see their "powerhouse" and "overrated" Top 25 teams falls apart, making the media and college football fans once again scratch their heads asking, "Why the hell are these Big 10 teams always preaseasoned in the top 25 and the suck ass when they play real teams?"  I love love to see USC, Arizona, Arizona State, Stanford, Oregon State, Oregon, Washington, and Cal go head to had with any of the Big 10 teams.  Wait!  They have on occassion and who won the vast majority of the time.  Yep, the Pac 10.  I know it hurts and drives all of you guys nuts...even the Buckeye himself.  Remember Iowa last weekend with Arizona.  Smoked!
