Out in Ann Arbor, Iowa has taken a 14-7 lead on the Michigan Wolverines. The Hawkeyes' second touchdown came on a short field, thanks to a Tyler Sash interception.
That interception came on a pretty terrible throw; Denard Robinson either screwed up the timing with his receiver or just overthrew him by about 15 yards. Either way, Robinson threw the ball directly to Sash, who returned the ball to Michigan's 49.
And that's kind of what to expect from Robinson. He's 8/11 on the day for 74 yards, and he's not a bad passer, but he's just far less dangerous as a thrower than as a runner. He showed that last season against Iowa, he showed it last week against Michigan State, and he's showing it today too.
But you know what? That's okay. He's a sophomore, first-year starter at quarterback, and Rich Rodriguez has shown to be a perfectly capable playcaller when it comes to limiting the amount of tough throws that Robinson needs to make. And he's still -- yes, still -- a legitimate Heisman contender. So he's not terrible. He's just not a talented thrower just yet.
