Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson loves being a Wolverine.

The electrifying playmaker threw for 18 touchdowns and rushed for 16 more in 2011, earning All-Big Ten honors and leading the Wolverines to a Sugar Bowl victory in their first season under Brady Hoke.

But Robinson also loves being at Michigan. If you had any doubts, just take a look into the student section from No. 19 Michigan's 60-59 win over No. 9 Michigan State Tuesday night on the hardwood. There was Robinson on the front row, taking in a basketball game with his fellow students.

This is just one of the many on and off-field reasons the Wolverines are thrilled to have another year with Denard in the maize and blue.

VIDEO: Denard Robinson renews commitment to UM

Posted by Chip Patterson

With new head coach Brady Hoke's arrival in Ann Arbor, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson saw the end of the scheme that helped him become on of college football's most dangerous offensive threats.  But just because Rich Rodriguez (who recruited Robinson to the Wolverines) has been replaced does not mean that Robinson will be seeking other playing opportunities.

Robinson recently reaffirmed his commitment to the program publicly, speaking to a local television station about his decision to stay in Ann Arbor and play for Brady Hoke.  He specifically mentioned his teammates, and advice from family and friends to welcome the new challenge.  If Robinson is able to come close to replicating his success with Hoke, he will quickly become one of the most sought after talents at the next level.  The ability to adjust and thrive in multiple systems will begin to erase Robinson's stigma as a poor dropback passer. 

Of course, limiting the interceptions will help erase that stigma as well, but you have to start somewhere.  The Michigan offense was built for the Robinson-led spread attack, so the adjustments could be a little rough for the Wolverines at first.  Hoke has shown his ability to create quick turnarounds at Ball State and San Diego State, but the bar is much higher with Michigan fans.  Losing a talent like Robinson would be a huge blow, regardless of what system is in place.  Now the new staff can begin working with their best offensive threat, developing the look for Michigan in 2011.
