Like most of his Michigan teammates, Denard Robinson did not have a very good night against Alabama on Saturday. He finished the evening completing only 11 of his 26 pass attempts, with twice as many interceptions as touchdowns, and only 27 yards rushing.
He also got banged up quite a bit by the Alabama defense, whether the Tide was hitting him or he was hitting them.

Now, while I don't mind trash talk, I feel as though I should point out to these Spartans that their own quarterback, Andrew Maxwell, didn't exactly have a great night in Michigan State's opener, either.
Maxwell threw for 238 yards, but he also threw 3 interceptions against a Boise State defense that only had two returning starters from 2011.
I can only imagine what he'd have done against Alabama.
