Michigan at Nebraska: Postgame Grades from the Wolverines' L vs. the Huskers

The 22nd-ranked Michigan Wolverines lost 23-9 to Nebraska in Lincoln on Saturday night. Michigan was derailed by an injury to Denard Robinson, which eliminated all offense for the Wolverines following his exit in the second quarter. The Michigan defense played valiantly, but this game would not be won without touchdowns.

This game provided the Michigan coaching staff with opportunities to prove that adjustments could be made to win without Robinson. However, the veteran players remaining did not do much to help the freshman backup quarterback, and that crippled any chance to win the game.

Now Michigan has lost control of its own destiny in the conference championship race. Nebraska still has games against the likes of Penn State, Iowa, and Michigan State, but the Cornhuskers will need to lose at least one for Michigan to slip back to the top of the division standings.

In other words, the Legends Division race just found some definition, and the interesting storylines will continue, especially if this is a long-term problem for Robinson.

Let’s take a look at how each of the Michigan position units are graded in this critical loss that may end up deciding the Legends Division representative in Indianapolis. Thanks for reading and joining us during the game, and feel free to give your own grades below.
