While many will be quick to say Denard Robinson could not have been a winner from The Game this weekend because of his fumble in the third quarter, the senior quarterback still had the play of the game for the Michigan Wolverines in the first half.
Robinson's 67-yard touchdown run put the Wolverines up 21-17 with only 40 seconds remaining in the second quarter, and the Deerfield Beach, Florida native had 124 rushing yards on six carries by halftime.
Unfortunately, as mentioned earlier in this slideshow, Al Borges did not manage the tandem of Robinson and Devin Gardner as well as he could have, which ultimately cost Michigan its chance to pick up a win in Columbus for the first time since 2000.
Robinson did all he could to help the Wolverines top the Ohio State Buckeyes for a second straight year, and the defense continued to give one of college football's most electrifying players chance after chance to break off one more dazzling run to win the game.
Every time, though, Borges chose to put Robinson on the field for 3rd-and-short situations without Gardner at quarterback, or even on the field, for that matter, and put Michigan's biggest star in predictable situations.
Borges' play-calling in the third and fourth quarter never gave Robinson a chance to do the same amount of damage he did to Ohio State's defense early on.
