Michigan sophomore quarterback Denard Robinson secured the starting position after Saturday's performance.
Robinson will start
against N next week

BIGGER HOUSE
From Page 1B
more of an echo, and it gets you
riled up. It's nothing like last year,
it's way louder."
Of course, 113,090 fans - the
largest crowd ever at a football
game according to Michigan offi-
cials - may have had something to
do with that.
"That's why they call it the Big
House," junior tight end Kevin
Koger said. "We have the most
seats, we have the craziest fans.
I was thinking during the game,
'Dang there's a lot of people here,
more than usual.'"
Added freshman punter Will
Hagerup: "When you have a crowd
in there, the biggest crowd in foot-
ball history, and they're all yelling
and they're all into it, I can't see
how that can't be a problem for the
other team."
TATE TRANSFER?: After sitting
on the bench with a towel over his
head and shoulders for much of fel-
low sophomore Denard Robinson's
record-setting performance on
Saturday, quarterback Tate Forcier
told Ann Arbor.com, "All you need
to know is that I'm out."
Forcier declined comment to the
Daily after the game.
When Robinson went down in
the third quarter, both Forcier and
freshman Devin Gardner began
to get loose, but ultimately, it was
Gardner who spelled Robinson
for the few plays that he was out,
despite the fact that Forcier started
every game for the Wolverines last
season.
Forcier quelled rumors earlier
in the summer of a transfer, but
his comments following the game

brought questions of him leaving
the program to the forefront.
In a tweet from MGoBlog's Tom
Van Haaren, Forcier's father, Mike,
responded to questions about his
son possibly transferring.
"As Tate's father, and someone
who would advise him, a trans-
fer isn't something I want to be a
part of," Mike said. "Sometimes
you think, 'Man, do they want him
there?' But we don't think that's
the situation. Rich Rodriguez has
also been straight with us."
SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES: Of
all the areas Rodriguez had shown
concern this summer, special
teams was one of the most worri-
some.
And after Saturday, which
brought windy conditions for most
of the game, questions aren't nec-
essarily answered about the young,
inexperienced position group.
Hagerup only attempted one
punt on the day - aroll punt which
landed and rolled for a total of 51
yards. Meanwhile, redshirt fresh-
man kicker Brendan Gibbons was
1-for-2 on field goals, missing one
short earlier in the game due to
the wind. He also missed an extra
point and struggled to fight the
wind on a few kickoffs.
Special teams coach Tony Gib-
son said the weather was too much
of an issue for the two to be prop-
erly evaluated.
"The wind was just swirling all
day," Gibson said. "We couldn't
ever get it down. It was with us
once, against us once. We just have
to keep trying at it."
INJURY NOTES: Freshman
hybrid safety Carvin Johnson has
a sprained MCL and is day-to-day
after going down in the second
quarter.

Daily Sports Writer
Sophomore quarterback
Denard Robinson is going
to start in Saturday's game
against Notre Dame, Michigan
coach Rich Rodriguez said on
Monday.
Finally, no waiting until the
night before to name a starter.
"Do the same thing you did
last week," NOTEBOOK
Rodri-
guez joked with the media at
his weekly press conference
Monday. "Ask me if he's going
to play, who's going to be the
starter.
"You think it would be a
surprise if (Robinson) doesn't
start? He's earned the start for
sure."
Rodriguez said he would
still give other quarterbacks
reps in practice this week, even
after Robinson set a school
rushing record (197 yards in
one game) for a quarterback
and was 19-for-22 through the
air.
Since the end of Saturday's
game, Robinson's perfor-
mance has garnered quite a
bit of attention from local and
national media outlets. Rob-
inson was named the Walter

after the game. "We made down-
hill runs and we tried to take it
to them. It work for us early, and
it kind of set the tempo for the
rest of the game."
That physicality was abigrea-
son the Wolverine offen-
sive line was able to push
around the undersized
Husky defensive line all
day long, which was how
Michigan held onto the
ball and kept its defense
off the field.
The Wolverines held
possession for 36:52. The
Huskies? 23:08. Michi-
gan's offense racked up
scoring drives of 14, 7, 8,
19 and 11 plays.
It was winning the
time of possession battle
that allowed the Michi-
gan defensive line to
continue to rush the
quarterback and stuff the
run all game.
"That was absolutely
amazing," redshirtjunior
defensive end Ryan Van
Bergen said. "I don't
knowfor how many plays
I was on the field but I
honestly feel pretty fresh
right now.
"The offensive line did
a really great job and the
whole offense did a great
job of picking up first
downs when weuneeded
them."
The defensive line
gave up just 138 yards
rushing to Connecticut,
almost half of which
came in the fourth quar-
ter. And despite not
recording a sack, the line

was all over Frazer.
Especially active was
sophomore Craig Roh.
Roh was all over the field,
recording five tackles,
two for a loss.
"Myself and the
defense as a whole was
just hungry," Roh said.
"We were so hungry ..
We were making plays,
we came out, we were
hungry."

ines' defense expressed
