Opps he did it again. He showed a few glimpse of this last year, but where in the world has Denard Robinson come from? 244 yards passing and 258 yards rushing with 3 total scores. Not to mention leading the Wolverines back in the 4th quarter with under 20 seconds left to beat the Irish in South Bend 28-24. Rich Rod's crew is 2-0 and looks good. I expect to see them in the top 25 this week.
Ohio State hosted Miami in what was touted as part of Monster Saturday. Just like in 2002, the Buckeyes beat the Canes, this time it didn't take a Phantom Flag. Jacory Harris had a rough day vs the Bucks in the rain and Terrelle Pryor put up 340+ of yards of offense.
In Iowa City the Hawkeyes destroyed their instate rival Iowa State by taking their manhood in the first quarter and never letting them have it back Hawks won 35-7. It was the first time ISU had scored a touchdown vs the Hawks since 2006.
Then there's the Gophers. It's probably safe to say that Tim Brewster's job is in jeopardy. Div-1AA South Dakota rolled in to TCF Stadium and QB Dante Warrne put up 400+ yards and the Coyotes gave the Gophers a huge upset.
In other games Alabama rolled over Penn State. Northwestern handled Illinois State. Wisconsin got by San Jose State. Michigan State beat Florida Atlantic and Purdue got by Western Illinois.
Helmet Sticker - Denard Robinson - QB - Michigan. Yea, 2 weeks, 2 helmet stickers. 500+ yards of offense from one guy. Yea, he's good. Right now Michigan is rolling and it's because of #16
Team of the Week - Ohio State - This could have gone to Michigan, but going to go with the Buckeyes with the way the performed and dominated a top #15 team in Miami. Pryor looked really good.
Game of the Week - Michigan 28 : Notre Dame 24. The Irish had a nice 95 yard rainbow pass to take the lead late in the 4th quarter. They left to much time on the clock for Denard Robinson and the Wolverines. They drove the ball down, Denard was amazing on the drive and ran the in for the score.
Highlight of the Week -
I went 9-1 on my Week 2 picks, thank you Minnesota! 20-1 on the year.
Week 3 has a Rose Bowl type feel to it with 3 Big Ten - Pac10 matchups. Iowa vs Arizona is probably game of the week while Wisconsin hosts Arizona State and USC goes to Minneapolis to take on the Gophers.
