08:15 AM ET 10.23 | Decoy wrinkle or a sign of things to come? Rivalry games often bring out new looks, but Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson on the kickoff return team was not one anyone expected. Robinson was on the level just in front of the deep returner when U-M received the second-half kickoff against Michigan State -- the first MSU kickoff of the game. ... Despite repeated inquiries Monday, Hoke didn't give a strategy or rationale. "Maybe return a kickoff," Hoke said. Whether it was to have Robinson return the kick, block or simply draw attention, Hoke wasn't saying. As for the injury factor, that wasn't an issue, either. "I'm concerned you can walk down the street and fall off the curb," Hoke said.

Yes sir. And it certainly applies here since Michigan is definitely doing just that.

Leave it up to TSUN to get there QB killed, go for it......tell the backup QB he needs to start taking more reps in practice.

If they do that he better keep his head on a swivel, some C.O.C players will be looking to knock his jock off. And since he is 78 % of their offense that would not be good for the Wolverines.

This. In the open field, DR is a dangerous runner. At the next level, he has return man written all over him.
