The University of Michigan football program received good news over the weekend when QB Denard Robinson and DB J.T. Floyd will be returning for their senior seasons.

The two juniors looked over the opinions of the NFL Draft Advisory Board to get a read on where they might get drafted if they decided to go to pro.

Floyd picked off two passes last year.

Robinson should be a Heisman Trophy candidate in 2012. In 2011, he threw for 2,173 yards and ran for 1,176 in his junior season running new coach Brady Hoke’s offense.

Michigan ended the season on a good note, beating Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.

Brendan Gibbons kicked a 37-yard field goal in overtime to give 13th-ranked Michigan to a 23-20 win over #17 Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.

The win ended a comeback to the heights of college football for the Michigan program under first-year head coach Brady Hoke, who led the Wolverines to an 11-2 record a BCS game.

QB Denard Robinson did not dominate the game, but threw touchdown passes of 45 and 18 yards to Junior Hemingway.

Robinson was 9 of 21 passes for 117 yards for 117 yards and an interception and rushed for only 13 yards.

Hemingway was selected as the player of the game for his two-touchdown effort. He finished the game with two pass receptions for 63 yards.

Virginia Tech, who finished the year at 11-3, more than doubled Michigan’s offensive total yardage, 377 to 184, and collected 22 first downs to the Wolverines’ 12 but had trouble scoring TD’s and settle for four field goals in regulation by placekicker Justin Myer, a third-stringer.

Unfortunately, Myer missed on his fifth field goal try from 37 yards out on the opening possession of overtime.


*The Virginia Tech Hokies under Frank Beamer at 11-3 did not win a conference championship. They lost twice to Clemson by a combined 48 points, including a 38-10 humiliation in the ACC title game.

*In BCS games, the Hokies are 1-5.

*The Hokies strong pass rush created 38 sacks in 2011.

*Virginia Tech relied on their 12th-ranked defense to control games.

*Michigan’s are 12th in the nation in rushing with 235.7 yards a game, and QB Denard Robinson (96.9-yard average) and RB Fitzgerald Toussaint (91.9) were the big-time playmakers.

*Michigan head coach Brady Hoke turned around Ball State, San Diego State and now Michigan and earned the 2011 Big Ten Coach of the Year honors.

*The Wolverines’ BCS record is 2-3.

* Denard Robinson ended the year with some impressive totals: rushed for 1,163 yards and passed for 2,056 yards and accounted for 34 touchdowns overall.

He broke team rules and did not make the trip to the Sugar Bowl against Arkansas, and on May 1, former head coach Jim Tressel suspended him for the 2011 season on a third violation of drug alcohol policy.

Ohio State tight end Reid Fragel on his Twitter account told fans that he has been released from the hospital after being diagnosed with a MRSA staph infection in his leg.

MRSA stands for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus which is a bacteria common in athletes from skin contact in locker rooms and gyms.

Ohio State has not confirmed anything about Fragel citing privacy rules.

A 6’6, 280-pounder, shares the tight end position with Jake Stoneburner as a sophomore in 2010.

Fragel caught nine passes for 121 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown reception against Iowa. Fragel had a 42-yard catch in the Sugar Bowl against Arkansas.
