ANN ARBOR - The apologies didn't stop after Saturday's 13-6 loss to No. 10 Notre Dame.
A few days after an impassioned apology for his performance against the Irish - a game in which Robinson was picked off four times - his teammates addressed Robinson's apology and their response, which was also an apology. They weren't going to place the burden on their quarterback.
"We all made mistakes," tailback Fitz Toussaint said. "Not just Denard."
But, he said, Robinson's demeanor hasn't changed in the wake of the loss. And in his apology to the team, Toussaint said, Robinson said it won't happen again.
"We apologized to him, too," Toussaint said.
Defensive lineman Will Campbell said that Robinson addressed the Wolverines in the locker room, and that in response, Robinson's teammates texted and called him in support.
"As a defense, we all went up to Denard and told him, it's a team thing," Campbell said. "As a defense, if they hadn't scored, we would have won."
Offensive lineman Patrick Omameh said those turnovers - six of them, including five interceptions - were preventable.
"That was not something that was on Denard," Omameh said.
And Omameh had a word with Robinson.
"I told him to keep his head up," Omameh said. "We understand that this is a team concept. The game isn't all his, it was the team that put us in that position."
Michigan coach Brady Hoke laid blame across the board.
"You make sure he understands that we took 69 guys to the game, when we've got 115 on this football team," Hoke said. "We're all responsible. Coaches, players, everybody."
